We were talking . . . about this place . . . what is it? . . . 

Is it just the military ... or is it an academic 

community where we and they communicate 

and learn together . . . 


But it is also the military ... and the military 

makes it unique ... its demands are 

great ... its rewards less than abundant . ; . 

"It's out of time," he said . . . "It's changing," 

I said. "It's trying to catch up." ... It 

suffers the pains of an institution built on 

tradition, yet whose goal is to inspire the 

young ... to enable them to cope with 

a changing Navy ... a Navy which must provide 

a strategic deterrent one day and total 

flexible response the next. 





We were talking . . . about these buildings . . . what is 

done here? . . . There are new labs for the study of 

everything from atomic physics to oceanography . . . 

and there are classrooms still used where the likes 

of Halsey and Nimitz studied the works of Mahan. 

Yet too often education becomes a search for 

the duty equation ... or the gouge on the next 

P-work . . . and true education is left in the books.

"It's not that. They want us to be a stable 
force - strong enough to lead people in an 
overly permissive society."

It was only two years ago that the Second Class 
Squad Leaders walked through the same doors 
admiring the coolness and competence of the man 
who was telling them which way to go. Only 
after becoming summer squad leaders do they 
realize that they themselves are more tense 
than any plebe. 

The White Badge 
of Courage 

For the squad leader, plebe summer 

involves complete responsibility 

for the training of individuals, each 

with a unique background - 

instructing, counseling, correcting, 

punishing, reporting, reprimanding, 

mustering, inspecting and 




It involves a ceaseless facade of 
confidence and almost inhuman harshness. 


It involves constant aloneness which is accompanied 
by silence only after the last plebe has turned in for his 

eight hours of sleep.

Plebe Summer 
Brings Class of 

72 Into Brigade. 

The big transition. Tlie veneer of individuality 
is stripped away. It lies in piles of shorn hair, or 
is shipped home with civilian clothes. In its place 
is developed the individuality of the inner man, 
which soon becomes apparent. The natural lead- 
ers surge forward, but often the slow starter and 
the plodder come out the best. 

First it is a circus madhouse, a surging 
rollercoaster without direction or control, with 
gargoyle-like squad leaders barking orders from 
the sides as you rush past. Time becomes a live 
dimension, she races with you or drags along in 
spite of you as she pleases. Three of her minutes 
on a uniform race dilate to an eternity when 
doing leg raises. 

But order returns one day. Chaos is replaced 
by learning. The rifle range, knockabouts, yp's, 
p— rades, and lecture upon lecture point the way 
to a new life. 

The culmination of plebe summer is Parents' 
Weekend. Parents come to explore the academy 
and in the process discover a new son, one who is 
now well prepared to begin a rewarding four

This year the class of '48 celebrated their 
twentieth reunion. In honor of the event, they 
presented the brigade with a new baby goat to 
carry on the tradition of Navy Mascots. 

Boston College, unfortunately, had little re- 
spect for either grads or goats, and pasted us with 
a 49 to 15 romp. At least the weather was on our 
side. It was a sunny weekend, well suited to 
sailing and reminiscing. 

As usual, the Alumni Dinner and Party was a 
success. Old friends and old wine gave a warm 
temper to the festivities. 

Many drags caught their first glimpse of how 
we live as they visited our rooms during visiting 
hours. Comments ranged from "neat but dreary" 
to "Where are your drapes?"

The City of Chicago played host to the 1968 
Navy— Air Force game. In gratitude for this 
opportunity, the City Fathers volunteered to 
assume the expenses of transporting two thou- 
sand midshipmen and an equal number of cadets 
to the game, and to feed, house, and entertain 
them for a day. The sixteen hour bus and train 
marathon left much to be desired. However, the 
gilded extravagance of the Conrad Hilton made 
luxurious fare compared to the stark sterility of 
Mother Bancroft. 

The march to Soldiers Field proceeded without 
incident from demonstrators, mostly due to the 
apathy of the yippies and company, although 
Mayor Daley's legions will probably get a large 
measure of credit. The lack of sanguinity proved 
our accompanying officer corps' anxieties to be 
folly, as usual. 

The game proved to be a more substantial 
struggle. Air Force finally winning, 26 to 20. 
Navy spirit got a real boost from the four comely 
additions to our cheerleading corps, compliments 
of the Chicago Playboy Club. 

The post-game festivities were equally memo- 
rable: Dinner and dancing in the Hilton Ballroom 
with dates provided by the city. The surround- 
ings were elegant, the cuisine excellent, but the 
bar, alas, was dry. Local taverns saved the day, 
and the ball assumed a more convivial aspect. 

The blind dates turned out to be a bell-shaped 
cross-section of American college beauty, with 
the mean falling into the not-much-on-looks-but- 
a-good-personality type. Men who happened to 
draw partners from the fninus three sigma group 
could take solace in the many cash prizes which 
accompanied their misfortune.

"Beat Army": Not 
A Good Year For 

The one big one. "No matter what your 
win-loss record, if you beat Army you have a 
winning season," so the cliche goes. That's not 
really true, but everyone knows Army is the 
most important. You can feel the excitement 
building for two weeks before the game. Banners, 
posters, and models of all sorts adorn Tecumseh 
Court, where the old Indian himself dons his 
warpaint, reminding the Mids to think hostility 
as they go to class. 

As always, you throw out the record book for 
the Army-Navy game. Despite a dismal record to 
date, we pulled into a 14-14 tie late in the game, 
only to be beaten by a long scoring pass, 21-14. 
But time heals all wounds; in this case the time 
being about 3 hours from the end of the game to 
the beginning of the various parties. The largest 
affair is always the ball at the Bellevue-Stratford, 
but the real action was elsewhere, especially in 
the Crew Club's boathouses along the Schuylkill 
river above the Art Museum. For those not 
fortunate enough to be on a weekend, it all ends 
at midnight, as the return buses load for the trip 
back. After bidding his drag adieu, the average 
mid, noble creature, stumbled aboard the bus for 
several hours of induced oblivion, muttering, 
"Wait till next year."

U. S. N. A. Is A 
Good Place To 
Be From . . . 

To most of us living beyond the range of 
practical travel for a normal weekend, Christmas 
was an opportunity to visit parents and sweet- 
hearts after several months of separation. It was a 
time of dates and bars and parties, of gift- 
exchanging, and of skiing or swimming. 

The build-up of enthusiasm for Christmas 
really started after the Army-Navy game, and 
reached its climax in the food throwing battle in 
the mess hall on the morning of leave. The signs 
of the build-up were manifold. Doors were dec- 
orated in the guise of Christmas packages, trees 
and tinsel and sparkling lights appeared in every 
room, and musical tastes turned to carols of the 

In the Academic Department, the signs of 
Christmas were a deterioration in the already 
meager interest displayed for most subjects, and 
a far away look in the eyes of the students. Many 
companies sponsored company parties as an out- 
let for the high spirits which advent of Christmas 
leave brought on. The Chapel Choir presented 
their annual Messiah, and of course there was a 
Christmas Formal. But these mere trappings 
could not communicate the feeling at that last 
formation and the dismissal to go on leave. 


Dark Ages Bring 

Year into Home 


This year, as In every year gone past, the 
period from the beginning of the second semester 
until Spring Leave was characterized by the 
special attitude from which it derives its 
name . . . The Dark Ages. Yet it was more than 
just a period of time; it was an attitude, an 
atmosphere, a way of life characterized by 
monotony and indifference. 

It was a time of work, study, and practice 
levied on spirits already deflated by the end of 
Christmas Leave and no prospect of another 
leave for several months. 

It was a time of cold wind and snow and sleet 
on the way to morning classes. 

It was paying eighteen dollars a month for a 
garage out in town. 

It was being put in hack for the weekend 
because someone in your squad didn't have a 
recent haircut. 

It was having to take your only date in a 
month to the drag house to watch television on a 
Sunday afternoon. 

But it was also a time of humor, the perverse, 
ironic kind that evolves in an all male society. 
Such things as "coming around" to a Plebe, or 
presenting a brick to the guy who had the ugliest 
date on the weekend, or setting booby-traps for 
the window closer were great tedium breakers.

Dark Ages 

Also, there were several memorable events 
during the Dark Ages, such as the Masqueraders 
Show, Sen/ice Selection Night, Musical Clubs 
Show, Exchange Weekends, and others, not to 
mention the many smaller events which stand 
out, such as the Friday night beer busts, and the 
arrival of a new football coach. 

Now, in retrospect, the Dark Ages appear as 
they really were, a time rough to live but fun to 
relive in the accompanying pages. 



Becket Highlight 
of Masqueraders 

As always, a certain sign of Spring at the Naval 
Academy was seeing the members of the 
Masqueraders running around Bancroft Hall 
carrying weird costumes, sporting most un- 
Academy like long hair, and smelling of grease 
paint. One could easily deduce that they were 
hard at work producing the annual Masquerader's 
Spring Show. This year required an even more 
extraordinary amount of time and effort by the 
cast and crew, as the Masqueraders ambitiously 
decided to produce the play "Becket" by Jean 
Anouilh. The very professional and highly en- 
joyable performance which resulted was an ex- 
cellent example of the diverse talents found in 
the Brigade. 



Night Closes Out 

Dark Ages 

Hundredth Night this year was the topic of 
heated discussion in many wardrooms. Many 
progressive minded companies decided that the 
practice was outdated now that the days of real 
Plebe-running were superseded by the new 
Plebe Indoctrination Manual, which expressly 
forbade the popular torture techniques of yore. 
Other companies opted to continue 100th 
Night as a sacred tradition. The result was an 
uproarious evening, with the emphasis on fun 
rather than sweat. The Plebes were spectators 
to such exciting contests as First Class shoe 
polish races, nude leap frog, relay races, carrier 
landings, and uniform races. Whether or not the 
100th Night ceremonies continue in years to 
come is moot, but if it does, it will likely be 
modeled after this past one.

Once Upon a 

1969 will be remembered as the year in which 
the Musical Clubs Show left the realm of variety 
shows and moved into full length Broadway 
Musical Comedies. 

The first effort, Once Upon a Mattress, by 
Marshall Barer and Mary Rodgers, was a 
resounding success. "Mattress" proved to be an 
excellent choice for the first musical because of 
its light, just-for-fun theme. "Mattress" is the 
kind of show that can be enjoyed by everyone, 
including the cast, who had many good times in 
producing a superb show.

Dago Ball 

This year the combined Foreign Language 
Clubs sponsored a Ball with the young ladies of 
foreign nationality in the Washington, D. C. area. 
The Ball was attended by several bus loads of 
daughters from the foreign embassies and 
exchange students from the area universities. 
Following the formal reception in Memorial Hall 
the group retired to Smoke Hall for refreshments 
and dance music provided by the Spiffies. The 
affair provided an excellent opportunity to 
utilize acquired foreign language skills and to 
foster a better international understanding, not to 
mention meeting an attractive girl.

is Spring 

Most probably, the nicest time at tine Naval 
Academy is during the Spring. The "Dark Ages" 
are past and the only thing left to do is prepare 
for finals. It is the beginning of the end of 
another year at Navy. It is a time of anticipation 
of the future amid great activity. June Week 
can't be too far away and thoughts of summer 
leaves, girls, cars and parties are evident in every- 
one's conversations.

In one of the Chauvenet Hall conference roonns the academic board is deciding major policy changes with regards to the academic program. 

Academic Board 

A. Bernard Drought became Dean of the 
Naval Academy at a very critical time. Midship- 
men marched to class and everyone followed the 
same academic program regardless of ability or 
past education. Pressure from all over the nation 
pointed out the need for a more academic atmo- 
sphere here. The academy under his leadership 
has made steady progress in improving the edu- 
cational opportunities available for midshipmen. 

Since his appointment as Dean in 1964, the 
academy has introduced validation, the minors 
program, and the option to overload academic 
courses. There are programs under study to elim- 
inate most of the remaining core courses which 
lead to a B.S. degree in engineering and allow 
midshipmen to major in fields of their choice. 

The changes have not been easy nor has the 
academic community remained completely pas- 
sive to them. During the fall of 1966 the acad- 
emy was disrupted by a grade fixing scandal. The 
cause was finally labeled a misunderstanding and 
a resulting disagreement over the speed of the 
academic revolution. 

With the appointment of A. Bernard Drought as academic dean of the academy, a new era of 
academic change was born. The academy is currently in its second generation of change.

Chauvenet Hall offers a stark contrast to the 
old home of mathematics. Buildings 133 and 186 
tucked in next to the laundry. The department 
considers itself more of a means to an end rather 
than an end in itself. One of its stated objectives 
is to provide the midshipman an ease in the use 
of mathematics in order to solve problems in 
other departments. This objective causes a prob- 
lem of co-ordination between departments. What 
midshipman has not heard that he has certainly 
had all the techniques necessary for certain prob- 
lem solving taught to him in the math depart- 
ment, when in fact he is lucky if the techniques 
were even in the same math book he used? 

In the present program of studies, three se- 
mesters of calculus, one semester of probability 
and one semester of vector theory are required. 


Obtaining extra instruction is much easier and more pleasant in the new surroundings of Chauvenet 





A midshipman studies a programmed lesson in science. The academy is pioneering in the field of computer teaching in hopes that the bulk of the nation's 
future educational systems can utilize this aid. 



This year the science department moved into 
Michelson Hall. During the past few years notice- 
able changes have been taking place in search of 
that better way to convey knowledge to midship- 
men. The department tries to demonstrate to 
each student basic principles upon which all our 
more specialized tools and equipment are built. 
Many times on the brink of despair, a midship- 
man has been told that the subject matter itself is 
not the only consideration. The logical thought 
processes involved in understanding the subject 
and solving its problems are of equal importance. 
This fact may be true, but most difficult for a 
midshipman at the far right of a grading curve to 

In the core curriculum the department teaches 
chemistry, electrical science, and physics. This 
year the department has moved into the realm of 
computer instruction on an experimental basis. If 
successful, the program will be introduced as a 
teaching method in all areas of academics and 
serve as a prototype for universities across the 

Michelson Hall offers many new laboratory 
facilities. The new labs include an acoustics lab, 
biology lab, for oceanographic work and a dark 
room for time lapse work. 




It is hard to understand — but, what's so important about Compton's effect and pair-production anyway? 




Introducing midshipmen to the fundamentals 
required in the operation of shipboard propul- 
sion systems and aircraft operation is the primary 
objective of the engineering department. To this 
end, the department has extensive classroom and 
laboratory facilities in Isherwood, Griffin, and 
Melville Halls. The laboratory complexes include 
the sub-critical reactor, the mechanics and mate- 
rials lab, the fluid mechanics lab, the internal 
combustion lab, the wind tunnel, the ship hydro- 
mechanics lab and the thermo-dynamics labora- 

Minors offered include aerospace engineering, 
mechanical engineering, and naval engineering 
with either a naval architecture or marine engi- 
neering option. Engineering stands to be the next 
recipient in the extensive building program un- 
derway at the naval academy. The present plan 
includes razing the present facilities and building 
a new structure as an extension of the new 
Michelson Hall complex. 

Two midshipmen are taking radioactivity readings as 
part of their reactors lab. The sub-critical reactor is 
located in Melville Hall. 






In Isherwood Hall midshipmen and their instructor wait for a tensile specimen to separate as part of a strength of materials lab. 


Lt. W. S. Norman, a Naval Flight Officer, discusses some of the 
European agreements which led up to World War II.

History and 

Although the emphasis at the academy is on 
the technical and the professional, the English, 
History, and Government department attempts 
to round out the midshipman in the social 
sciences and the humanities. In addition to the 
eight required courses, the department offers 
over sixty electives in areas from speech to 
political theory and from western literary heri- 
tage to modern African problems. 

In the core program the midshipman is ex- 
posed to subjects ranging from the inner work- 
ings and hidden mechanisms of American govern- 
ment to the fundamental principles of seapower. 

Each year the academy sponsors the Naval 
Academy Foreign Affairs Conference (NAFAC). 
Colleges from all over the United States send 
their best students in foreign affairs to this week 
of panel discussion and guest lectures. This year's 
planned topic covers the problems associated 
with the Indian Ocean Area. 

The department plans to move into facilities 
being remodeled in Sampson Hall. 



The Modern Languages Department is pres- 
ently located in the old academy infirmary but is 
soon to move to Ward Hall, the present weap- 
ons-computer center. The department offers in 
struction in French, Italian, Portugese, German, 
Russian, Spanish, and Chinese. The Chinese pro- 
gram was instituted in the academic year of 

The department has extensive laboratory and 
tape facilities to aid in language instruction. Also 
officers of foreign navies are assigned as in- 
structors as part of an exchange program. The 
Language clubs hold banquets to offer an oppor- 
tunity for the midshipmen to practice their lin- 
guistic skills in after dinner speaking programs. 
Trips are also organized to view plays, visit em- 
bassies, and offer midshipmen other exposures to 
the culture of the people whose language they 
are studying. 

Each fourthclassman is required to take two 
semesters of a language of his choice or show 
enough proficiency to validate the two semesters. 
It is hoped that during this exposure the fourth- 
classman not only picks up a good introduction 
to his chosen language, but also realizes the 
potential importance of the knowledge of a 
foreign language to a naval officer. 

While studying in intermediate levels, students are first 
exposed to literature of the language they are studying. 
In this Russian class Associate Professor Tolstoy is dis- 
cussing some of the points of a poem by Yevgeny 
Yevtushenko that the students are translating. 


Naval Science 

In Luce Hall can be found today's naval 
leaders attempting to teach nnidshipmen the sub- 
tleties of their future profession. In addition to 
the classroom facilities available in Luce Hall, 
there are four operational Combat Information 
Centers, a Navigation Plotting Room, a Plane- 
tarium, and a new Environmental Science Lab- 

The curriculum offered by the department is 
undergoing great change. Current emphasis is on 
bringing back many professionally oriented sub- 
jects cut in recent academic upheavals. The new 
orientation course being offered to the fourth 
class is one such example. 

Minors programs offered include management, 
operations analysis, and oceanography, all 
growing fields becoming increasingly important 
in today's world. The leadership techniques dem- 
onstrated and taught in the management courses 
are particularly important in the training of a 
naval officer. 

Who can forget the two hours spent assem- 
bling a confidential pub that could have taken 
one hour, or for those in the class of '69, being 
called to attention second class year at the signal 
drill test. 

Members of the first class receive military law infor- 
mation which will be very useful to them in the fleet. 

Naval Science 

Naval Science is also responsible for one of 
the more favorite subjects here at the Naval 
Academy — Naval Tactics. When not out running 
tactics on the YP's (yard patrol craft unique to 
the Naval Academy and the Naval War College in 
Newport, Rhode island) midshipmen spend time 
in the Combat Information Centers running anti- 
air and anti-submarine operations. No midship- 
man particularly the Marines and the Airdales 
will ever forget the weather during the late 
November operational season or the early March 

'Now when LHA equals — no, wait a minute — local mean ti-, no — if Betelgeuse is near Spica and — Sir, are you sure this is for real?'

Lt. Hammer explains the operation of shipboard departments to a plebe class. 



Until this year the first contact that a mid- 
shipman had with the Weapons Department after 
plebe summer was during first class year. And at 
times during the first semester, many a midship- 
man felt that the department was seeking revenge 
for the forced separation. This feeling came in 
spite of the department's revision of the courses 
in order that they be more meaningful to a 
midshipman and his career. 

Much remodeling has been done in Ward Hall 
in the past four years, and there are now good 
facilities for digital and analog computer study 
and explosives experimentation. Ward Hall also 
houses the educational television studio. This 
year the fourth classmen were introduced to 
shipboard systems to help them prepare for their 
youngster cruise. 

The department produces many men in ad- 
vanced courses who go on after graduation to do 
extremely well in post-graduate systems analysis 


Unhappiness is having the error statement come out 
longer than the program, but aid is always available to 
the bewildered midshipman. 



The academy library system, in spite of its 
recent expansions, is still pressed for space. The 
present facilities include the Mahan Hall library, 
the Annex, the Brigade library, and the Isher- 
wood Hall technical library. One of the proposed 
new buildings will be a new library to serve the 

The Mahan library is the largest and oldest 
and serves as the major source for term papers. 
The Brigade library is part of Bancroft and serves 
as a comfortable study area. Periodicals and 
other references are kept in the Annex. The 
Isherwood library was created to help ease the 
strain on the Mahan library and to provide a 
central source of technical material for midship- 
man use. 

The Mahan library serves as a place to stop and study during a free period 
before class. 


Coach Higgins demonstrates the rudiments of the side-stroke to a group of maybe not-so-eager midshipmen. The academy places high priority on knowledge of 
basic swimming skills for all midshipmen. 



Sweating through math class after wrestling, 
smelling of leather head gear through the rest of 
a four-N Saturday morning, swallowing vast 
quantities of Natatorium water in the last 
seconds of the two-hundred, nursing blisters and 
bruises from gymnastics — all are the more color- 
ful memories left us by the physical education 

The department is not only responsible for 
our "academic" athletics, but also co-ordinates 
and supervises the intramural and varsity athletic 
programs at the academy. The intramural pro- 
gram one of the largest such programs in the 
nation is backed by facilities which include the 
Field House, Dahlgren Hall, Macdonough Hall, 
the Natatorium, and one-hundred acres of ath- 
letic fields. 

With these extensive facilities available to the 
department, it achieves a high degree of success 
in accomplishing its objectives of developing skill 
and confidence in the midshipman, introducing 
to and teaching him carry-over sports and giving 
him instruction in organizing and conducting ath- 
letic programs after graduation.

Trident Scholars 

The Trident Scholar Program has slowly 
grown fronn six scholars in 1963 to sixteen in 
1968. The ainn of the program is to provide a few 
exceptionally capable midshipmen with the 
opportunity to carry on independent studies 
during first class year. Midshipmen are selected 
for the program at the end of second class year 
and are exempted from the major portion of the 
core curriculum of first class year. A member of 
the faculty, familiar with the project area, is 
assigned to each midshipman as an adviser. Tri- 
dent scholars meet periodically with the Trident 
Committee, a group of the teaching faculty 
familiar with research projects, at dinners and 
after, present a report of the progress of their 
project for critical review. Upon the completion 
of the project, the midshipmen are required to 
submit written papers based on their research 
and findings.

Class Officers 

Yes, Virginia, the Naval Academy does have class officers but it 
isn't easy. How do you represent John Average Mid in an environ- 
ment where "chain of command" is a way of life and central 
authority decides what kind of toothbrush everyone uses. It isn't 
easy — it may not be possible — but this year's officers tried 

Under the able leadership of President, Bill Newton, the 1969 
officers presented the controversial class policy, redefined the 
Plebe system, and consistently displayed an awareness of rank and 
file opinion. All four cabinets dealt with such diverse problems as 
the honor concept, spirit and midshipman alienation. 

In a year when college students across the nation are demanding 
an increased voice in their administration, the midshipman class 
officers remain the single most important link between the Brigade 
and authority. It isn't an easy job.

Brigade Honor 

It is honor, they said, which makes us dif- 
ferent and the Brigade Honor Committee is the 
outgrowth of that belief. Times are changing. 
Honor is no longer a "popular" thing. But here at 
Annapolis the honor concept is an inseparable 
part of our life. This year's Honor Committee has 
continued to make our honor system a dynamic

Fahy (Brigade Liason), R.I. Lyies (Secretary-Recorder). 

Car Committee 

You want a GTO, you say? The smell of 
burning rubber is in your nostrils. The sound of 
four barrel carbs is in your ears . . . and nothing 
can stop you from plunging yourself into debt. 
The job of the Car Committee is to make that 
debt a little less, whether your choice be MG, 
Corvette or Falcon. The Car Committee price is 
probably right. Tromp on those new accelerators. 
Maybe now you can afford the gasoline. 

A. L. Normand (Chairman), P. D. Sullivan (Secretary), E. S. Kendig (Treasurer). 


Brigade Hop 

When the midwatch seems long and you've 
been under water for two months or sitting in 
the ready room all day, you may turn to mem- 
ories to kill time. One of those might be the 
dance back at school which was just right. Maybe 
you didn't stay long. You probably headed for 
the drag house before 10 o'clock but somehow 
the mood was right. You probably won't remem- 
ber the Brigade Hop Committee. It's just as well 
but without them, and Mrs. M., there wouldn't 
have been that perfect dance.

Manager), W.J. Kopp (Chairman), IVlrs. IVI. 


If you were a visiting athlete, the first bright 
and shining middle you'd meet would probably 
be a member of the Reception Committee. These 
men meet, escort and care for visitors to 
Annapolis and try to explain the oddities of our 
life. Public relations has always been an essential 
part of the Naval Academy program. The Re- 
ception Committee carries on the tradition of 
Navy hospitality.

Public Relations 

Not all public relations men hail from Madi- 
son Avenue. The Brigade has its own brand of PR 
man in the Public Relations Committee. The

Navy sports, assisting the Academy Sports pub- 
licity man. Bud Thalman. The committee plan- 
ned trips to a Bullets game in the winter and a

Brigade Art 
and Printing Club 

Spirit is part of Annapolis and the Art and

dons war paint prior to the Army game, when 
posters fortell the fate of Navy's foes, and when 
the gridiron end zones are painted blue and gold, 
the BAPC has been in action. Whether it be JFK 
Stadium or Chicago, the world knows we're 
coming. Thanks to the Art and Printing Club.

Trident Society 

The Trident Society searches for the aesthetic 
side of the Brigade. It's not easy to find, but by 
sponsoring contests each year, the society un- 
covers our unsung artists, poets, and photog- 
raphers. Who knows what they might find? After 
all Edgar Allan Poe went to West Point.

1969 Class Ring 
and Crest Committee 

Our ring and our crest mean a little more here 
than they do at other schools. Sometimes the 
crest is the only material symbol of a relationship 
which may span a continent and involve months 
of separation. Sometimes our ring is the symbol 
of the arrogant "ring knocker" or an unexplain- 
able feeling of comradeship. For better or for 
worse, both mark us as Annapolis men. The 
engineering and logistics of the 1969 Ring and 
Crest were the responsibility of the Ring and 
Crest Committee. They have capably carried on 
one of our most hallowed traditions.

BAC, Cheerleaders,

"The Spirit of the Brigade" — how many 
times have we heard that phrase? There is some- 
thing in those words. — even the most hardened 
and cynical of us will admit it — and it is institu- 
tionalized in the Brigade Activities Committee, 
the Cheerleaders, the Cannoneers and the Goat- 

We've had our high points - the Army pep 
rally, the Notre Dame game and the Pre-Army 
decorations — and our low points — the "Hemo- 
globin" cheer, but always the BAC, the Cheer- 
leaders, the Cannoneers and the Goatkeepers 
have been there. It might be "Cliffs" and "Ski" 
at a pep rally. It might be Richard Red or Craig 
Gillespie trying to hold a couple hundred pounds 
of ornery goat — or Hal Williams touching off a 
cannon after a big touchdown or Hugh Batten 
leading a whisper cheer in front of 4,000 mids 
screaming insanely because it's us against them 
and that's good enough reason for any midship- 
man. What is the "Spirit of the Brigade." It's 
hard to say but drop around before the Army 
game and you'll know it's there.

Drum and Bugle Corps 

Everybody loves a parade but some of us like 
them a lot better than others. The Drum and 
Bugle Corps is a group that takes parading and 
music — seriously and the result is one of the 
finest marching and playing groups in the coun- 
try. Three times a day, in the Spring and Fall, the 
D and B serenades us into meals. Once a week, in 
the Spring and Fall, the D and B accompanies us 
to Worden Field. The Drum and Bugle Corps 
comes into its own glory, however, on those 
Saturday football games in the fall. It may not 
have a bubble machine but there aren't many 
college marching bands which get cheered by 
their own student body. Everybody likes a D and 
B parade.

The Annapolis Management Forum is a new 
organization at the Academy. Although it isn't 
the Dale Carnegie Institute or the Harvard Busi- 
ness School, it's existence underscores the 
importance of management in today's Navy. By 
sponsoring lectures and programs, the forum 
hopes to promote interest in management within 
the Brigade. General Motors watch out! The

sociate of the American Association for the Ad- 
vancement of Science, the organization recog- 
nizes those midshipmen who have displayed 
ability in physics and seeks to promote interest

session on the fourth deck of Maury Hall or 
hosting sixty teams at the Naval Academy's 
Annual Invitational Debate Tournament. Wher-

Combined Foreign Language Clubs 

It may sound like the tower of Babel but it's probably just a meeting of the 
Combined Foreign Language Clubs. The CFLD is a combination of the French, 
Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and Russian Clubs. Throughout the year, each 
individual club sponsors banquets and field trips to embassies or cultural events. In 
March all the clubs stage the International Ball. At this classic event the CFLD invites 
girls from the different embassies in Washington — the girls all speak, (not 
surprisingly), foreign languages. The clubs help project a multilingual image of the 
Naval Academy.

Relations Club 

The Foreign Relations Club is concerned with 
matters of foreign policy. It speaks a language 
characterized by "overkill", "proliferation", 
"polycenterism", "heartland theories" and 
"inherent dichotomies." Once you've mastered 
these words, you'll be able to enjoy the series of 
lectures and banquets which the club sponsors. 
The FRC also sends delegates to foreign affairs 
conferences at other schools around the country. 
These diplomat - warriors — represent the 
military viewpoint in foreign policy. 


The Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Confer- 
ence is an annual gathering of college students 
from across the country to discuss the problems 
of a specific geographic area. This year's topic is 
"The Indian Ocean Area". Guest speakers 
address the delegates about specific problems but 
the heart of the conference is the round table 
discussions at which students, with the assistance 
of experts, debate particular problems.

Y P Squadron 

It takes a different kind of guy to brave the 
elennents on the bridge of a YP. In foul weather 
or fair, the Naval Academy YP Squadron always 
sails. These professionally-minded midshipman 
use their spare time during the afternoons or 
weekends to become proficient seamen. All is 
not work, however. Each year the squadron 
makes trips to Philadelphia, Baltimore and other 
ports where liberty goes and good times are 
plentiful. This years access to the yacht, Green 
Ray, added an element of class to its activities.

Antiphonal Choir 

Twice each Sunday, the still of the morning is 
broken by the beat of the drums and the martial 
strains of the band. The Brigade of IVIidshipman 
is marching to Chapel. 

First to arrive and last to leave are the choirs. 
The Brigade has three: The Catholic Chapel 
Choir, the Protestant Chapel Choir, and the An- 
tiphonal Choir. The Catholics sing at early Mass 
each Sunday morning; the Protestants and the 
"Antiphs" sing at the 1 100 service. 

A choir doesn't just happen. It must be guided 
toward harmony and discipline. Such guidance is 
the realm of Prof. Gilly and Prof. McCuen. Prof. 
Gilly handles the Protestant and Antiphonal. 
Prof. McCuen directs the Catholic Chapel Choir. 

Some of us sleep in Chapel, some of us check 
out the drags, some of us even look into our- 
selves. Whatever our pastime the choirs help 
create an hour of contemplation for all of us.

Big Brothers 

Maybe you don't like little kids, but members 
of the Big Brothers do. More important kids like 
them. Big Brothers is bigger than the Naval Acad- 
emy. It extends across the nation and its single 
most important idea is that every guy needs a big 
brother. The organization screens applicants care- 
fully and pairs up the brothers. 

What do brothers do? They toss a football 
around. They'll watch a wrestling match or go to 
Muhlmeister's or sail a knockabout or just talk; 
nothing particularly spectacular. 

Why does a guy do it? It could be there's a 
quiet satisfaction in being a Big Brother. It might 
be kind of nice to be needed somewhere. It might 
be rewarding to do something outside those gray 
walls. There's only one way to find out. Try It.

You've heard them at Wednesday evening 
meal, at the Musical Club Show and probably at 
a couple of dances. They call themselves the NA

NA - 10 isn't limited to an Academy audience. 
In December, after the Messiah, the band travels 
to Hood College. The NA-10 proves that the 
big band still lives on.

Midshipmen's Concert Band. Whether the music 
be Beethoven or the Beatles, the MCB delivers

year the band played for several area girls' col- 
leges, among them Hood and Penn Hall. The

Many Americans know the Naval Academy by 
only two of its institutions. One is the football 
team and the other is the U.S.N.A. Glee Club. 
There's something about those closely cropped 
heads, gold buttons and "Anchors Away". 
People like it and the Academy public relations- 
men know it, so the Glee Club is probably on the 
road more than any other Annapolis group. They 
sing in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and the 
midwest. They've played in Madison Square 
Garden, on the Mike Douglas Show, and, na- 
turally, they've hit the girls' school circuit. 
Though there be riots in the streets and demon- 
strations on the campuses, listen America! The

and Make-up officers: S.L. Garrett 
(Support manager), R.J. Morris 
(Financial manager), R.J. Amund- 
son (Stage manager), G.F. Quillinan 
(Production head). Not shown: P. 
Rieth (Make-up gang head). 



Sometimes an organization catches fire. The 
incendiary ingredients cannot be assembled, they 
just have to happen— the right membership, the 
right leadership, the right advisor, the right at- 
mosphere. This year's Masqueraders and their 
associated Stage, Property and Make-up and 
Juice Gangs have been such an organization. 

The Masqueraders haven't stopped moving. In 
the fall, they produced "A Time for Mourning," 
the Brigade Honor play. Using the stage as its 
medium, the group dramatized a problem close 
to the lives of all of us. 

"The Gamblers" played on weekends through- 
out the fall. Then, in early February, "Becket" 
opened to the acclaim of everybody. The play 
was an ambitious production, far beyond the 
drawing room comidies which once characterized 
Naval Academy theatre. Brillant performances, 
astute directions, and tasteful staging charac- 
terized the play. 

For most organizations, three successful pro- 
ductions would be enough, but the Masqueraders 
came on with more. In April, "A Sleep of Pris- 
oners" was staged in the Chapel and during June 
Week "A Visit to a Small Planet" ran for a week. 
Each play was an all Masquerader production 
from tickets to advertising. 

Much of the credit for the "new" Masque- 
raders must go to Major Albans, the group ad- 
visor. His enthusiasm for new ideas and willing- 
ness to commit himself to them have removed 
the upper bound from the organization's imagi- 
nation. Officers like Greg Quillinan have turned 
imagination into production. Performers like 
Ron Hood have made productions artful perfor- 

Are all Masqueraders strange? Well, perhaps 
they are. They see the world a little differently 
than the rest of us. Does drama have a place in a

part of it presented on the stage— a little more

Over the last few years, the Brigade has under- 
gone a music explosion. Dance bands are every- 
where and a weekend doesn't pass without 
psychedelic sounds echoing in Smoke Hall. 

The first among greats are the Spiffies. As 
senior member of the music set, the group not 
only plays at Academy dances but also at local 
girls' schools. This year, as in the past, they set 
the Sheraton on fire at the post-Army informal. 

The JG's aren't exactly small time. Motown 
soul is their specialty and they reach almost 
everybody. At the Army Pep Rally in November, 
the group had the whole Brigade foot-stompin'. 

The Admiralty and the Outriggers round out 
the Brigade music makers. Whether it's a Sunday 
stag hop or a Saturday night informal these 
bands have the latest vibrations. 

Annapolis may be steeped in the past but it 
has the sounds of today. Smoke Hall will never 
be the same.

Popular Music 
Concert Committee 

If you like popular music, you probably like 
the popular music concerts and so you must like 
the Popular Music Concert Committee. The 
sounds of music were at Annapolis in 68-69. Two 
concerts in the fall, Army-Navy Winter Sports 
weekend, a weekend in April, and June Week 
echoed with music ranging from the Lettermen 
to the Happenings. Annapolis was alive with 
music thanks to the Pop Music Committee.

Naval Academy 
Sailing Squadron 

Most graduating ensigns will take their places 
aboard sophisticated surface units, nuclear 
powered submarines or supersonic aircraft. There 
will still be the man, however, who prefers wind 
and sail when he puts to sea. The Naval Academy 
Sailing Squadron consists of this type of man. 
Men without good boats wouldn't sail very far or 
win many races; and the NASS has good boats. 
With its fleet of twelve Luders yawls, three ocean 
racers, and smaller craft, it represents a formida- 
ble challenge in racing circles. The MacMillan and 
Kennedy Cups in the fall and spring are races 
against collegiate yawl teams using NASS Luders. 
The three ocean racers, Jubilee III, Maradea, and 
Severn Star have become respected names in the 
Bay and on the east coast from Bermuda to 
Newport. Whether they sail 73 foot yawls or 
nineteen foot Flying Dutchmen, the members of 
the NASS can relive the days of wooden ships 
and iron men. 


Scuba Club 

That 0500 splashing in the natatorium isn't 
the Loch Ness monster gone beserk, it's the 
Scuba Club. The snorkeled and flippered fanatics 
are hitting the water again. The club conducts 
classes, sponsors field trips and provides equip- 
nnent discounts for its members. Who knows?

MST initiated a series of banquets and presenta- 
tions by guest speakers. Most of us will spend the 
next few years, on, under, or over the ocean.

Trident Magazine 

Trident Magazine is the professional publica- 
tion of the Brigade. The magazine features not 
only military subjects, but also foreign affairs, 
literature, and history. This year's editor, John 
Deninger, has written a provocative series of 
editorials deadling with the Brigade's relation to 
the contemporary society. The Trident Magazine 
provides an outlet for articulate discussion of our 
job, our past, and our world.

Trident Calendar 

Remember that Dental Quarters appointment 
you missed because you didn't put it in your 
Trident Calendar. It serves you right, the calen- 
dar staff designed it so that won't happen. Each 
day, four thousand calendars record the watches 
we stand, the dates we have, and,sometimes,even 
the letters we receive. Each Christmas, several 
times that number of Midshipman's relatives and 
friends receive calendars. What would we give 
them without the Trident?

The Log 

The Log is the Brigade humor magazine, but 
it's a different kind of humor, it can really be 
understood only by us. It goes beyond jargon. 
Our frustrations, our hopes and our fears are all 
part of it. How can an outsider really appreciate 
a good "Dear John"? We can because we i<now it 
happens and we're afraid we might be next. 
When "Salty Sam" records the latest plebe 
blunder we laugh because it probably happened 
to us. And no matter how censored an article 
might be, if we don't like something or some- 
body, the intent gets through. This doesn't mean 
that The Log is meaningless to our families, 
friends and girls. It remains, however, our 
magazine. To understand it, you've got to be part 
of us. 


Reef Points 

Every time a plebe mutters about a "surly serf 
from old Serbia" he can thank the Reef Points 
staff for this contribution to his education. Reef 
Points provides background in Naval history and 
traditions which every plebe should know. 
"How's the cow?" Thirteen hundred plebes 
better have an answer and Reef Points is where 
they'll find it.

The "lucky bag" is Navy slang for a ship's lost

it. Our trials and triumphs, our loud and quiet 
moments are all recorded here. People make the 
Lucky Bag. Gary Goodmundson, "Rach", Jim 
Sandberg, and the section heads argue, cajole, 
and threaten each other until finally negatives 
become photographs and photographs and copy 
become pages in a book. Memories may be 
important to everybody or just a few people. The

Begin Year 

Navy opened its 1968 season behind Coach 
Bill Elias and Captain Mike Clark on a rough 
note, as the IMittany Lions of Penn State demon- 
strated that their pre-season ranking in the top 
ten was not an over estimation, crushing the Blue 
31-6. It was youngster quarterback Mike Mc- 
Nallen's first varsity encounter, and Penn State 
capitalized on his inexperience to nab five 
interceptions. Four Navy fumbles also aided their 
cause, as the Navy offense could not settle in the 
right groove. The defense was impressive, permit- 
ting only one sustained drive all day, but the 
Lions had too many scoring opportunities to be 
stopped as a result of Navy turnovers. On a 
bright note, Mike Clark's seven pass receptions 
enabled him to climb past Joe Bellino and Jim 
Stewart to sixth place on Navy's all time pass 
receiving list. 

Boston College was able to combine a rugged 
defensive effort with several long gainers on the 
ground and in the air to put the Navy Home- 
coming game in the loss column. Navy's hopes 
were high following Boston College's initial score 
as Mike McNallen marched the Blue into BC's 
territory for the knotting score with Tim 
Cocozza kicking the point after the touchdown. 
This was the last Navy score until late in the final 
period, when Jeri Balsly crashed across for his 
second touchdown of the afternoon. Boston 
College halfback Dave Bennett surprised the 
defense, scoring 3 touchdowns and grinding out 
156 yards in 17 carries. 

A field goal by Tim Cocozza gave Navy a 3-0 
first quarter lead, but the Wolverines of Michi- 
gan, led by George Hoey's 130 yards gained on 
two punt returns and two interceptions, roared 
back to capture the contest. The Navy offense 
displayed definite signs of improvement, as Mike

McNallen passed for 247 yards (including a 54 
yard strike to Karl Schwelm) of a 339 yard total 
output. But Navy was able to muster only a field 
goal out of three intrusions inside the Michigan 
15 yard line until late in the fourth quarter when 
Mike McNallen rifled a pass toSchweInn to score 
six points. 

A steadily improving Navy team fought the 
Cadets of Air Force touchdown for touchdown, 
but time ran out with the Midshipmen driving on 
the Air Force 40 yard line. The Zoomies posted a 
7-6 half time deficit, then utilized an intercep- 
tion and a 35 yard TD jaunt to pull ahead. A key 
fumble recovery by Jeff Krstich, a 60 yard effort 
by Mike Lettieri on a kickoff return, and a 42 
yard pass play with Bill Newton receiving put 
Navy back in the game, but Air Force ground out 
a time-consuming TD drive late in the game to 
provide the margin of victory. 

A come from behind effort led by halfback 
Dan Pike and capped by a 25 yard field goal by 
Tim Cocozza made the difference as Navy posted 
its first victory of the season over Pittsburgh. Jeri 
Balsly plunged for the initial score, but quarter- 

Their Struggle 

back Dave Havern passed the Panthers to subse- 
quent touchdowns to make the score 16-6 at the 
opening of the fourth quarter. The Navy defense 
tightened its grip and set the stage for an 80 yard 
TD drive culminated by a 13 yard scoring pitch 
to Tom Daley. Moments later. Navy gained 
possession of the ball for the last time after the 
defense forced a Pitt safety. I n an exciting ending, 
the defense blocked a Pitt field goal attempt 
from the 5 yard line with only seconds remaining 
to win the game. 

Virginia engineered the first Navy loss to the 
Cavaliers since 1909, a resounding 24-0 defeat, as 
they capitalized on two key pass interceptions 
and a ten yard punt to take control of the game 
in which the contestants were otherwise evenly 
matched. Most of Navy's 240 yards of total 
offense were wasted around midfield, and after 
falling behind, McNallen was forced to go to the 
air repeatedly but without success in a 25 mph 
wind to try to move the sluggish offense. 

The Irish of Notre Dame could only manage a 
10 point advantage over Navy at the close of the 
first half, but the last two quarters saw them

utilize their size and weight advantage to post a 
45-14 triumph. McNallen again took to the air 
almost exclusively against a monstrous Irish line, 
and Bill Newton hauled in 9 completions to play 
a key role in the two successful NavyTD drives. 
Dar, Pike capped the first with a 44 yard gallop 
to the end zone, and Mike Clark took two quick 
passes over the center for a TD and the 2 point 
conversion to end the second. Bob Gladieux led 
an Irish rushing attack which totaled 337 yards, 
and Hanratty, Seymour, and company performed 
in the usual Notre Dame fashion. 

Entering the game a two touchdown under- 
dog, the Big Blue came through with a coordi- 
nated effort that gave the Yellow Jackets of 
Georgia Tech a 35-15 sting. The defense was 
superb, and the Engineers were able to score only 
in the last moments of the game. The Navy

offense found the ground game profitable in the 
cold, damp weather, and Dan Pike cracked for 
141 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Navy 
rushers. McNallen slipped in for one of the five 
touchdowns, and flipped to Karl Schwelm for 
another. Mike Lettieri scored the last Navy 
touchdown of the day on an amazing 79 yard 
punt return. Tim Cocozza kicked five out of five 

Syracuse proved to be tough for the Big Blue 
as their defense checked every scoring attempt of 
Navy until late in the contest while they tallied 
at least a touchdown in each of the four periods. 


Army: A Chance 
to Redeem 


■ MM L\4f 

For the third consecutive year Navy entered 
the Arnny-Navy game in an underdog role; the 
Cadets 6-3 record a startling contrast to the Big 
Blue's 2-7 won lost mark. Despite this, and the 
predictions of the press "experts," the spirit of 
the Brigade was at a high point. The game was 
characteristic of Army-Navy clashes, in that 
neither team was able to dominate the game. 
Chuck Jarvis proved to be the big man for the 
Cadets with three touchdowns and 88 yards in 
21 carries, but Dan Pike led all rushers with 107 
yards gained in 29 carries, and one touchdown. 

Army scored twice near the end of the first 
period, but Navy whittled the lead to seven 
points when, after a fumble recovery by Mike 
Clark on the Cadets 33 yard line, Dan Pike 
capped a series of short gains, including a slashing 
21 yard run up the middle, with a score from the 
one yard line. Tim Cocozza converted. There was 
no more scoring until late in the third period, 
when Mike Lettieri forced cadet quarterback 
Steve Lindell to throw a hurried pass that Tom 
Laforce picked off and returned 36 yards for 
Navy's last touchdown of the game. Army was 
not to be denied, however, and substitute quar- 
terback Jim O'Toole, hit Joe Albano to produce 
a 62 yard gain and set up the winning touch-

Army Booters Tie 
Navy for Third Time 
in Four Years 

Under the leadership of Team Captain Dick 
Bartlett the 1968 Navy Soccer Team began the 
season with hopes of improving on their NCAA 
semi-final finish of the 1967 squad. The booters 
were quickly brought to the realization that this 
was going to be no easy task, as NYU beat Navy 
1-0 in the season's opener. Recovering from their 
disappointing start the team ripped off four 
straight wins, culminating in an impressive 3-1 
victory over the highly rated Penn State. Navy 
then suffered its second and last loss of the 
season. After a bruising first half with Maryland 
holding a 1-0 lead, Navy fought back to put the 
score at one apiece by the end of regulation play. 
In the over time that followed Maryland, who 
later became the NCAA co-champion, pulled out 
the contest 2-1. 

Hoping for a bid to the NCAA tournament. 
Navy won the next three games. The bid never 
came, and bitterly disappointed Coach Warner 
could only take token pleasure from the 7-0 
defeat handed to Georgetown by the vengeful 

The Army game was typical of the last four 
years of Army-Navy soccer competition. Taking 
a first quarter lead on a head shot by Glen Reid, 
Navy held the Black Knights scoreless until the 
final quarter when they scored on a free kick. In 
the two overtimes that followed, now almost a 
tradition, the game ended in a frustrating 1-1 tie. 

The season's close brought recognition to 
several members of the Navy squad. Ail-Ameri- 
can honors came to Casey Bahr and Dick Bartlett 
while the All-South team included Tamburini, 
Bahr, and Bartlett.

The 1968 season began on a very pronnising 
note. The breakaway running of Esmond Marks 
and Mike Morrel gave the varsity "lightweights" a 
decisive edge over Rutgers as Navy posted a 27-3 
victory in the opener. The following week, hard, 
steady rains halted the fast ground attack of the 
"mighty mites" as they splashed against Prince- 
ton to a 0-0 tie. The offense was slow in drying 
out from the week before but impressive defen- 
sive play, highlighted by Dave Lilly, Bob Cowin 
and Jack Lahren, held Pennsylvania to a 6-0 lead 
going into the fourth quarter. Staging a spirited 
comeback, Navy scored three touchdowns while 
Pennsylvania was unable to crack the defense as 
time ran out. Cornell startled the Navy team with 
their attempt to redeem the 7-0 loss of the 
previous season. Strong running by both teams 
could not break the tie and the game ended 7-7. 

The next week, the Little Blue traveled to 
West Point to challenge the previously unbeaten, 
unscored upon Cadet team. However, hopes were 
quickly dimmed as the halftime score was 1 7-0 in 
favor of Army. The passing of Steve Becker to 
ends Bob Conger and John Fedor provided an 
explosive second-half comeback attempt by 
Navy. A key interception by West Point halted 
the spirited offensive move and the game ended 
in favor of Army, 17-14. The following week- 
end Columbia was easily defeated by Navy, 21-0.

Cross Country: 
A Building Year 

The 1968 season was a period of rebuilding 
for the Navy Crosscountry Team. With only two 
returning lettermen— Dick Martin and Captain 
Steve Hanvey— new coach Al Canteilo was hope- 
ful for a successful season, though he did not 
underrate the stepped-up competition in the East 
and throughout the Nation. The young and 
inexperienced team displayed marked improve- 
ment as the season progressed, with youngsters 
Vernon Graham and Bill Long rapidly adjusting 
to the varsity distance. Yet, in spite of the pace 
setting of Steve Hanvey and Ross Dunham, the 
team was only able to post two victories, 
defeating N.Y.U. and Upsala. In the meet against 
Upsala, Ross Dunham marked the best time of 
the season, completing the course in 25 minutes 
and 43.9 seconds. 

In the Heptagonals and IC4A Championships 
Navy finished in the second division, one place 
behind Army in each meet. However, the stage 
was set for the highlight of the season. 

V - 

On the 23rd of November, the harriers met 
the Black Knights in a dual meet at West Point. 
Army was a great favorite with a 6-2 dual meet 
record, yet was unable to capture the event from 
the now-strong Navy team. With underclassmen 
Mike Frick, Jan Fladeboe and Skip Wilkeln giving 
impetus to the determined squad, the harriers 
upset the Cadets in the closest meet in the past 
eight years of the series, 26-29.

Navy cagers found the going a bit rougher 
throughout the rest of the season. The final mark 
of 7-14 fell short of the '67-'68 record of 9-11, 
but the season surprised many fans considering 
the heavy graduation from the class of '68. This 
year's four top scorers outdistanced the previous 
year's stars in total points as well as improving 
their own individual records. Captain John 
Tolmie and Chuck Provini were two '69er'swho 
shared the top spots with Segundo Scott Sempko 
and Youngster Jack Conrad. 

John Tolmie, captain of the '68-'69 ballclub 
wrapped up his career at Navy with a three-year 
record of 1239 points, 464 this season, to be the 
third Navy eager ever to have been top scorer for 
each of his three years of Varsity action.

Swimmers Complete Rugged Season 


Competing in the toughest dual meet league in 
the country. Navy's Swimming Team turned in a 
respectable 5-7 record. Many of the losses were 
by narrow margins, including a 57-56 heart- 
breaking loss to Harvard. The dual meet season 
ended on a sour note with a hard fought loss to 
Army. However, in the Eastern Collegiate 
Championships, Navy scored a major upset by 
finishing third, ahead of such swimming powers 
as Dartmouth, Harvard, and Army. 

Frank Gunkelman lowered the Academy 
backstroke record on several occasions as did 
newcomers Steve Cheney (The Beast) in both 
breaststroke events and the 1000 free and Dave 
Pearl (Fat Boy) in both butterfly events. Both 
the medley and freestyle relays broke Academy 
records, and the medley relay will return in tact 
next year. Other top performers this year were; 
Stu Powrie, Cap Parlier, Bo Rose, Bill Kemp 
(Chetah), John Gilchrist, and Gordy Jones. 

The graduation of Bill Poirier, Chris Johnson, 
Bob Rachor, Hugh Batten and Mike Swanson will 
leave some holes, but with eight returning 
lettermen and an undefeated plebe team waiting 
to step in. Coach Higgins should have an even 
stronger team next year.

Navy Grapplers 
EIWA Champs 

The 1969 Navy Wrestling Team was the team 
that grew up with Navy wrestling prominence in 
the East. In 1966 the Navy grapplers lost only 
one duel meet, and that was to a strong Maryland 
team that two Navy plebe teams wrestling in the 
Plebe Invitational Tournament later significantly 
outpointed to culminate a formidable freshmen 
wrestling record. During 1967 the wrestling team 
again lost only a single duel meet, this time to 
Lehigh University. The team placed second that 
year in the EIWA Tournament and ninth in the 
NCAA Tournament. Wrestling buffs across the 
country were beginning to talk about Navy. 1 968 
witnessed one of Navy's all-time great wrestling 
teams. The Navy team went undefeated in duel 
meets, brought home the first EIWA 
Championship since 1947, and went on to finish 
an impressive fifth place in the NCAA 
Tournament. 1969 brought Navy another 
undefeated season and a second Eastern 
Intercollegiate Championship with five individual 
title winners, a feat not accomplished by Navy 
since 1943. Navy sent its first potential NCAA 
championship team to BYU in Provo, Utah, to 
compete for national honors, but misfortune 
traveled with the team and the prize remains 
uncaptured for another Navy team to attain. 

The graduating seniors leave behind a great 
coach and a great team. To those who have had 
the opportunity to wrestle for Navy it is a great 
personal treasure to leave behind, but still a 
greater treasure they take with them in 
experience and in memory. We wish all the 
successive Navy teams even greater 
accomplishments and better times than we have 
And, BEAT ARMY . . . AGAIN' 


Indoor Track 

The indoor track team started the season way 
back in September. While the distance runners 
were working for the cross country team, the rest 
of the men hoping to represent Navy indoors was 
participating with the out-of-season track team. 
Concentration was on distance running. Distance 
for weight throwers, shot putters, pole vaulters 
and sprinters is particularly a tough diet, but 
they worked the 5 miles daily and it paid off 
during the early season. 

The team won its first meet December 14th 
scoring 65 points over NYU's 40 and Fordham's 
32. Outstanding performances for Navy came 
when Bob Tolhurst vaulted 15 feet for the first 
time in his career, Steve Potts opened with 59'7" 
in the 35 W.T. and Bob Atwell jumped 22% 
inches in the long jump. 

After the Christmas break the fireworks really 
got started. Maryland came to Annapolis 5 days 
after we got back. Navy had some outstanding 
efforts but fell before the Terps. The 18th of 
January the team settled down and went against 
Penn and got on the winning side again. Steve 
Hanvey won the mile, coming from far behind, in 
4:132 and Jan Fladeboe won the 2 mile in 

First Row (left to right): Coach Gerdes, Richard Walsh, Charles Carrol, Vernon Graham, George Dunham, Michael Frick, Robert Edmond,

Timothy Joyce, David Robertson. 


Penn State came to Navy the 28th. Navy again 
was Supreme winning 61.5 to 47.5. Steve Potts 
reached the magic barrier by throwing 60'3y2" in 
the 35 pound weight. Jim Bloom put the shot 
50'1iy2". iVlonty Felix ran a fast 2:10.9 in the 
1000 yard run and the Mile Relay of John 
Massie, OIlie Baucher, Don Miller and Reed Clark 
ran a good 3:20.2 for the IVTile Relay. 

The first away meet found Navy at the VMI 
relays at Lexington, Virginia. The mile relay ran 
second behind a g-eat Tennessee team. The 880 
yard relay of Jim Paddock, Bob Atwell, Reed 
Clark and John Massie ran third behind N.C. 
College and W&M. In the two mile relay Rich 
Walsh, Jack McNamee, Steve Hanvey and Monty 
Felix brought the baton home first with a time 
of 7:53.0. In the pole vault Bob Tolhurst 
finished 2nd vaulting 14'6". 

Against Manhattan Navy came thru with both 
Steve Potts and Dough Backes hitting over 60' in 
the weight throw. John North topped 6'4" in 
H.J. Tolhurst again at 15', the mile relay ran 
3:18.3 and the 2 mile relay ran 7:41.3. 

Against St. John's Steve Hanvey ran 4:1 0.8 for 
3rd. Monty Felix running his first 600 yard run 
winning in 1:11.3. Charlie Carroll ran 2nd in 
1000 at 2:12.4. Ross Dunham won the 2 miles in 
9:17.6. Again the Navy team won out. 

Traveling to Ithaca for the Heptagonal 
Championships Navy came home with 2 
champions. Bob Tolhurst in the pole vault and 
Monty Felix in the 600. These 2 winners helped 
Navy to a 4th place finish in the 10 school event. 

Navy came in second behind Army in their 
annual dual meet. Army was superb and won 

In the IC4A Championships Navy took a 
limited number of men but found Steve Potts 
throwing 60'6^4" for 2nd in the 35 and Bob 
Tolhurst vaulting 1 5'0" for 5th place. 

Representatives in the National Collegiate 
Championships at Detroit did well. Steve Potts 
again was 2nd in a major meet throwing his best 
of the season 60'9" and Doug Backes 5th in 56th 
GVi" . This second place finish rewarded indoor 
track captain Steve Potts with Ail-American 
Selection to the Indoor Track Team. 

The motto for the 68-69 indoor track team 
was "Pride." The team spirit, work and pride 
paid off with a winning season.

1969 was a .500 season for the Navy gymnasts 
as, once again, that all-important win over Army 
eluded Coach Rammacher's athletes. Senior 
captain Mike Milchanowski and Segundo Bob 
Mackey anchored the team as all-around 
competitors backed up by Steve Klotz. High 
points of the season included Firstie Gerry 
Gallagher's fourth place in floor exercises and 
Pete Haring's fifth on side horse at the Eastern 
Intercollegiate Gymnastics League's individual 

Following the 1969 season, Plebe coach Bill 
Savering moved up to take the reins from Coach 
Rammacher as Head Coach. The new coach has 
his work cut out for him in replacing his '69er's 
Milchanowski, Gallagher, Wanner, Eby, 
Eickenberry, Docton and Schaefer.

Brigade Boxing 

The name of the game is guts, self-sacrifice and 
the will-to-win. We call it Brigade Boxing. 

Out of the seven weight divisions ranging from 
127 pounds to heavies. Head Coach Emerson 
Smith had five of last year's champions among 
the ranks of returning boxers. Heading the list 
was Firstie Craig Gallaspie, three time winner of 
the light heavyweight crown and Spike Webb 
Award. Joining Craig were Ray Golez — 127#, 
Steve Newberger — ^45=, Craig Silverthrone — 
165= and footballer Tom Cleverdon — 

The team trained vigorously day in and day 
out for three months. Starting with the basic 
fundamentals and advancing through the more 
complex phases of the game. Coach Smith 
prepared the 75 men, representing all four classes 
for the final eliminations and the right to go to 
the semi-finals. The semi-finals was a night of 
upsets; heavily favored Craig Gillaspie was 
dethroned by Tom Flaherty; Randy Larkin was 
eliminated by Bruce Bancroft, and Plebe Earl 
Smith handled a favorite in Mike Compton. 

The finals seemed to have been a toss up in 
every match. Golez, Newberger, Silverthorne and 
Cleverdon, managed to retain their titles. Others 
winning were Corky Pick — 155#and two Plebes 
Earl Smith — 135#and Ken Schaub — 175#. 

Coach Smith is looking forward to the 69-70 
boxing season as 6 of the 7 champions will be 



Season 8-4-0 


















Franklin & Marsha 





















The 68-69 squash season proved to be a year 
of many close misses for the team. With 
consistent wins from Bob Cowin, Charlie Wood, 
and Greg Stiles, the team finished with an 8-4 
record. In the Nationals, Navy's five man team 
beat Mexico 5-0 before losing to Ontario 4-1. 
The Army match proved to be the biggest 
disappointment for the team when it lost 4-5. 
The highlight of the season came in the 
Intercollegiates, where one of Navy's greatest 
athletes. Bob Cowin, placed third, thus gaining 
All-American honors. Bob was the stalwart of the 
team, finishing at the number one position with a 
10-2 record. After the experienced gained from 
this year. Coach Potter is looking towards next 
year for a victory over Army. With veterans. Bob 
Custer, Greg Stiles, Charlie Wood, Stu 
McFarland, and Harold Mashburn returning, the 
team should have a good year.

Coach Ed Trotter, in his third year as varsity 
coach, had his second National Championship 
in three years. The final results are not yet 
compiled but with two new National Collegiate 
records in both conventional and international 
type shooting, the Navy team looks like the 
winner. The whole season was a build-up to two 
real climaxes, the first being a long awaited win 
over a dangerous Army team that as usual outdid 
themselves but not well enough. It was the first 
Navy victory in five years. Bill Stockho managed 
to take the Army range record that day with a 
291. One week later, the spirits still high from 
the win over Army, the team swept through the 
National Sectionals taking everything in sight. 
With a completed season record of 8-1, the little 
publicized Navy Rifle team remains higher in the 
win column that almost all the other sports at 
Navy. The outstanding contributors to this year's 
team, which had more depth than any in a long 
time, included Bill Stockho, Tom Wilkes, Gary 
Marvin, Frank Stenstrom, Steve Hudock, Ralph 
Burnette, Bob Fender, Lonnie Emch, Cat Ballew 
and Gabe Hernandez. Next year there will be five 
less 69'ers, but a good plebe team, with enough 
potential to erase the loss of this year's first class, 
should keep the records at Navy for a few years 
to come.

After a disappointing 5-4 season last year, the 
68-69 pistol team came close to an undefeated 
season with an 8-1 record. Navy's only loss came 
at the hands of a very strong Army team which 
they had already beaten in the National Sectional 
matches. Aside from the Army match, Navy's 
only close contest was a 23 point victory over 
MIT. Victory margins in other matches were 
measured in hundreds of points. 

Leading shooters on the squad were Captain 
Nat Pace, Hugh O'Neill and Mike Malone, first 
class; Tom Noonan and Carl Smith, second class; 
and youngsters Bob Mayes and Ron DeLoof. 
O'Neill, Pace, Noonan and Mayes all recorded 
first place finishes during the season. 

The Navy team did well in the National 
Rankings. During the National Sectional Matches

held in February the Navy team fired the third 
highest score in the nation and were so ranked. 
The pistolmen also succeeded in having several 
nnembers of the team named to Ail-American 
berths. Bob Mayes made first team Ail-American 
while Hugh O'Neill, Nat Pace, and Tom Noonan 
were selected for the second team. Those 
members of the Class of 1969 on the pistol team 
finished out their shooting careers at Navy with 
only five losses in four years of competition. 

Lieutenant Art Sievers, Coach of the team for 
the past four years, will be retiring at the end of 
the season. His expert coaching enabled the 
midshipmen to win a majority of their matches 
while his affable personality made the "Sea 
Daddy" many instant friends and endeared him 
to his shooters and associates.

Barely falling short of an undefeated season 
by a 15-12 loss to Pennsylvania, Navy's fencing 
in 1969 left little to be desired. One of the 
mainstays of an overall successful winter sports 
season for the Blue &Gold, our fencers scored an 
impressive victory over the long-absent Black 
Knights to further enhance their sparkling rec- 

In addition to the Intercollegiate Fencing As- 
sociation team title and a 4th place in NCAA 
team standings. Academy fencers gathered their 
fair share of individual honors. Bert Freeman was 
named to the First Team All-America list as 
Captain Jim Davidson made the Second Team. 
Davidson was also named Individual Epee Champ 
and received the G. L. Cointe Sportsmanship 
award at the Easterns. The NCAA Champion- 
ships saw the Senior Captain honored as Fencer 
of the Year (College Epee). 

Coach Andre Deladrier wound up his 12th 
season heading the Midshipmen with an overall 
record of 69 wins to 29 losses. 1969's underclass 
strength gives him a lot to look forward to de- 
spite the loss of some outstanding First Class. 



Spring Coaches 



Navy's outdoor track team found success hard 
to come by in 1969. The Midshipmen dropped 
all five of their dual meets although they came 
close in a 79-75 loss to St. John's and an 80-74 
setback to William & Mary. 

One outdoor record fell by the wayside. Sec- 
ond classman Bob Kirk was the man responsible 
with his pitch of 237 feet, 3 inches, in the javelin 
vs. William & Mary. That effort shattered the old 
standard of 235' iy2" by Dave Finch in 1967.

Brushed off as an also-ran in the pre-season 
speculation, Navy's 1969 lacrosse teann startled 
the stick world by making a spirited run for the 
National crown, an ambition thwarted only by 
the Midshipmen's 14-4 loss to Army in the finale 
at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. 

Even that setback, however, could not 
completely dull the luster of Navy's 1969 la- 
crosse season. The most satisfying of the ten 
victories was certainly a 9-6 upset of defending 
National titlist Johns Hopkins on the Jays' home 
field. Hopkins was sailing easily toward a repeat 
championship and had things completely its own 
way in the first eight games of the season. Before 
a Homecoming throng that overflowed Home- 
wood Field, the Midshipmen swarmed all over 
the heavily-favored Jays. Defenseman John Pad- 
gett completely throttled Hopkins' three-time 
All-America Joe Cowan and midfielder Harry 
MacLaughlin registered four goals to trigger the 
Navy victory. 

Both Padgett and MacLaughlin were first team 
All-America picks on the post-season listing of 
the college game's best while goalie Len Supko 
and midfielder Chris Everett made the third team 
with Denny Yatras and Ed Tempesta attracting 
Honorable Mention. 

Captain Yatras was the scoring leader for 
Navy's balanced attack with 14 goals and 15 
assists for 29 points. MacLaughlin led the Mid- 
shipmen in goals with 25 and added three assists 
for 28 points. Rounding out the top five were: 


Tom Caouette, 24 points (19 goals/5 assists); 
Ron Sadler, 22 points (8 goals/14 assists), and 
Tom Herbert, 17 points (7 goals/10 assists). 

The defense of Padgett, Bo Scharnus, and 
Greg Murphy combined with goalie Supko to 
hold the opposition to a paltry average of five 
goals per game. Supko was brilliant in the nets, 
turning aside 1 09 enemy shots.

The heavy hitting of Denny Losh and Scott 
Semko and the pitching of youngster Pat 
Fletcher enabled the Navy baseball team to finish 
with a winning season. Despite a rather disap- 
pointing 2-4-1 showing in the Eastern League, 
the Midshipmen wound up 10-9-1 overall and 
could have been considerably better but for four 
one-run losses. 

Losh, a second classman from Lorain, Ohio, 
became the first regular to hit .400 since Bob 
Dougal in 1963. Losh pounded out 17 hits in 41 
trips for a final average of .415. He also provided 
one of the season's most dramatic moments by 
driving a George Washington offering over the 
right field screen with two mates aboard in the 
twelfth inning to beat the Colonials, 8-5. 

Coach Joe Duff's club got its power from 
Semko, who numbered 12 extra base hits among 
his 22 safe blows. The Whippany, N. J., slugger 
had tvyo doubles, six triples, and four homers. He 
paced the Midshipmen in runs-batted-in with 17. 
Semko's triple total was good enough to rank 
him second nationally according to N.C.A.A. sta- 
tistics. In the finale against Army, Semko hit for 
the circuit with a single, double, triple, and home 
run. On the triple, he was thrown out at the plate 
on a disputed decision and a ground rule pre- 
vented the double from being still another 

In addition to Losh in left and Semko at first, 
the rest of the regular lineup featured Tony 
Fortino (.158) at second, Dan Johnson (.212) at 
short, Mike Worley (.272) at third, Dave Proffitt

"The Navy being the Navy, it seems only

it does!" The Academy Sailing Squadron again 
had an exceptional year in all categories of ocean 
and circuit racing. 





Navy's 1969 tennis team got the best start of 
any net aggregation since 1945 by reeling off 
nine straight victories to open the campaign. A 
late season slump cost the Midshipmen six deci- 
sions in the final eight outings but the overall 
record of 11-6 was still the finest won-lost mark 
since 1964. 

Top man for Coach Harvey Muller was Cap- 
tain Bob Cowin, the number one singles entry 
and one of the ranking players in the East. 
Cowin, an All-America in squash and a regular 
for the 150-pound football team, was selected to 
receive the N.A.A.A. Sword as the man in the 
graduating class considered to have "personally 
excelled in athletics during his years of varsity 

In singles, the combative Cowin put together a

four and five respectively, finished behind Cowin 
with identical records of 11-6. They were fol- 
lowed by Dawson and John Bunker, both at 
10-7, and Clay Stiles, who won nine of 16 

The biggest victory of the year was Navy's 6-3 
triumph over Yale, only the second ever over the 
Eli in a series that dates to 1920. Yale carried a 
string of 23 straight at Navy's expense into that 
May 2nd meeting on the varsity courts. The 
Midshipmen took the first five singles matches, 
two of them in straight sets, to make it look easy 
vs. the Eli.

Crewing for the 
Blue and Gold 

The hopes that new head coach Carl Ullrich 
brought were slow in reviving Navy from last 
year's slunnp. I n the early season, the varsity boat 
recorded losses to Princeton, Yale, and Penn and 
Harvard, beating only Syracuse in a second place 
finish to Cornell in the Goes Cup regatta. The 
JV's breezed through their schedule, winning 
every start, while the Plebes matched the varsity 
record. The only bright spot was winning the 
Norman G. Stagg trophy for overall finishes 
against Cornell and Syracuse. 

For the Eastern Sprints, the JV's were moved 
up to the Varsity spot, and placed 9th overall 
after losing a photo finish to gain the finals. The 
JV finished third overall, and the plebes, 

Before the IRA's, Navy suffered an ominous 
loss to Wisconsin in all three races, but came 
back to qualify all three teams in the finals of the 
IRA regatta. Race day saw Navy run out of 
steam, as the Varsity, JV, and Plebes finished 
6th, 5th, and 6th, respectively. Only the great 
improvement over last year and the promise of 
an upswing next year detracted from the disap- 
pointing conclusion of the '69 season.

It's been a long, L-O-N-G, time and no one can say it's been all fun 
and games. We all have had a hell of a lot of disappointments, but now 
isn't it strange how few any of us remember? Memories, the good 
ones, all the escapades, reg or not — we've had our share. There were 
those first two years with "K" 25's "Pineapple" and two more with 
the "Game Warden" — each period an experience in itself (Ham- 
burgers and double takes — what a combo!) Two years of colors in a 
row (and with all our "class unity") amazing, simply amazing! We had 
our stars — 9 at once . . . once. (Yeh, we had our moons too.) 
Twenty-five guys from almost everywhere — 5 grunts, 7 zoomies, 9 
seadogs, 3 nukes ... 8 "N's" (5 of 'em black) and 8 June hubs. Each 
one now gone his way, glad to have done it, but even gladder to have 
it done.

Jer came to Navy from the University of Arizona where he was 
a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity. Jer enjoyed the good life 
and tried his best to mai<e his four years the best possible. He was 
never one to turn down a party in or out of the Hall. Staying out 
of trouble with the Executive Department became an art with 
him. Jer knew how to play hard and work hard. Attending Culver 
Military Academy before college gave him an insight into the 
requirements of military life. Being a natural athlete, he was able 
to make intramural sports successful. With Jer's gifted personality 
and willingness to work, he will be a great credit to the Naval 


"I had it a minute ago" Bob was the one man most responsible 
for bringing an academic (?) atmosphere to the training tables. He 
earned recognition early as the company genius, star third base- 
man, library regular, number one subsidizer of the company 
doughnut mess, and as the only man in the company who never 
learned how to make his pad. He had a tremendous enthusiasm for 
everything he did, and spread this same interest among his class- 
mates, so much so that "Arnie's Army" became the biggest 
rooting section at the Navy baseball games. Bob's perseverance, 
hard work, friendly nature, and dissatisfaction for anything less 
than excellence will insure him of success in what ever career he 


B. J. never let the fact that he was of Irish ancestry impede him 
in becoming one of the outstanding members of the class. He 
established himself early as one of the best-liked and most re- 
spected men in the company, and as the front-runner in the class 
sleeping contest, a position which he never relinquished. He had a 
friendly personality and academic aversion which always made his 
room a pleasant stop during study hour. B. J.'s good nature, 
all-around competence, and take-charge personality helped make 
him the company "high striper." His ability, determination, quick 
wit, and friendly smile will insure his success in his career in the 
Navy as well as in other future endeavors. 


A native of Troy, New York, "Jeb", as he is known to those of 
us who know him well, entered the Academy with a professional 
interest and the desire to become, of all things, a Naval Officer. 
Plebe Year found Jeb doing numerous interesting projects design- 
ed to make his 'freshman' year exciting. Among these interests 
were sailing, jewelry design, and new methods of 'calling chow.' 
Despite his early desire to get things done in a hurry, Jeb settled 
down quite solidly in his upperclass years. Even though he ex- 
celled in the technical subjects known affectionately as 'Bull', 
Jeb's deep professional interest will surely mold him into a very 
dedicated, and successful Naval Officer. 


Dwight came to the Academy from Seattle, Washington or 
what he humbly referred to as "God's country." Known to those 
around him as "Boomer," Dwight maintained his sense of humor 
while tackling the rigors of Academy life. He was one of those rare 
ones who somehow managed to keep his grades up and still have a 
good time on weekends. Dwight spent several years working with 
Reef Points. In his leisure time you could find Dwight racing down 
some frozen slopes, strumming his banjo, or just dreaming about 
his two favorites, girls and sports cars. Dwight's active interest in 
the Navy, combined with his fine personal qualities, are sure to 
enhance whichever branch of the service he chooses to enter. 


"Old Man" George was the company's contribution to the 
swimming team, antiphonal choir, scuba club, and Academy 
chapter of the Golden Ager's. Though sometimes known for a 
scholastic disinclination, he always managed to stay at least a step 
ahead of the academic department. George was one of the most 
thoroughly enjoyable persons in the class. He had an easy going 
attitude, effervescent personality, and a tremendous amount of 
competence, all of which helped make him one of the best liked 
and most able men in the company. His cheery laugh will long 
echo in the halls of Mother "B" and in the memories of his 



Bill came to Navy from Toledo, Ohio by way of Ohio State 
where he spent a year before he became a plebe. Bill was always 
known for his quest of the good deal and this is perhaps what led 
him to the Management Department where he spent many happy 
hours learning to do what he likes best. His strong interest in his 
studies and his career undoubtedly explains his excellence in 
academics and professional knowledge. Bill was a member of the 
Catholic Choir as well as being very athletic, with participation in 
plebe and J.V. crew teams, basketball and gymnastics. Bill's 
constant search for professional excellence and proficiency suggest 
the qualities which will certainly make him a fine officer. 


A native Floridian, Terry came from Coral Gables High School 
where he was an all-around athlete. "Cotton" seemed to fit well 
into "Boat School" life and after a couple of tries at 150# 
football, he found his home in the weight room where he avidly 
participates in Batt weightlifting. Never one to worry about 
academics, this blonde beach boy would rather spend his time on 
the beach than anywhere else. His confident and easy-going nature 
prompted him to push the proverbial "coast button" after two 
years of academic excellence. Quite a friendly guy with the 
Florida sun-power behind him, Terry will assure himself success in 
what ever branch of the Navy he chooses to follow. 


Jimmy arrived on the banks of the Severn with valedictory 
credentials, a study body and three class presidencies, and a 
multitude of other honors. Sailing through as a frosh, practically 
unscathed, "The Gasser" became well known as the plebe with the 
concave chin. Working diligently at every task, Jimbo attained the 
Superintendent's List regularly, finally pinning on stars second 
class year. Those in search, classmates needing the gouge or young 
chargers with problem shoes, knew Jim's helping hand well. Gasser 
worked as hard on the athletic field, whether managing the 150's, 
hitting with the company lightweights, or rapping out softballs. 
Jim goes to the fleet ready to serve, and they'll both be better for 
his being there. 


Mike came to Navy, born on the crest of a wave and rocked in 
the cradle of the deep, a navy junior having lived all over the 
country. It must have been his broad background that gave him his 
remarkable insight into nearly every problem he ever encountered. 
Never one to step back, the vanquished, from any battle with the 
academic departments, Mike put on his stars once and never took 
them off (except for the press shop). Hardly one to limit himself, 
Mike applied himself as enthusiastically in a number of company 
sports, particularly basketball. Being professionally oriented, Mike 
will no doubt take to the fleet the mature confidence and deter- 
mination to excel that characterized his every move at USNA. 



Mike came to the quiet shores of the Severn from a gay and 
carefree life in sunny Oakland, California. When not energizing 
himself in the blue trampoline he could be found at the rifle range 
where, due to his fine marksmanship, he earned the title of "Jim 
Bowie." Nothing seemed to deter him from searching every week- 
end for "the most beautiful girl I've ever seen." His musical talent 
and military attitude made "the chief" a striper in the Drum and 
Bugle Corps. "Old man Harter," a lover of good food, brought his 
room fame as the Howard Johnson's of the first company. He will 
be remembered for his easy going personality and good humor, 
and be welcome in any branch of the service he chooses. 


Mike left Sterling, Illinois, to come to the Academy, but Mike's 
Midwestern personality and down to earth sense of humor, stayed 
with him in spite of the rigors of his first year. Known by many 
names in Bancroft, Mike was best known as "the Heids." He 
displayed a knack at being a great organizer and it always seemed 
Mike had many irons in the fire. Of all his talents, Mike's ability to 
handle money, at least his ability to never spend it became his 
trademark at the Academy. Aero was his favorite academic pas- 
time, but more than studies, Mike was professionally motivated. 
There is no doubt this motivation will show in his career. 


Originally from Los Angeles, but claiming allegiance to Shreve- 
port, Louisiana, "Hutch" came to U.S.IM.A. after a year of prep 
school at Millard. J. R. as he came to be known, was a firm 
believer in the maxim of "use your time to the utmost," therefore 
he could always be found sleeping, throwing a football or just 
plain "messing around." He will always be remembered for his 
Segundo year Army game antics which turned out to be more 
interesting than the game. Never a slouch at academics, J. R. 
always got the maximum out of grades with a minimum of study. 
What ever part of the Naval Service he enters, J. R. will be an 
inspiration to both the men he serves with and those he com- 


Add came to Navy from Ashland, Virginia following one happy 
year at Randolph Macon Men's College where he had been a 
member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity. The switch to a military life 
didn't diminish the sparkling personality which Add continually 
used to brighten the spirits of others. Plebe year uncovered a 
dynamic quality which made Add a leader in all he attempted. A 
"Southern Gentleman" to the finest degree. Add was renowned 
for his reputation with the fair sex. No stranger to effort and 
determination. Add succeeded as a letterman at defensive end on 
the varsity 1 50 pound football team. Add's presence in any branch 
of the service will prove valuable and exciting for those with 
whom he serves. 


Bob came to the "Big A" from Poughkeepsie, New York with a 
swimming ability which was to rival Tarzan's. Though not a 
swimmer, R. G. was a natural runner, setting a plebe track record 
which was to stand until his second class year. Known for his 
pleasant personality and easy going manner Bob quite naturally 
accrued numerous nickmanes. The most prevalent being "Bullet," 
and "R. G.". Sunday afternoons, without fail, when an upperclass 
(or underclass) dance was in progress Bob would avail himself of 
the opportunity to enjoy a midshipman's favorite pastime. How- 
ever, Sunday night would find R. G. "in love" again. With his 
academic abilities and pleasant personality, R. G. will undoubtedly 
find no limits to his future as a naval officer. 


Bill, alias "The Augustus," better known as "Killer" will al- 
ways remain in the hearts and minds of his classmates. More than 
anyone else at the Naval Academy he displayed qualities of tem- 
perament and courage which have earned for him the respect of 
his associates, almost to the man. Only his concerted and untiring 
effort brought him to the top of his class academically. Chairman 
of the Hop Committee, Bill's competence in protocol and social 
graces grew and became known throughout the Academy. As 
active as Bill has been, he has certainly proved himself much more 
than a pretty face. Of all his classmates Bill will certainly be one of 
the most difficult to forget. 




Louie, as he is generally known, came to the Academy after 
attending Marion Military Institute and serving in the Naval Re- 
serve. From the first he was a fiery, enthusiastic "Destroyerman" 
taking charge in what ever sport he participated. La Roy was 
particularly adept at basketball, just earning the nickname "Gun- 
ner." Academics presented little trouble but were definitely not 
high on his list of priorities. On many occasions Louie could be 
found pursuing his favorite pastime, buried beneath his 'Blue and 
Gold' blanket. His ability to mix fun and hard work while achiev- 
ing outstanding results will take Louie as far as he wishes to go in 


Steve came to us from Olympia, Washington, after a varied and 
exciting life on the West Coast. Throughout his four years here, 
Steve has left his mark in many places. As a prominent member of 
the Drum and Bugle Corps, he was to prove his musical skills many 
times over. Springtime would find Steve either on the golf course 
or in the pad. Though he never made Supt's List, Steve was easily 
the best read man in the company, with his book collection the 
envy of all. Always remembered for his easy going personality and 
his ready wit, Steve is planning a career in Naval Aviation. He is 
sure to be tops. 


From the Steel City, Pittsburgh, came Danny Long. Starting 
off Plebe Year, Dan immediately amassed a phenomenal number 
of demos as well as the admiration of every one of his classmates. 
His determination and smiling countenance made him a welcome 
member of any crowd. It could never be said that Danny didn't 
have at least one good joke in the right place at the right time. As 
a member of the batt cross country and weightlifting teams, 
Danny exhibited his athletic prowess and once more his determi- 
nation and will to win. Bound to put to good use his airborne and 
other professional training, Dan should have no trouble chipping 
out his niche in the halls of Naval Service fame. 


Hailing from Terre Haute, Indiana, Guy's only goal was to 
know all that was worth knowing, especially about the stock 
market, the ponies, and even the Navy. After running Plebe and 
Varsity track for two years, he rendered his valuable services to 
the Batt crew and Company fieldball team. The Canary's second 
home at Navy was Luce Hall, where he worked on an Ops Analysis 
major. Guy would have worn stars more often if academics had 
the glamorous appeal of other schemes like his trip to Europe. 
However, his name appeared frequently on the Dean's and Supt's 
Lists. Above all Guy possessed a great deal of professional know- 
ledge and was anxious to get out to the real Navy. 



Arriving on the banana boat from Chile in 1965, Parakeet 
brought with him many years of military experience derived from 
plebe years spent at both the Chilean Naval and Air Force Acad- 
emies. His professional attitude became readily apparent to both 
his classmates and the upperclass, and he distinguished himself 
even as a plebe. 'The Spic', as he was fondly called, picked up the 
English language almost as easily as he learned how to throw a 
football. It was always great fun to toss a beer can at him at a 
party and watch how he would instinctively jump up and catch it 
with his feet. Carlos' easy going, Latin humor will make him 
welcome in any wardroom of our Navy. 


Chuck comes to the Academy, surviving the perils that come 
from living in Brooklyn, New York. The experience gained from 
attending Brooklyn Tech High School has helped him in his 
"futile" attempt for scholastic excellence. On weekends you can 
usually find him either dragging a young lady or catching up on 
the sleep he missed the week before. Even with his tough schedule 
he still found time to become the editor of Reef Points, and an 
active member in the Scuba Club. Chuck distinguishes himself 
among his classmates as a man with a pleasant smile and a warm 
hello for everyone he knows. No matter which branch of the 
service he chooses. Chuck is sure to be an asset to the Naval 


C. F. came to the Naval Academy from Bradenton, Florida 
with a soft spot in his heart for Fords, 'Gators, and a nurse. 
Although his loves remained intact, under the capable leadership 
. of the flaw his talents were rechanneled somewhat. Through it all, 
:' the Bull retained a sense of humor which offered many of us our 
lightest moments. C. F.'s competency and pride in a job well done 
made him an easy winner in all his endeavors, although he enjoyed 
his brightest hours of glory in the academic halls and on the 
athletic field. C. F. has chosen a career in Navy line where he will 
undoubtedly be a valuable asset and a representative of which the 
Class of 69 will be extremely proud. 


Dunbar, in the rolling hills of West Virginia, is Don's home- 
town. Although he came to Navy right out of high school, Don 
had no trouble with academics. His favorite department was 
Engineering and his interest and studiousness made him no strang- 
er to the Dean's and Supt's Lists. Known far and near as "The 
Marauder", Don played about all of the company sports. He was 
our company representative for two years and was noted for his 
firm opinion of any issue presented. Don was a staunch believer 
in the military system and possessed a true professional attitude. 
As a midshipman Don was always looking forward to his days 
in the Fleet and will undoubtedly make a fine officer. 


Larry, more well known as L. W., or just plain Lar, or various 
other colorful names, hails from the fair state of Florida. Larry did 
his best to acquire a Physics Major on validation day of his Plebe 
Summer, and was much dismayed when told that he would have 
to take a couple of courses to complete it. Lar worked hard Plebe 
Year, and built an academic foundation upon which, one short 
year later, he vaulted to academic excellence. Lar, never one to 
sweat the system, nonetheless, did a good job in all that he 
attempted. The Navy is going to receive a very intelligent and 
dedicated officer when Larry enters into his field of endeavor, 
upon graduation. 


Mike entered the "Hallowed Halls of Mother B" by a lot of 
hard work and the graciousness of the Secretary of the Navy. 
Hailing from Lincoln, Nebraska, this Napster brought with him a 
tenacity and dedication for the service which was admired by his 
classmates. After a slow start with academics, the "old man" 
finally got back into the groove and his name was often found 
among those on the "list." An active member of the plebe and 
varsity track teams, Mike could usually be found afternoons 
climbing his pole. His desire and dedication will continue to serve 
him in good stead— what ever branch of the Navy is blessed with 

his talents.

The second company, known afar for producing "the best damn 
officers in the Fleet," has finished yet another year in a characteristic 
blaze of glory. The men of the second company, in their never ending 
search for truth, justice, and the American way, have garnered another 
year with professional, academic and philanthropic laurels. No strang- 
ers to the accolades of the Academic Board, this year's efforts have 
been crowned by the two company commanders, with their Strident 
Scholar project on the isolation of the mysterious Cathode Phamtom- 
Ray. Neither has the company shied from the challenge of the playing 
field, where undisputed championship has been gained in fraternity 
football. No small credit in these achievements is encumbent to the 
three underclasses, who took immediately to the aura of the "Fighting 
Second." A well done is extended for another fine year.

The Motrlce came hurtling out of the coal dust of Western 
Pennsylvania to the Boat school with a gleam in his eye and 
conquest on his mind. Even now, innumerable laundry bags and a 
few cruise boxes later, his basic determination still remains. His 
unending full-scale warfare with the Academic Departments and 
Executive Department have amazed all of us. Considering the 
extent to which he devoted his time to studies, it is remarkable 
that he could lend his talents to his battalion's crew, squash and 
weightlifting teams. Whether the future will find Rick looping 
through the air with Navy wings remains to be seen, but wherever 
it finds him, it will find an outstanding officer — and an even 
better man. 


This man is a Texan! And he won't ever let you forget it. Dick 
came charging into Annapolis with self-confidence and attacked 
Plebe Year with something more than enthusiasm. Youngster 
Year, he decided to lend his electronics talents to the Brigade 
radio station, spending so much time there that he became known 
as the Phantom. But, if we didn't see him, we heard him. 
Everyday, the "Long Tall Texan" entertained the Brigade spinning 
records and maintaining the O.D. watch. When not playing DJ, 
Dick usually fell victim to the pad. Being no great academic slash 
himself, Campbell spent his study hours in classmates' rooms 
lowering the curve. Dick's likeable personality is sure to carry him 
far in the service. 


If you're looking for information on literature, playing the 
guitar, speaking French, or Johnny Rivers' albums — try John. In 
spite of his lack of communication with the Academic Depart- 
ments, in these areas, he has proven himself a veritable expert. 
Often derided for his youthful appearance, "Boy Midshipman" is 
always the one who thinks things out, while the rest of us plunge 
right into hot water. His cross country summer trips have taken 
him many a mile in "Aussie-hat" and jeans. Careful consideration 
and deliberation are John's forte, and you can be sure that he'll do 
a good job in any area. We're sure to hear more from John Clark. 


Starting out in a bad way, Ron spent his plebe year in the 
hospital due to a severe attack of arthritis. After finding that a 
medical discharge was not coming his way, the "Frog" hopped his 
way into everyone's heart with his ever-present smile and quiet 
personality. It was Ron who provided Army game and June Week 
transportation with his highly decorated red panel truck. Although 
completely inexperienced, he worked his way to the top of both 
the varsity gymnastics team and the varsity restriction squad in a 
single year as a second classman, and if he can just behave himself, 
he is sure to succeed in whatever he attempts. 


Coming to the trade school from Bardstown, Kentucky, "the 
Colonel" brought with him a drawl that was heard quite often 
plebe summer. Especially to the tune of "One, suhl Two, suh! 
Three, suh! . . ." His sense of humor and dramatic talents brought 
him immediately to the attention of the upperclass and thus were 
born the immortal lines of "Ma'am, permit me to introduce 
myself ..." In addition to his verbal exercising, Dick could also be 
found on the playing field. His attendance at company football, 
soccer and Softball was excelled only by his almost perfect 
attendance at 7T-ball. If his performance as a midshipman is 
indicative of his career then the Navy will be gaining a valuable 



Hailing from Chevy Chase, Maryland, Carl can be found most 
any night planning some new sailing maneuver, learning practical 
applications of Math magic, and pondering over a check-mate in 
nine, against some wary opponent. Able to accomplish the 
seemingly impossible, Carl finishes off four years with a Math 
major, Italian minor, and devoted service to many extracurricular 
activities. Sailing is his sport and marching is his downfall, so every 
spring and fall Carl can be seen sailing the backdrop to many a 
Parade. SSBN's are his life's dream, but only time will determine 
his fate. Carl's quick wit and constant drive to better his education 
and finish the job will surely be an asset to the Fleet when he 

Escaping from the clutches of the Hell's Angels in the Oakland 
surburb of Hayward, California. Don came to the Naval Academy 
with wings on his feet. He put this talent to good use by 
outrunning opponents for the Batt cross country team, outrunning 
defenders as flankerback for the Company lightweight football 
team and outrunning the Academic Board at every semester's end. 
"Rock" quickly showed a large capacity for hard work by steadily 
improving his grades while completing an Operations Analysis 
minor. Rock constantly filled his room with sound by combining 
his wide taste in music with a flair for electronics. His capacity for 
hard work and his constant desire to excel will make him a success 
anywhere the Navy sends him. 


"All the world's a stage" and one of its bigger Starrs has got to 
be our man Gibs. From the metropolis of Wood River, Illinois, 
Hoot Interrupted his journey to the sea with a year of "study" at 
the University of Illinois. Once at Navy, our Hamlet distinguished 
himself before the spotlights of Mahan Hall, on the gridiron as the 
Big Blue manager and throughout his company during frequent 
study hour appearances as a man of wit and talent. Despite some 
critical reviews of his performances on the hallowed stages of 
Isherwood, Sampson and BIdg. 286 he has managed to avoid a 
command appearance before the green table. Graduation will 
undoubtedly see Bob as a man to be reckoned with. 


There haven't been many people who have met Gil who haven't 
counted him as a friend, and the horticulturist from the thriving 
metropolis of Gowen, Michigan, is a friend one can count on. His 
unusual study habits, or lack of them, kept his mailbox filled with 
correspondence from the Supt, but when a class or company 
project was undertaken, Gil was in on it, if indeed, he hadn't 
originated it. A man who believes in keeping them all happy, he 
seems several years from that long walk down the matrimonial 
aisle. Gil's popper livened many a Wardroom Saturday night and 
his even disposition often quelled a potential quarrel. Gil hopes to 
add flying Phantoms to his many talents. 


After being born and raised in a bayou in northern Louisiana, 
Ken gave up his log canoe to come to the Naval Academy and 
learn destroyers. He quickly made the transition from high school 
ROTC greens to Navy white works with a spirit and drive that 
carried him through his four years. Quick wit, ready humor and a 
tin grin were his trademarks. If anyone ever got through the Naval 
Academy on sheer desire it was Ken. "Hawks" spent most of his 
nights in the library, knee-deep in wirest books with NO DOZ 
keeping him awake. His determination kept him one step ahead of 
the Academic Board, and we know it will keep him way ahead in 
the Fleet. 


Coming to the Academy as a Navy junior, Eric adapted well to 
Navy life and found many friends, among whom we must include 
his two older brothers, who were also midshipmen. Snake was well 
known for his singing, harmonica blowing and guitar strumming 
ability, but he was also known in a much more favorable light for 
his knockabout sailing ability and his success as the ghost in 
Hamlet. Eric's greatest achievement, however, was his cartoon, 
"Barney Stubb," who worked his way into everyone's heart with 
his stupidity and bad luck and earned Eric the position of Art & 
Humor editor of the Log. With his enthusiasm and high com- 
petitive spirit, Eric is bound for a highly successful Naval Career. 



"Ike" came to Navy from Southern California, and has been 
trying to convince the Navy Department to move the Academy to 
the Golden State ever since. Chuck's "humble" personality has 
always made him an integral part of company affairs. He can be 
quoted as saying almost anything about anything. Chuck proved 
his loyalty to TT-ball, playing several games with a cast on his 
ankle. Placing studies above all else "Ike" was always available for 
a fourth hand for bridge. When not playing cards or TT-Ball, he 
could usually be found in the pad. All in all Chuck's sense of 
humor has always been a bright spot in company morale. We all 
know that he's sure to go far. 


If you've never heard of Youngstown, Ohio then you've never 
met "Kols." Youngstown, that magical land where men do seven 
giant swings on horizontal bars, and twenty thousand people 
attend high school basketball games, counts Dan as its most 
devoted denizen. An active back on the TT-ball team, Dan's 
aggressiveness on the field has been witnessed, and respected, by 
all who have played against him. Although he is extremely good 
natured, Dan is quick to take a stand against any situation or cause 
he believes to be wrong. Planning on a career in the Corps, Dan's 
personality, his strong sense of right and wrong, and his individ- 
ualism will make him a success in any career he chooses. 


Between the Y.P. Squadron, Scuba Club and an occasional 
Jewish holiday, "Liebs" has often been a hard person to find. His 
time in the hall, however, has been well spent. A hard worker, 
Steve quickly established himself as the company expert on the 
field of economics and the elusive art of passing navigation, tactics 
and Y.P. courses. He has often been one of the first to offer help 
on practically anything from a TT-project to a classmate's problems 
with homework, and a willingness to offer honest opinions has 
made him the moderating influence in more than one heated 
discussion. Steve's determination, ability and forthwright honesty 
are sure to make him a success in what ever field of endeavor he 


Always one of the quieter members, it was Jim, along with his 
roommate, who gave the n Its name while holding a bull session 
one night youngster year. Although his closest friends left the 
Academy before their times, Jim managed to keep abreast of the 
situation through his face-creasing smile and tall tales, making new 
friends as fast as he lost the old. Jim's two loves are basketball and 
motorcycles. The first claimed all of him every free afternoon, but 
the second merely claimed his right hand once during second 
class summer. Jim has always been the kind who gets away with 
anything he tries, so it can be safely said that he will go far in this

"It is by no means enough that an officer in the Navy be a 
capable mariner." When John Paul Jones spoke these words he 
must have foreseen such a man as Maurice. From the wrestling loft 
of Macdonough Hall to the basement of the brickskellar this man 
carved out a career that was an amazement to all who witnessed it. 
He was the type of man who would give you the coat off his back, 
even at an Army game march-on. A firm believer that too much 
formal education can stifle a man, Maurice sought an education in 
the finer things of life. A man of discriminating tastes, Maurice 
chose the Class of 69 as the beginning of a naval saga. 


"Organ" came to the Trade School straight out of high school 
in Hawaii. His driving ambition in the field of academics soon put 
him within range of the coveted anchor-man position, but by a 
slight miscalculation he found himself a proponent of the five year 
plan. Thus, after diligent study and hard work he has managed to 
cram four years of intense study into five. "Organ" also has the 
envious record of being the only man in the history of Navy to 
restrict two class "A's" in one night while drinking suds and 
watching the tube at New London. Lynn's ability to make the best 
of adverse situations (see above) is bound to ensure his success in 
any field of endeavor. 


Mike came to USNA from a suburb of Washington, D.C. During 
his four year stretch at Navy, any free weekend would find Mike 
and several classmates in D.C. eating his family out of house and 
home and helping to keep Brother Gus' in business. His grades 
started out high enough to put him on the Supt's list several 
semesters, but with the proper adjustments to his study tech- 
niques, soon came down to the allowable level for the 77. Mike was 
first string on the TT-ball team and the first person his classmates 
would turn to whenever a little leadership was needed. His friendly 
personality and ambitious nature will take Mike just as far- in life 
as he wants to go. 


Dick came to Navy from Grand Rapids, Michigan and quickly 
made his mark with a 4.0 first semester plebe year. Since that time 
he has hardly opened a book, but somehow he managed to stay on 
the Dean's List most of his time at Navy. He is always ready and 
usually able to offer help to a classmate. Dick's even-tempered 
disposition and sense of humor provided an outlet for his own and 
everyone elses frustrations. Many a TT-ballgame ended with "Pile 
on RhoadesI" He was a crew manager for one season, but spent 
most of his time playing company sports. Dick came to Navy with 
his heart set on following in his brother's footsteps as a Navy Pilot. 


As an Air Force brat, John can call many places his home with 
Portsmouth, New Hampshire coming last on the list before being 
unmercifully transformed from a fun-loving civilian to one of 
Uncle Sam's examples of military perfection. His athletic prowess 
on the soccer and football fields coupled with a strong competitive 
spirit has made John an outstanding teammate. Academics never 
bothered "Raids," and he never bothered with them although he 
always managed to keep Supt's List within sight. His ability to 
pinpoint a goal and strive for success made him a beneficial 
example to all who came in contact with him. 



It has been suggested by many that the "Ring of Valor" and 
"Men of Annapolis" cannot claim to cover all aspects of academy 
life. During his four year stay at Navy, Robert's life was accentu- 
ated by those portions of the aforementioned films, which the 
Maryland State Board of Censors could not have found anything 
but objectionable. A master of the one night term paper, Robert 
soon retired from the academic scene, choosing to favor his 
tendency to wine, women and song, in keeping with his continual 
pursuit of the "good life." Officer and gentleman by an act of 
Congress, Robert is indeed ready for the Fleet. But the question 


From Pomona, California, Jim brought this philosophy, "The 
less you sleep, the more you can work." He could be found at all 
hours of the night and day, working in the Photo Lab, playing 
football and lacrosse, studying, singing with the choir, or thinking 
of his favorite pastime; an XKE roadster (kept beyond the 
seven-mile limit ... at times). After a youngster year outside the 
Green Fence, Jim concentrated on lacrosse and his job as a 
photographer. Despite semi-annual periods of despair, he managed 
a respectable QPR in completing his Weapons minor. His work in 
the darkroom paid off too: he was the Photo Editor of the book 
you are reading right now. 


Snatched away from Sacramento, California by a Presidential 
appointment, Jim soon developed a nostalgia for the land of 
beaches and blondes that earned him the nickname "California 
Dreamer." Navy could deprive him of his Corvette and his 
surfboard but not his ability with the fairer sex, as is attested by 
his collection of wedding invitations from old girlfriends. Since the 
boat school didn't have a Corvette racing team, Jim channeled his 
athletic abilities into other areas, earning a letter in pistol and 
becoming a sought after member of company intramurals. The 
drive and determination that enabled Jim to fit thirty or more 
hours of work into each day will surely make him a valuable asset 
to the fleet. 


Coming to the Academy from Hawaii, Eric soon made a name 
for himself as one of the better amateur golfers this side of the 
Masters. When not on the links, however, he could usually be 
found in his room working on some virtually impossible nuclear 
physics problem. A hard worker, the establishment was quick to 
make him a striper, and he has proved that he can handle anything 
tossed his way. Eric does well at what ever he tries. As first string 
TT-football quarterback his blinding, hand-stinging passes were 
usually on target, and though not noted for his verbosity, his sly 
wit hits its mark in many a conversation. Eric is sure to find 
success in any field he chooses. 


Jim, who is known affectionately as "Bump" came to us from 
the University of Minnesota where he was studying for a Mechani- 
cal Engineering degree. Coming from the Naval Reserve, Jim 
adapted well to the rigors of the professional life at Navy. His 
favorite activity was steaming on the YP's. Here Jim really 
excelled, qualifying for Engineering Officer and OOD youngster 
year, and becoming YPRON 4 Chief Engineer in his second class 
year. Jim also did quite well under the water and could often be 
seen lugging his scuba gear over to the Natatorium. Varsity sub 
squad swimming rounded out his water activities, and company 
football completed his sports. Attitude, determination and dedica- 
tion to the Naval Service guarantee Jim success in the Navy. 


One year ago a significant event in recent Naval history took 
place with the commissioning of the battleship U.S.S. NEW 
JERSEY. Now, in 1969, the Navy prepares itself for yet another 
great contribution of New Jersey origin as Wojo, the wonder boy 
from Trenton, accepts his naval commission. A man of ahtletic 
ability, in his early years at Navy, Wojo used to throw the old curve 
ball for the baseball team. In his later years he curved out of the 
baseball scene, slipping into the pursuit of a more leisurely and 
pleasurable interpretation of Academy life. A Math major, Tom 
soon put two and two together coming up with that four year 
graduation and success formula.

Though not the Color Company, 3rd Company was always 
colorful. Activities ran from midnight sabre duels to hot dog con- 
cessions to water skiing on 1-1. Never let it be said that 3rd company 
did not enjoy good entertainment. There was always a large crowd in 
the wardroom on the weekends watching the best? Hollywood has to 
offer. THREE was never much on sports, preferring indoor sports like 
all night bridge and hearts games. And who knows what is in the keg 
that hangs over the wardroom door? After 3rd company's Army 
parties, the Plaza Hotel will never be the same. Third Company may 
not have been the pride of the Brigade but it is the pride of those who 
leave with memories and friendships that will never be forgotten.

"Whoa! You four hundred and eighty wild horses," echoes thru 
the halls and Flash Gordon Barney pulls up in his powerful, green, 
sexy, nonreg GTO. "The Iguana" hops out, a fifth of rum 
dangling from his left hand, a deck of cards clutched in his right 
fist, and a 220 pound Olympic barbell clenched firmly under his 
arm. Voted as Florida's 1968 "All American Boy Contest" winner, 
Barney could usually be found knocking off letters to his many 
admiring lovelys or sweating in the weight room as the mainstay of 
the First Batt weightlifting team. Jim's personality (and good 
looks) guarantee him success in anything he undertakes and we all 
wish him the best of luck in the future. 


Bill, or "good ole Brucks" as many guys came to call him, came 
to us from the wilderness of Rhinelander, Wisconsin, a "large" city 
somewhere west of the Atlantic and brought with him a personal- 
ity which continually amazed his classmates. A hard worker. Bill 
enjoyed studies and desired to learn all he could while at the 
Academy. But studies weren't his only interest as he excelled both 
on the athletic fields and at the Army parties. Known for his hall 
antics, Bill could be heard many a night echoing his famed Tarzan 
yell through T' court and never missed a chance at good old-fash- 
ioned horse play. Also known for his seagoing prowess and love of 
the wild blue yonder. Bill will probably be the Navy's youngest 


Mike, hailing from the land of mint juleps and peaches, 
brought to the Naval Academy the air of a Southern Gentleman, 
and the wailing sounds of Hank Williams. The only trouble he ran 
into Plebe year was with his squad leader who liked to intercept 
his mail from a certain, special Southern Belle back in Atlanta. 
Spike has excelled in both wrestling and academics in his four 
years here at Navy, being on the varsity wrestling team for three 
years. With "stars" on his P.J.'s, Spike could be found logging in 
many joyous hours in his pad. With his intelligence and deter- 
mination. Spike will be a valuable addition to Uncle Sam's Navy. 


John, who came to the Academy straight out of high school, 
claims Springfield, Massachusetts as his hometown. His four years 
of academy life have been impressionable, if not a constant chal- 
lenge to him as well as the entire system. His keen interest in the 
life of a midshipman and his strong desire for a career in the Naval 
Service are perhaps his most distinguishing characteristics. These 
factors cannot be outweighed by his never ending search for 
knowledge, for it was not an uncommon practice for John to stay 
up until the early hours of the morning studying. It is this same 
type of fortitude and desire that will carry John on to a most 
successful career in the fleet following graduation. 


A native of the Sunshine State, Bill came to the Academy after 
a year at NROTC at Auburn University. Since then he has chosen 
Naval Operations Analysis as his minor. Bill plays a blistering game 
of golf, but if he isn't out on the links giving some old pro a lesson 
or two he has probably donned his scuba gear to go tangle with a 
few alligators. An avid swimmer and sailor, he enjoys all kinds of 
sports and is a spirited competitor. 

Always willing to take a moment of his time to help someone 
with his problem. Bill has contributed much to Academy life. His 
spirit and dedication will make him a welcome addition to the 



The "California Blond" is of Navy lineage and hopes to follow 
in the submerged footsteps of his father. Known for his acoustical 
perfection he could always be counted on for advice on sound 
systems. His affection for water led to his prowess as a scuba 
instructor and junior aqua lad. This training should aid Pat in 
whatever branch of the seagoing Fleet he joins. Other areas of 
excellence known to Pat were wrestling, weightlifting, sports cars, 
running and drinking. His autobiography will someday make 
unbelievable reading. His smile and professional outlook should 
carry him far up the ladder of success. 


Mark came to the Academy right after graduating from high 
school in Oriskany Falls, New York, with a class of 17. The size of 
the Brigade presented no problems to Mark, and he easily adjusted 
to the rigorous demands of Academy life. His energy and enthu- 
siasm were evident in everything from J.V. soccer and company 
sports to academics and liberty. Though not the "Einstein" of the 
Brigade, Mark's common sense, determination, and self confidence 
will make him a welcome addition to the fleet — if his fellow 
officers can find him behind all that cigar and pipe smoke. 


Malcolm entered the Naval Academy from nearby Falls 
Church, Virginia. Having grown up with the Navy, Mai was no 
stranger to the customs and traditions which at first baffled us all. 
He never had any trouble with the academic departments as he 
ignored them for four years and they usually ignored him. An 
astute student of Math and Science, Mai will always be remem- 
bered snoozing in his pad with an opened "Physics" or "Fluids" 
book nearby. On weekends Mai would most often be found 
relaxing on the water, his first love. The Academy loses a com- 
petitor and many of us lose a friend on graduation day, but 
separate ways will not erase Mai's mark on the Academy or 


Mike dwells in Columbus, Nebraska, when the Navy doesn't 
require his presence elsewhere. Believing that a busy schedule will 
pay for itself, he added year-round participation in varsity crew to 
the requisites for a Russian major, and double-overloaded several 
semesters to fill the gaps. A diverse, almost conflicting, range of 
interests left Mike's attentions divided between chess and scuba 
diving, "New England girls" and Lotuses, or fruit flies and boa 
constrictors. He left his mark in places other than the laundry 
smokestack, though as the Supt's list attests, and the records show 
that he will be willing and able to offer a great deal to the service. 


A man so dedicated to doing a good job, that he will not sleep 
until he can say, I have done my best. Ron came to the Naval 
Academy already a veteran of college at Ohio University. Arriving 
from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Ron took the attitude that in order to 
get things done right in the class, he would give as much of his 
time as possible. Ron was very active working on the class policy 
committee and class car committee, as a company honor rep- 
resentative and a member of the choir. If not at some meeting or 
studying, Ron could be found working just as hard on the athletic 
field. Ron's dedication will always be one of his outstanding 


Randy came to the banks of the Severn shortly after grad- 
uation from Princess Anne High in Virginia Beach. As a Plebe he 
showed keen interest and was always involved in one activity or 
another. He found his new home in the EH&G Department and 
could be counted on for much needed assistance when less fortu- 
nate classmates were struggling with a term paper. Randy also 
found a position on the debate team. Debating required a great 
deal of his time, but the long weekend trips that went along with 
the tournaments more than made up for his troubles. Randy's 
grasp of professional knowledge and his ability to make friends 
should make him a welcomed addition to the Fleet.

Coming from the land of rain forests, IVIike brougiit with him 
an amazing talent for the unusual that kept all of us in high spirits. 
He will always be remembered for his ability to take a joke or a 
ribbing with a smile. Never one to concern himself with the 
expenses of a love-life, IVIike devoted his Saturday nights as color 
tone adjuster on the company's TV set. The blue trampoline 
insured his physical stamina while a member of the lightweight 
crew team. He learned the fine art of plebe indoctrination and all 
the plebes knew him intimately. Mike will be a welcome and lively 
candidate and addition to any wardroom and the Navy will gain a 
dedicated worker. 


Following family tradition. Chip decided to give up the sunny 
Florida life for a four year trip to "good ol' Canoe U." Life on the 
water seemed more than natural to him and this was evident in his 
participation In Water Polo, the Scuba Club, and in sailing on the 
varsity Shields team. Never one to throw anything away. Chip 
always had the most complete set of "gouge" in the company. 
Chip found his best times at the Academy were the summer 
programs, especially "happy hour at the O' Club." Never plagued 
by women problems, he always had dates waiting, and sometimes 
waiting, waiting and waiting. Chip's enthusiasm and drive will 
carry him far in the Naval Service. 


"Kief", after three successful years at Faribault High School in 
the vast waste lands of Minnesota, journeyed to the banks of the 
Severn. Greg took plebe year with a smile and a can of shaving 
cream in his hand. A constant wearer of stars, Greg even obtained 
a magic 4.00 one semester. Not letting his athletic prowessesgo 
wasted, Greg established himself as the Tommy Nobis, Bart Starr, 
and Raymond Berry of the lightweight, later heavyweight, com- 
pany football team. Never one to let his love life get him down, 
"Kief" could often be found pinning a new hopeful's picture on 
his bulletin board. With his desire and hard earned Oceanography 
Major, Greg should find success wherever he ventures. 


Hank came to us from the cultural center of the world. Long 
Island, New York. Known in high school for his athletic and 
academic ability Hank brought a true spirit of competition with 
him and exercised it on the athletic field and with the Executive 
Department. Although successful in endeavors with the opposite 
sex his social life was marred with many a set back by the 
U.S.N. A. blind date, and discouraged by the famous D.C. parties. 
Although Hank never saw life from theSupt's list he managed to 
stay well above the water line in academics. Also famous for a 
three foot hole in a YP, Hank will undoubtedly be a future C.N.O. 


"Grunt" came to the Severn after a tour in the Marine Corps 
and a year at the University of Colorado. A firm believer In 
regimentation and military life in general, the "old man" is always 
quick to defend his chosen life. No one can doubt that if there 
were ever anyone meant to wear the "green" it Is George. Is there 
anyone else who celebrates 10 November as a national holiday? 
His sharp military appearance and commanding voice are re- 
nowned. The future will certainly hold many successes for him 
both in and out of his beloved Corps. 



A Navy Junior, Dave hails from just about everywiiere but calls 
San Francisco his home. Dave came straight from Encinal High in 
Alameda, eager to make his mark at the Academy. Not one for 
numbers, Dave was a management minor in the truest sense of the 
word. Far more active outside the academic departments, he 
attended Jump school and became a qualified Scuba instructor. He 
was just as active in sports, trying his hand at everything from 
varsity sailing to company handball. His willingness to help, to 
work, and above all to have a good time will add materially to 
Dave's future success as an officer. 


Glenn came to the Academy from Ohio, and found everything 
he had dreamed of — on the other side of the wall. Making the 
best of it, he worked hard, both on the inside and the outside. He 
was satisfied with a 3.0 and a date every weekend, or maybe two. 
A consummate card player who never admitted losing, Glenn 
found time for other sports at the Academy, winning numerals for 
company football. Keeping his mind on the books was never a 
problem; Glenn made Superintendent's List and Dean's List with- 
out strain on his part or that of his books. If his luck holds out in 
the future, there won't be much to stand before him. 


"Howdy!" With a broad smile and wave of the hand as he 
greeted you, Tom could make you feel right at home, home for 
him being Williamson, West Virginia, on the banks of the mighty 
Tug River. After a successful season as a member of the Plebe 
football team, Tom decided to devote more time to the books and 
never encountered any problems there. He still found time to lead 
the company heavyweights and Softball team to victory on many 
weekday afternoons. Any other time you might find him contri- 
buting heavily to the bull sessions or grooving to the wailing sound 
of Hank Williams. With his friendly manner and desire to excel, 
Tom is assured of success in any future endeavor. 


"Nasty" Nastro, a wicked man with a lacrosse stick but not 
with the opposite sex, came to Navy after an exciting lacrosse 
career in Wantagh, Long Island. No matter how hard he tried every 
drag he had at USNA was a wonder to behold. Much, however, 
could be said for his academic prowess. Tom met the Math 
Department in his Youngster Year and the love affair that devel- 
oped was truly a passionate one. Tom could zerox a homework 
assignment faster than any computer. The best word to describe 
Tom's personality is "salty," truly he was born on the crest of a 
wave and rocked in the cradle of the deep. Probably a career man, 
Tom will make a fine addition to the Naval Service. 


"Pacer" came to the Severn following a year at the University 
of California at Riverside. He quickly established himself as a 
charger and left no doubt in anyone's mind that he would follow 
the path of his father as a career Marine officer. His hard charging 
and competitive spirit led him to the captaincy of the pistol team, 
and made him a welcome asset to any intramural team. Nat is a 
lover of soul sounds and every spare moment he can be found in a 
darkened room, filled with Herbie Mann or Wes Montgomery, 
contemplating problems in general. The future will certainly hold 
many successes for him both in and out of the Corps. 


Bob came to the .Academy from Andover High near Baltimore, 
Maryland. Once his bangs were cut, he stepped into Plebe year. A 
member of the Plebe fencing team, he quickly showed his ability 
with a sabre. During Youngster Year he started to show that 
academics were no problem. It was during this time that he 
showed his amazing ability to study with his eyes closed. Second 
class year found Bob in the full swing of things. With the aca- 
demics well under his belt. Bob concentrated on fencing and 
earned a varsity letter. With this proven determination. Bob has 
shown that he has the ability to attain what ever he sets his sights 



Scottie, a naturalized citizen of the U.S., was born in England, 
and the Limey was quick to defend his native land against all who 
dared criticize. He came to the Academy from his beloved home 
state of California and a year at San Fernando Valley State 
College. His interests included sports cars, sports and girls, not 
necessarily in that order. Minoring in Foreign Relations, Andy had 
no trouble with courses in the Bull Department, but didn't always 
see eye to eye with the other departments, especially Math. He 
was an enthusiastic participant on battalion squash, company 
lightweight football and company Softball teams. Andy's good 
sense of humor and jovial nature will make him a welcome 
member in any wardroom. 


Third Company's authority on wild animals found his way 
from Kent, Washington to the shores of the Severn, where Navy 
tried to force its abundance of the finer things of life on "Smjtty" 
and almost succeeded. He conquered plebe year rather easily and 
enjoyed the privileges of third class so much that the Executive 
Department bestowed the rates of a youngster on him again the 
following year. The classroom was never a struggle for Gary and 
his name became a permanent part of the Dean's and Superin- 
tendent's Lists. When he took time off from the pad, Gary was 
logging in mile after mile around Hospital Point. The Navy will 
benefit from Gary's hard working attitude, academic achievements 
and friendly personality. 


Chuck was an Air Force brat before coming here from Scott 
Air Force Base, Illinois via graduation from Mascoutah High 
School. Chuck has shown he has what it takes to be a top-notch 
performer. Intramural sports such as heavyweight football, fencing 
and water polo show Chuck's versatility. Academics are very 
important to Chuck. He selected the most challenging courses in 
the Engineering Department. This has been no easy task, for he 
has always taken at least one overload and still made the Superin- 
tendent's List every semester. Those of us who have known him 
during our four years at the Academy have certainly benefitted, as 
will the Navy and those who serve with him when he joins the 


Soly came to us from Clearwater, Florida and brought with 
him a unique musical talent and an aptitude for academics that 
could be matched by few. He was always on the Dean's and 
Superintendent's Lists. While not studying, and this was most of 
the time, Jim could be found penning a letter to his personal ray 
of Florida sunshine or devising some way to get closer to her for 
those too infrequent leaves. Even as a Plebe he was a mainstay of 
every sport in which he participated, whether it was volleyball, 
basketball, baseball or the blue trampoline. Jim's amazingly good 
nature and ability to do many things exceedingly well should 
make him a success in what ever field he chooses after graduation. 


Claiming Columbus, Ohio, as home, Pete gave up his dreams of 
being an All-American basketball player for State to come to 
Navy. Bringing along an adequate store of "smarts" to handle the 
academics, and athletic ability enough to make both the plebe and 
varsity basketball teams, about the only things Zuides needed were 
a few more nicknames (Channel-cat, Dutchman). Besides being an 
expert at guarding his rack and leading bull sessions, Pete managed 
to guide the company basketball and baseball teams to their share 
of victories. With his ability to make friends and his varied inter- 
ests, the Dutchman will be a welcome asset to what ever branch of 
the service he chooses and a success in any. 


4th Company 

FALL SET: CDR: J. C. Auriemma; SUB-CDR: C. M. Tanker- 
sley; CPO: J. H. Janes. 

"Four" ran the gamut of personalities from a Cromagnon Man to a 
modern day card shark who wondered if anyone was his "DAD". The 
Castlemen will always be held in esteem for lighting up the Dark Ages 
by always being on time with Campbell's electric bill. Any weekend 
would always find "Four" represented by Way in his scarlet silk shirt, 
or Carlson on his Harley, or Tank Swimming (?) over the wall. Any 
what Crab-town phone booth doesn't carry the trademark of Lon the 
"Swooperman". Tooner, Pear, Jack the Clipper, Dildo, Jerry the 
Pollack, Stien and Bergy, Haaardine and Reeevy, are all memorable 
characters who helped keep the "Ward" room open twenty-four hours 
a day. The Men of Four will be waiting for two more cohorts, Craig 
and Whitt, to join their ranks: they decided to stay at USNA a little 

But never you fret.

A real southern gentleman from Jacksonville, Florida, Chris 
appears to be a very serious college student to the casual observer. 
But once he takes off his hat, he looks much better with his 
yellow surfboard. Aside from being a scholar, making Dean's and 
Superintendent's Lists, he is one of Navy's finest intramural 
lacrosse players. Outside of sports, Chris' extracurricular activities 
included IMACA, Foreign Relations Club, Portuguese Club and 
NAFAC. Chris applied his cheerful attitude and dynamic person- 
ality not only to his classmates but to a better than average 
number of the opposite sex. His intelligence and ability to get 
along with people will make him a success in what ever field he 


John came to USIMA from Brother Rice High School in 
Chicago. Not one to worry about academics, Cro-magnon, could 
be frequently found in the embrace of the "pad Monster." His 
uncontrollable enthusiasm combined with his fine athletic abilities 
helped to lead the Fourth Company fieldball team to numerous 
victories, while his prowess in the "Chlorinebin" earned for him 
the dubious distinction of being selected Captain of the swimming 
sub-squad. In particular, he will always be remembered by the 
notorious "Castle Klan" for his unusual and rather colorful skill in 
redecorating pool tables. No matter what path John may choose 
to follow, his dedication, competence and sense of humor will 
make him an invaluable contribution to the Naval Service. 


Tom entered the Academy from the Fleet and soon established 
himself as one of the outstanding men of the company. He was 
well known for taking special liberties at the Academy. Taking an 
extra day for semester break or stretching a weekend pass on 
Youngster Cruise to thirty days were every day occurrences for 
him. Tom also has the distinction of being the first Greek Irishman 
to graduate from the Academy. Although his Greek ancestry is 
questionable. As far as sports and academics went, there was no 
greater competitor on the field and when study hour came around, 
Tom always found time to open the books during commercials. 
The Fleet will be proud to have Tom as a member. 


Being born a man of philosophy, the "Try Anything Once" 
credo brought Jim to the Naval Academy from the arctic wilder- 
ness of Minnesota. After adjusting to the climate and the military 
life, the "Make the Best of What you've Got" attitude began to 
bring out his musical abilities as a guitarist and his supernatural 
knowledge of wires, which enabled many of his classmates to pass 
the well known required science courses of second class year. A 
man of countless friends and endless monetary funds derived from 
some unknown source, Jim became a well rounded midshipman and 
after adopting the "It only hurts when you're awake" philosophy, 
he achieved unparalleled heights during his hibernation of the last 
two years. 


Dave, a product of Bradford, Pennsylvania, came to the Acad- 
emy directly from high school. Academics proved to be "no 
sweat" for him, and many a classmate will attest to his abili+y to 
unravel the evasive mysteries of electronics. Earning a major in 
Electrical Science, he spent many a study hour building tape-re- 
corders, record players, and the like. An experienced sailor, Dave 
helped lead the team to a Brigade Championship. Weekends first 
class year were divided between his MG and members of the 
opposite sex. Dave's maturity, common sense and personality, 
which endeared him to his friends and gained him the respect of 
his subordinates, will insure him of a successful career. 





Ed came to the Academy directly from Granby High School in 
Norfoil<. With his outstanding athletic and academic abilities, he 
had little trouble with the rigors of Plebe year. Besides maintaining 
his high grades, Ed still managed to find time to earn his letter in 
swimming and to drag almost every weekend. Even with all of 
these activities, he could often be found at the Castle, where, after 
a few tall ones, his reddened features earned him a reputation as a 
cherry of a guy. With all of his attributes, Ed should prove to be 
one of the most outstanding officers to graduate from the Naval 


John came to the Naval Academy straight from the thriving 
metropolis of Bremen, Indiana. (Where?) His hometown's size is 
one of the two jokes that he must face up to from his friends 
every day. The other being his "Captaincy" of the After Class 
Swim Club! Actually, John has some noteworthy achievements to 
be proud of. With a minimum amount of effort, he has maintained 
honor grades almost every semester. He is the reliable backstop on 
the company softball team and played on the Regimental Champi- 
onship volleyball team. John's warm personality is evidenced by 
the multitude of close friends that he has made. His sincerity and 
resourcefulness are sure to lead him through a very rewarding 
future in the Fleet. 


Terry, alias "Fat Tick" or "Stump", a product of Racine, 
Wisconsin, came to USNA straight from high school. He quickly 
established himself as one of those that had the determination of 
his ability to get things done. "Stump" was a star on the Plebe 
wrestling team which helped him at occasionally employing his 
talents as a semi-bouncer at the castle — that is, if he wasn't 
hampered by a strange affliction known to attack him on the 
weekends, impairing his sight and sense of balance somewhat. As 
for academics, the "Fat Tick" encountered a few obstacles, but 
managed to slide on through — Terry will certainly be remembered 
by all, for his optimism and sincerity which will certainly win him 
success in all that he undertakes. 


"Pee-Pee Bod" as Ed is tenderly called, has made one of the 
greatest contributions ever to our society — soft power. This 
achievement stems from Ed's vast experience with a mattress, 
ranging from eighteen straight hours to thirty seconds of pure 
relief. Ed's soft power has been put to great use in athletics — he 
has been known to change the TV channel three times in one hour 
in order to view all the football games. Ed's coolness is carried over 
from his military experiences at New Mexico Military Institute. All 
these qualities, coupled with Ed's amazing academic ability, have 
always stood him high in the Brigade organization. His training on 
the Atlantic cruises have endeared Ed with a great love of Navy 


Clay came to the Academy from Washington, D.C. as a day 
student, but found that Navy only accepted fulltime employees. 
"Herff" decided to stay and proceeded to build up an impressive 
academic standing, and his name was regularly found on the 
Dean's List. An enthusiastic runner. Clay was a valuable asset to 
the Battalion track team. For inspiration he usually turned to the 
"blue tramp" and his exceptional wit and carefree manner made 
for interesting bull sessions. His willingness to help classmates 
made many friends for him. When Clay graduates the Naval 
Service will surely gain a competent officer. 


Lonnie "P" came to the Academy from the heart of Missis- 
sippi. He quickly became popular with his newfound Yankee 
friends and with a large number of Maryland girls. Old Lon was an 
expert at having a good time and could be found anywhere there 
were girls, drinks, or both. Also an excellent athlete in any and all 
contact sports, especially those not involving an extraordinary 
amount of agility, he played 150 pound football and always gave 
his best effort in intramural fieldball and rugby games. The 
spirit of competition he learned on the athletic field and the 
perseverence he learned in his battle with the books should serve 
Lon well when he enters the Naval Service. 



Dave, a Navy junior, left his family back home in Walnut 
Creek, California and came to the Naval Academy with a thirst for 
knowlege and a strong determination to quench it. He met the 
challenge of Academy life with enthusiasm and spirit and has kept 
the same high standard of motivation all four years. Although 
frequently on the Superintendent's List, Dave could always be 
found in the pad before the midnight hour. He has become a 
'world traveler' with the Glee Club and enjoyed every minute of it, 
especially when it entailed leaving the Academy for a weekend. 
The high degree of conscientious initiative and ability that Dave 
possesses will undoubtedly serve the Navy well. 


"Smilin' Jack" came to Navy from the cornfields of Ohio. He 
was the proud son of a prosperous mid-western Farmer. Through- 
out his four years, Jack never surrendered the high principles by 
which he was raised. His dedicated, hard working, and cheerful 
nature made him an instant success at the Academy. Jack will 
probably be remembered most for his uncanny mastery of electri- 
cal science. He spent many helpful hours trying to relate to others 
the "magic of wires" which seemingly only he could comprehend. 
Jack's inherent good nature and quick wit truly represented the 
best of the Buckeye State. 


"K.F." as George is affectionately known to his classmates, 
hails from the thriving metropolis of Kensington, Connecticut. He 
has stood out ever since his Plebe Year with four stripes right up 
to First Class Treasurer of the "CASTLE. " One of the friendliest 
guys you'd ever want to meet there isn't a person George wouldn't 
share a drink with especially if it is HAIRY BUFFALO. Diligence 
and hard work are his middle names; study hour would always 
find him book in hand, one eye on the "set" and the other eye on 
the "popper." He'd never play cribbage without shoe polish and 
rag in action. Navy Line brace yourself — here comes "Kanupka 


Lewie came to USNA from Albuquerque, New Mexico after a 
peaceful year at the University of New Mexico. He never had any 
trouble with academics even though it was during study hour that 
he became one of the most accomplished barbers around. Lewie 
was always a fierce competitor in all sports and was one of the 
best athletes in the company. His weekends were taken up with 
work and play at the "Castle," where he did not need a reason to 
have a party. Lewie was always ready to lend a helping hand to 
anyone who needed it, whether it be in academics or repairing 
electrical equipment. Upon graduation Navy Air will receive a 
most competent and dependable Naval Officer. 



In a moment of unparalled weakness Dan passed up Purdue 
University for the brighter shores of Annapolis. Finding his inter- 
est at Navy lying in the field of international relations, Dan 
applied himself to the study of this subject with an avid interest. 
More often than not though, Dan could be found with his nose in 
a sports car magazine or under a pillow preparing himself for 
another hard day at the Academy. Dan's keen sense of humor and 
ability to get along with everyone made many friends for him. A 
true scholar and gentleman, Dan should prove to be a fine officer 
and an asset to the Naval Service. 


Never at a loss for words. Jack could always be found in the 
middle of a conversation giving somebody the "straight-gouge." 
Hailing from Massapequa, New York, Jack quickly found friends 
at the Academy. Both academics and athletics came easy for him 
as he participated in Plebe and varsity wrestling and was a stalwart 
on the company football and softball teams. When not in the pad. 
Jack could always be found spending his free time on his manage- 
ment minor or cycling about town. Other activities which took up 
much of Jack's weekend time were being a "castleman" and one 
of the original "good guys." Jack's graduation and commissioning 
will undoubtedly lead him to an outstanding future in the Fleet. 


Chuck came to us from the cultural center of East Baltimore. 
Plebe year taught Chuck the importance of dependability and 
impressed upon him the value of long hours of sound sleep. When 
Chuck wasn't in his pad dreaming fondly of sitting behind the 
wheel of his Corvette, you could find him out making a valuable 
contribution to the Batt lacrosse team. Chuck's fine sense of 
humor and his easy-going nature rapidly earned him the respect 
and friendship of those who came in contact with him. Chuck's 
June Week exploits caused many a beautiful young girl to, "Be- 
ware of the Pear." Chuck's friendly nature, sense of humor, and 
dependability will make him a valuable asset to the Navy. 


"Alfie," as Mike is affectionately know by his friends, came to 
USNA straight out of high school on a Presidential appointment. 
Born in Franklin, Indiana and being an Army junior, he had 
already become somewhat acquainted with service life. Providing 
the soccer team with his abilities he became a member of the plebe 
team, varsity squad and captain of the J Vs. Mike was also a 
member of the Catholic Choir. But these extracurricular activities 
never kept Mike from maintaining his high academic performance 
— especially in TV Guide analysis and poker probability. It is 
certain Mike's many and varied talents and determination to do his 
best will ensure him success after graduation. 


In four years at Navy, Barry never lost his North Carolina 
drawl and ability to get along with everyone he met, although 
learning to wear shoes was quite an adjustment. On his way to a 
major in Italian, he found time to row crew and improve his game 
of tennis, as well as watch a good amount of television. His 
musical talents were exercised through the Chapel Choir and the 
"Marksmen", for which he sang and played bass guitar. Known for 
head of hair and remarkable ability at mixing a drink, Barry will 
always be remembered by his classmates as the "Fang." His 
perseverance and dedication will certainly assure him of a success- 
ful and rewarding career. 



Ski gave up the wild fraternity life and left his ROTC buddies 
behind at the University of Illinois to come to USIMA. Academics 
were never easy for Jerry who worked hard to outsmart the 
"Wizards of Sampson Hall." Ski was not an early riser. During 
Youngster year, his love for those extra moments in the arms of 
the "pad monster" earned him many a relaxing weekend in the 
company of the BOOW. When not in the dentist's chair or 
combing his long locks, Petro was always willing to engage in any 
form of ahtletics, and contributed greatly to many of the winning 
company intramural teams. His determination and dependability 
will help earn for him his Navy wings of gold. 


Bill, otherwise known as "the fish or brapper" came straight to 
the Academy from Quincy, Massachusetts. Once at the Academy 
he established himself as a good student as well as a great friend. 
He could often be seen late at night making another attempt to set 
up his multi-million dollar stereo. He was also famous for his 
ability in writing checks, the same one over and over again. As an 
athlete Bill was one of the greatest the Academy has known, 
which can be verified by the many swimming records he set. The 
captain of our swimming team, he always found time to make it 
out to the castle to take part in the weekend festivities. Bill will 
surely be a credit to the Navy as well as his class. 


Roy was raised in Queens, New York, where he attended high 
school and one year of college before leaving for the Academy. A 
diligent worker and true believer of having a good time, when time 
permitted, he never let the perils of USNA get him down. "Reebs" 
has always been an admirer of the fairer sex. Every weekend he 
could be found dragging a different girl. Roy is looking forward, 
anxiously, to the joys of flying, either for the Navy or, on the side, 
as a private pilot. Here at the Academy, or in the fleet, Roy will 
always be known as one of the most friendly and sincere people 


Although a Navy junior, Roy entered the Naval Academy as 
innocent and unsuspecting as all plebes. In true Navy fashion, he 
traveled throughout the country and overseas attending numerous 
schools, yet his heart never left his native California. While at 
USNA, he was a hard and persevering worker, excelling consis- 
tently within the academic department. He spent as much time as 
his limited budget and even more limited leave periods would 
allow on the western slopes in pursuit of his favorite hobby, 
skiing. Roy's unyielding patience and desire for perfection, cou- 
pled with a high sense of humor, will serve him well when '69 hits 
the fleet. 


Carl, known to all his friends as "Tank", came to the Acade- 
my straight from high school. After a tough uphill fight with Plebe 
calculus. Tank managed to sidestep any further academic problems, 
pulling a major upset over second class wires. On the athletic field, 
he distinguished himself as an outstanding company soccer, foot- 
ball, and Softball player, and to this day, holds the sub squad track 
record for the second class run. His interests ranged from sports 
car racing to the progress of the beloved Senators baseball team. 
All these, however, was his dedication to the pursuit of the 
opposite sex. Tank's good nature, easy going manner, and strong 
determination will give the Navy an excellent and dedicated offi- 


Jim, better known as Bubba to his friends, was born in Dallas, 
Texas. He came to the Academy via one year at Navarro Junior 
College. Arriving at USNA a 'married' man by virtue of his 
engagement, he could usually be found in the hall on weekends 
either watching TV or in the pad. During the week his efforts were 
directed toward victories for the batt football, basketball, and 
company fieldball teams. When not preparing an aerospace assign- 
ment, in pursuit of his minor, Bubba spent his spare time figuring 
out how he was going to get rich on an Ensign's pay. A careful 
planner, he should make an excellent Naval Officer.

stint in twenty-nine. Since, we've lost but one, and had a few close 

'69 of the fifth has been a unique bunch: we've had our subtleties, 
but nothing of major consequence. Just little things, like the grand 
arrival of the company commander in the wardroom, announcing his 
condition while performing a strip. Naturally, we'll never forget 
Lieutenant Cleater's "firstie SLJ check-off board," or the major crisis 
over cruise assignments, or Judy Fondue. 

Above all else, however, we'll remember each other and the bonds

LT J. F. Cleater, USIM 



Hailing from the thriving metropolis of Port Lavaca, Texas, 
Charlie brought to the Academy a year of college and an affable 
personality. Not one to be satisfied with making the varsity Supt's 
List, he has made his mark on the squash team his first year 
followed up by outstanding demonstrations of softball and battal- 
ion football prowess on the tundra of Hospital Point. Being anchor 
man in swimming class, Charlie more than made up for this by 
taking afternoons off to show someone the more subtle points of 
nine-ball or tennis. Charlie's ambition and drive will stand him in 
good stead upon graduation and he will surely make as many 
friends on the "outside" as he has at the Academy. 


A land-locked lubber from Grand Island, Nebraska, Duane 
made the transition from the cloistered life at the University of 
Nebraska to the frenetic social whirl of USNA with a minimum of 
difficulty. Always adaptable, he soon discovered Eastern Shore 
lasses to be the equal of those in the Midwest, and had ample 
chances to perfect his escape and evasion techniques, generally 
after liberty expiration. When not pursuing his nocturnal activities. 
Bat still had sufficient time to be remembered as an unyielding 
defensive fieldball player, and to be an active member of the 
marching ninety of the Drum and Bugle Corps. Duane's resource- 
fulness, drive and intelligence will take him far in the Naval 


Hailing from "the lone star state" of Texas, Tommy arrived at 
the Academy right out of high school. A top notch debater in his 
pre-college days. Bids used his firm grasp of the English language 
and solid background in contemporary history to become one of 
the truly outstanding students in the Bull Department. Deciding to 
major in Foreign Affairs, Tommy applied himself to his studies, 
and though taking more than the required courses, was always on 
the Supt's List and an active member of the Foreign Relations 
Club. Tommy was a forceful leader who was never satisfied with 
anything less than perfection. His perserverance and drive will 
make him a valued addition to the Naval Service. 


Jerry, coming from a Navy family, graduated from high school 
In Norfolk, Virginia, but claims the deep south as his home. 
Believing in the finer things in life, he never sweated the academic 
departments as his sights were set on the most famous of midship- 
man goals — graduation. On the athletic fields, his spirit, drive and 
will-to-win made him an outstanding member of the company 
football and battalion tennis teams. A more likeable guy would be 
hard to find as Jerry's personality traits, all blended together, 
formed the basis of a truly admirable character. Always having his 
eyes set on the wings of gold, Jerry will be a find addition to Navy 


Wayne had attended a year of college before most of us were in 
high school. He came to the Academy via NAPS and quickly 
became known as the guy to see if you needed help on anything. 
"Stein's" activities included W3ADO and the Gun Club. He had 
the oldest recordings in the Brigade and logged as many hours as 
was possible in the company wardroom. Except for swimming, 
athletics came naturally, and he was a member of one Brigade 
champion handball team. Devoting the majority of this time and 
energy to his Oceanography major, Wayne always stood near the 
top of the class. Wayne's enthusiasm and keen sense of humor will 
make him an instant success in the Fleet. 


Greg, known to most of his classmates as Pele, came to the 
Academy from the Hoosier state. On the athletic fields his spirit 
and determination to win showed up as he won his 'N' on the 
varsity soccer team and was the pride of the company basketball 
team. Academically he never had any problems taking each course 
in stride. Upon graduation, Greg would like to leave the Severn for 
flight school. No matter where he may go, Greg will be an asset to 
any organization, for his pleasant personality, soft spoken man- 
ners, and desire to give the best of himself at all times will always 
be welcome. 



Born in Suffern, New York, Joe was destined to mai<e his mark 
In New Jersey. After attending grade scliool in Allendale, he was a 
National Science Foundation winner at Mahwah High School and 
president of his class. Academics were no problem, Joe wouldn't 
let them be. Opponents on the athletic fields were constantly 
amazed at Joe's ability, both physically and verbally. While acting 
as Regimental Adjutant during a Saturday evening formation, he 
so amazed the staff with his fantastic sword manual that the 
Regimental Commander walked past the OD in a daze without 
saluting. The fleet is certain to benefit from this many talented 
leader of men. 


Larry roared to the Academy fresh from two years at Daytona 
Beach Junior College and service in the Naval Air Reserve. From 
the first he was champion of numerous bull sessions in which he 
recounted his hilarious experiences in his hometown of Titusville, 
Florida. Larry is remembered for his participation in many good 
times like the Saturday nights the gang would invite themselves 
over to 179 Prince George Street. Larry was known for his 
competitive spirit on the athletic field as well as for his prowess In 
company volleyball, basketball and Softball. The same con- 
scientious attention to detail that made Larry a leader of our class 
is sure to make him an outstanding asset to the Fleet. 


Born and raised in Hamilton, Ohio, Mike came to the Academy 
straight out of high school through a Congressional appointment, 
and applied himself immediately for the four years ahead. Besides 
playing Plebe soccer, Mike started hitting the books early in the 
year, and though he never made Supt's List, he was never far from 
it. Always a hustler in any sport, Mike was a great asset to the 
intramural fieldball, football, basketball, soccer and Softball teams 
that he played on. Even two broken legs during his playing career 
couldn't slow him down. Though Mike's future plans are uncer- 
tain. It can surely be said that he will save the skin of any field he 


After having been awarded athlete of the year at his high 
school, Phil came to the Academy to further his athletic career. 
Being an excellent wrestler, Phil has tied up in knots many an 
unwary and larger opponent. Phil's prowess, however, does not end 
with his athletic ability but is reflected in his excellent grades and 
class standing. Studying far into the night is not unusual for Phil who 
has maintained a keen desire to do well. Phil, however, finds some 
relief from the work-filled week on the weekends where he has 
proved himself to be quite a ladies man. All in all, the Navy will 
receive a very well-rounded man when Phil joins the Fleet. 


East Mecklenberg High School of Charlotte, North Carolina 
lost one of its finest student leaders when Ed (known by his 
accomplices as Finny) came to the mighty Severn. As a member of 
the Plebe squash team and as a standout on the company basket- 
ball team, Ed showed the athletic side of a well-rounded indi- 
vidual. As a plebe summer squad leader, his leadership potential 
was realized. What makes Ed the outstanding individual he is, is a 
natural ability to make friends by putting people at ease. Through 
the process of elimination, Ed seems bound for Navy line, but 
what ever his choice, all who know him predict a successful career. 


Tom was born and raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa. He went to 
the Air Force Academy Prep School directly out of high school 
and transferred to USNA on a Congressional appointment. His 
first year here at the Academy found him actively engaged in 
Plebe wrestling. Sticking to his sport, Tom earned his letter and an 
N* against Army in his Youngster Year. When it came to sitting 
down and harnessing his tremendous reserve of energy, however, 
academics received the short end. His ability to get along well with 
others and his endless determination will carry him far in any field 
he chooses. 



Tony, the latin lover, came to us from Managua, Nicaragua in 
Central America. Plebe year was a little hectic for him because of 
the language difficulties but after a very short time of listening to 
the upper class use the standard naval vulgarisms, Tony caught on 
and became one of the guys. Tony's love for his native country 
seems to be his strongest virtue. Engineering and the politics of his 
country are his most important interests while here at the Acad- 
emy. Unlike most of his peers he has to fight off many beautiful 
damsels, definitely a problem to be envious of. If his luck with 
women is any indication of how he will do in future enterprises, 
Tony will have a most successful life. 


"Dean" is a true son of the Lone Star State. A man's man and 
no man's fool, he constantly plays hard and studies diligently. He 
can usually be found with the "men of Adonis" in the weight 
room or running circles around the opposition on the playing 
field. As poet laureate of the "Fightin' Fifth" he can always be 
counted on for some profound, if not astute, opinions. Although 
born on the crest of a wave in Charleston, S.C, it could not be 
said that salt water runs through his veins unless it was suspended 
in C2H5OH. Dean's idea of a well spent day was sixteen hours in 
the pad, four in the messhall and five in the wardroom. 


Arriving here from Hawthorne, New Jersey to pursue a lifelong 
dream of becoming a naval officer, Glenn's determination and 
hard work soon established him as one of the outstanding men In 
our class. His ranking in the top fifteen of the class academically 
was a source of great pride to all about him. Glenn also lent his 
talents and enthusiasm to a variety of sports, most prominently to 
the battalion football team as the starting fullback. His myriad 
Interests carried over into other areas, especially one to which his 
roommate introduced him. A man of good humor and warm 
personality, Glenn's horizons are unlimited and his goals are high. 
His will be a valuable contribution to the Naval Service. 


Being a Navy Junior, Dave has called many places home, but 
Rhode Island is his favorite. Dave's cheerful personality gained 
him many friends while at the Academy. Sports as well as acad- 
emics seemed no real challenge, as Dave was a regular on the 
Supt's List and gained fame as an Ail-American on the 150 pound 
football team. Dave's favorite extracurricular activity was blue and 
had white stripes and springs, but he was also active in the Scuba 
Club, Foreign Relations Club and the "N" Club. Dave's natural 
Intelligence and outstanding motivation towards the Naval Service 
will surely lead him to a highly successful career in what ever 
branch he chooses. 


Max is a Navy Junior who calls Jax Beach his home. After 
reporting to USNA from his senior year at Marion, he gained the 
Superintendent's List. When not studying or at the card table, he 
could be found playing company football or Softball. He was a 
member of the Scuba Club and completed the instructors course 
after many early morning swims. Max was well known for the 
generous chow packages that he often received, but never tasted. 
He will be taking to the air after graduation and his generosity and 
determination will make him a welcomed figure wherever he goes. 


Gary, a Navy Junior, hails from Sepulveda, California and after 
one year at college he bid farewell to campus life and joined the 
Brigade. He quickly found a place on the Plebe golf team and since 
then he has also participated in many company and battalion 
sports. Among his many interests at the Academy were the Ham 
Radio Club, the Pop Music Committee, airborne training and 
Meadeville, Pennsylvania. Although a good deal of his time was 
spent cursing the Weapons Department, he always managed to do 
well academically and was frequently called upon to help others. 
Gary's enthusiasm for the naval service, and his willingness to 
accept any challenge head on, will surely make him an asset to the 



Bobby graduated from Portsmouth Priory in Rhode Island and 
once at the Academy quickly established his reputation as a hard 
worker both with academics and company business. Being 
COMWARDROOM and arranger of parties extraordinaire still left 
Bob with plenty of time to iron his hair, contemplate the greatness 
of his Alma Mater, and eat, in which area he was the undisputed 
company champ. Grades were never a problem so Bob always had 
time for Sigma Pi Signia, his Science Club and for fixing anything 
and everything that might be broken. Bobby's great ability to 
make friends and lead them guaranteed a sure success in the fleet. 


The "Rigger" coming to the Academy from Kansas City, 
Missouri, soon discovered the hardships of plebe year. Although he 
could never be labeled a "slash," Jeff learned to roll with the 
punches from the steam and skinny departments. His interest 
shifted from a minor in Engineering to a major in graduating. Jeff 
showed himself as a hard charger in sports by choosing to relieve his 
tensions on the football, fieldball, and rugby fields. Jeff is a very 
determined individual and takes the attitude that a job worth 
doing is worth doing well. With an eye on the Marine Corps, Jeff 
has cautiously surveyed all aspects of the military. No matter what 
his choice may be, he's sure to succeed in all his undertakings. 


Charlie is a native of Trumbull, Connecticut where he grad- 
uated from Trumbull High in 1965 and immediately entered the 
Naval Academy, where he started a second outstanding athletic 
career. He began with Plebe football and crew. His efforts won 
him a position in the varsity boat. As well as in sports, Charlie's 
efforts were well rewarded in academics where he increased his 
QPR almost every semester. This was the result of his genuine and 
absorbing interest in his major field. Oceanography. Although 
most of his time was occupied by crew practice, Charlie never 
failed to impress everyone with the beauty and class of his drags. 
Charlie's graduation will provide the service with an officer of 
great spirit and desire. 


Snake came from the tall corn country right out of high 
school. Plebe year was easy because Snake could laugh at any 
occasion. Girls were a big problem. Carefully laid plans of con- 
quest of the fair sex quite often went astray. A wrestler in high 
school. Snake tried out for the plebe team, but soon learned that 
one or two people on the East Coast could wrestle too. A desire 
for the Marine Corps subjected him to much ribbing, but the 
Corps will soon have a lifer that they can be proud of.

"Steve," a loyal native son of Maine, came to the Academy 
fresh from High School and quickly established a reputation for 
excellence both in academics where his major was aero and in 
athletics where he excelled on batt football and company basket- 
ball and Softball squads. Steve was well known for his staunch 
support of the Boston Celtics and the Red Sox. His quest after the 
fairer sex was often the subject of many hilarious anecdotes but 
was nearly always successful and Steve was well known for his 
winning ways with the ladies. Steve's hard working, hard playing 
ways made him many friends at USNA and will serve to make him 
a great asset to the Naval Service. 


Ralph, a Navy junior, arrived in Annapolis after preping at 
Severn School in Severna Park, Maryland. His desire to excel was 
manifested in his consistent standing on the Dean's and Super- 
intendent's Lists as well as involvement in numerous extra- 
curricular activities. When not sleeping or studying, he could 
usually be found sailing for the varsity sailing team or training for 
the long distance ocean races which occupied his leaves every 
summer. Undaunted by a run in with physical chemistry during 
second class year, Ralph avidly pursued his interest in the sciences, 
majoring in Applied Science and minoring in his little black book. 
A man of warmth and understanding, Ralph will make his worth- 
while contribution to the Naval Service with "a tall ship and a star 
to steer her by." 


Paul came to the Academy from the beaches of California after 
a year at NAPS. Coming from NAPS Paul had a jump on Plebe 
year when he arrived, but being forced to sit on training tables for 
three sets really made it tough . Actually he accepted and con- 
quered all challenges the Academy could offer. While making 
Superintendent's List several times he also had time to throw the 
hammer on both the indoor and outdoor varsity track teams. Even 
with all his activities, Paul was always willing to help a classmate at 
any time. His considerations for others and his personal drive will 
certainly stand him in good stead when he trades his surfboard in 
on a destroyer. 


One of Mother B's most cheerful children. Chip came to call 
USNA home 13 days after graduating from high school in St. 
Louis, Missouri. This grand institution and Uhle have never been 
the same. Of course, the Navy way always wins, but Chip has 
forced out brighter days for all those who came in contact with 
him through sheer, undauntable personality. Although his restless 
energy takes unique avenues, he has added to his list of honors, 
achievement in academics (Dean's and Superintendent's Lists) and 
active participation in the Foreign Affairs Club and Naval Acad- 
emy Foreign Affairs Conference. Undoubtedly, whichever branch 
of the service claims Chip will be a livelier place than before. 


Upon graduation from Taft High School, Chicago, Illinois, 
Dave came to the Academy to play football. The "Toe" had an 
outstanding year kicking for the Plebe team. However, after easing 
through the first year, Dave devoted his time to studies and 
extracurricular activities in place of football. After two years of 
being business manager for the Pop Music Concert Committee, he 
was elected chairman in his last year. He was also an active 
member of the Antiphonal Choir. Dave has been enthusiastic 
about every phase of Academy life, which should carry over into 
his Naval Career. 


George arrived an hour early for his first day at USNA and 
thereafter did his best to spend as much time on liberty as 
possible. Living forty minutes from USNA towards D.C., George 
has been known to disappear in a jazz place in Georgetown only to 
reappear a few days later snapping his fingers in time to a distant 
beat. Plebe summer he was told that he looked like an ogre and 
the name has stuck ever since. Ogre has participated in wrestling 
and company sailing every year. He has also been his company 
NACA representative for the past two years. George was sold on 
air at Pensacola during 2/c Summer and he plans to fly upon

We began Plebe year in style by boycotting come-around one 
nnorning. In the winter we threw Taussig in the river and in springtime 
we were "most improved." Youngster year with the "Silver Fox" we 
lost Frank, Bill, and of course Christy! Second Class year found us 
gladly in First Batt with Captain Luke. We won three regimental 
champs but lost Mitch. Army party for many was at Doc M's in Philly 
and June Week brought many engagements. First Class year brought 
the leadership and guidance of Joe and Bonnie. Army weekend found 
us at the Holiday Inn of Deepwater where we initiated the traditional 
6th Company Rally! Steve and Dave left us, and for the remainder of 
the year a rally was held almost weekly at Uncle Tom's Cabin, Lake 
Leisure, Bowie or O'Connors. The Coast Button is pushed — ending as 
we began. Soul Six bows out in style.

Craig came from the sand and surf of Southern California to 
the cold stone walls of Bancroft Hall ready to face any obstacle 
conceived by the various departments at USNA. Never one to let 
academics interfere with pad time, Craig managed to keep his head 
above water. Weekends would find him in town advertising for the 
Log, or dragging his current O.A.O. Very sincere, likeable, with a 
great sense of humor, Craig found many friends among the Bri- 
gade. With his unbounded enthusiasm for professional subjects and 
his quality of dedicated perserverance to any assigned task, Craig 
should go far in the Naval Service. 


Mike found adjustment from farm life in Nebraska to the big 
city in Annapolis very easy. Plebe summer turned out to be no 
more strenuous than chores at home; Plebe year only a nuisance. 
The academic stars that became a regular part of his uniform were 
his ticket to the Sigma Pi Sigma. For afternoon exercise Mike 
resorted to rugby and fieldball. Mike never missed a Drum and 
Bugle Corps road trip and the chance to increase the size of his 
harem. Speed seemed to be the key word in his ambitions — fast 
cars, airplanes and girls. Success will be no stranger for his imag- 
inative personality will find a place in any field of endeavor. 


Born in Pennsylvania, Dave has long claimed loyalty to 
Atlanta, capital of the Cracker State. Dave found plebe year an 
interesting experience and is probably one of the few plebes 
guided the entire year by squad leaders who were five year men. 
Never the conformist however, Dave decided it would be much 
easier to handle the regular four year program and still get all the 
weekend play necessary to satisfy his appetite for beautiful female 
companionship. Fall always found Dave getting ready for a big 
Drum and Bugle Corps football show on an away trip. Wherever 
the winds of life lead Dave, there is no doubt that beautiful 
women, hard work, and success there also shall be. 


An Army junior, "Demps" came to USNA right out of high 
school. Having rowed in high school, Hubbard Hall became his 
second home as he spent all three sport sets rowing for God, 
Country and Navy. Bubbling over with self confidence Demps was 
never one to let an hour go by without alluding to his greatness. 
Studies came easy for him and he was always overloading a course 
or two trying to get ahead. A hard worker both on and off the 
water. Rick will be an asset to any branch of the naval service that 
he chooses. 


After spending one plebe year as a Texas Aggie, "Fish," Bill 
attacked his second with cheerful enthusiasm. He pursued a 
double major in Electronics and in Russian, maintained excellent 
grades, and shot on the plebe rifle team. His many varied interests 
included chess, ham radio, tennis, and professional subjects. Any 
weekend one might find him diligently working on an advanced 
electronics problem, reading Russian poetry to his roommate, or 
relaxing with his twelve-string guitar. Bill believes that a job worth 
doing is worth doing well. His perseverance, his ability to solve 
problems quickly and logically, and his insistence on personal 
excellence will stand him in good stead throughout his life. 


Rich, who calls Pensacola, Florida home, came to the Academy 
from high school. His interests include private flying, fishing and 
the floating part of our Navy which explains his membership on 
the YP Squadron. His facility with the Luce Hall routine and the 
"Destroyerman" sign on his door plate. A perennial member of 
the Superintendent's and occasionally the Dean's Lists. Rich some- 
times professes to an intense desire to dig ditches rather than 
study. The company fieldball team manages to keep him well 
supplied with bruises during the winter months. A Navy junior. 
Rich plans to continue his relationship with the Navy in a career 



Bob came to the Naval Academy after a year at NAPS and a 
year as a missile tech. Through his past experiences Bob had 
gained some valuable knowledge in many fields and was always 
willing to share this knowledge. With his ready smile and pleasant 
personality "Greb" became well known to many members of the 
Brigade. Although no academic genius, Bob applied himself dil- 
igently and was always tops in his management class. In sports, 
just as in academics. Bob worked hard and earned the nickname 
"The Lansford Flash." It was a rare afternoon that Bob wasn't 
over at the gym working out. Wherever Bob goes, he will leave his 
mark and those who meet him will be better off because of him. 


Tom came to the Naval Academy as a Navy Junior from 
California. He had no trouble adjusting to the rugged life of the 
Naval Academy. Tom was not satisfied with just being an ordinary 
midshipman. In between organizing Christmas charters to Seattle 
and reconstructing WRNV, he still had time to participate in the 
Photo Club and W3AD0. "Uncle Tom" will be missed most by the 
Executive Department and their need for him to set up sound 
equipment for pep rallies and speaking engagements. Tom will be 
remembered mostly for his amazing academic recoveries during 
finals. Tom's love for adventure and excitement will make him a 
success in whatever service career he might choose. 


"Jovial JT" arrived at the Academy having spent his last nine 
years in Italy. One was at once impressed by his easy outgoing 
personality and his genuine enthusiasm for Academy life. JT's real 
ability lay in "bull" and "dago." Second class year he received an 
outstanding letter of commendation for his Italian language re- 
search project on Italian Communism. JT was perhaps best known 
for his many and varied "ECA's" ranging from the Christmas Card 
Committee to the YP and Sailing Squadrons. Possessing a mar- 
velous sense of humor and the ability to smile in the face of 
adversity, JT will make an outstanding Naval Officer. 


"Huds," a Marine Junior, claims Annandale, Virginia, as his 
home. When ice docked the YP Squadron, Steve was then found 
shooting with the Plebe rifle team which won the 1966 freshman 
championship. After he accomplished the varsity to Camp Perry 
that summer, proficiency kept him with the team for three years 
and brought him his "N". When not shooting with the team or 
Gun Club, he could be found "trudging the track" keeping in 
shape for the all too frequent running tests. Between the rare 
weekends he did not drag and his lettering activities (both Black 
and Gold!), he still found time to hit the books. An organizer with 
determination and a dynamic personality, Steve will be a credit to 
his country's Armed Forces. 


"I plan to go to the Naval Academy," Hurls always told his 
high school classmates. Suiting action to the words, he came 
straight to Navy after graduating as top man in his class from St. 
Mary's International School in Tokyo. With the same ease and 
dispatch with which he had scaled Mt. Fuji and assisted his father 
as Naval Attache to Japan, Hurls emerged from the rigors of Plebe 
year on the Dean's and Superintendent's Lists. He has combined 
his dedication to the Navy and continuing academic achievements 
with an enthusiasm for dragging, weightlifting and a penchant for 
partying. His own high standards and perseverance will help him 
make a meaningful contribution to the Navy and his country. 


Steve came to the Naval Academy from the Garden State of 
New Jersey. Among the varied interests he brought along with 
him, including sports, listening to good music and his tastes for 
spicy foods, most outstanding was his love for basketball. Almost 
any afternoon in the spring or fall, Steve could be found in the 
Field House either working out in a scrimmage or just shooting 
baskets, and he spent two winters playing with the varsity. He 
became noted for his keen competitive spirit and desire to win. 
These qualities should help Steve succeed in anything he attempts. 



Ken came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in 
Wharton, Texas and immediately began to demonstrate those 
statesmanlike qualities that have made Texans world renowned. 
Ken was always a valuable asset on the athletic field, where he 
excelled in football. However, he was best known as a fierce 
competitor in swimming, always willing to donate a few days each 
week to the sub squad. He never let academics interfere with his 
love for sleeping, maximizing pad time and still maintaining pass- 
ing grades. Ken's friendly personality and cheerful attitude will 
serve him well in his career as a Naval officer. 


Jerry came from a little city in Kansas by the name of Morrow- 
ville and brought with him a smile, a laugh, and a personality as 
big as the expanse of land from which he came. He found that his 
talents of getting along with people could best be utilized in a 
minor in Management. In addition, to his academic load, Jerry 
found the time for the Glee Club and Chapel Choir. He could 
usually be found late in the afternoon playing his favorite sports, 
Softball, soccer and how about swimming! Jerry is considered by 
all to be a well rounded individual worthy of his nickname "Teddy 


The Hell's Angels lost a potential member when "Koz" ac- 
cepted his appointment and bought Navy blues instead of leathers. 
Fresh from a shortened summer of Northern California sunshine, 
water-skiing, and girl-chasing, Don immediately put his vast nauti- 
cal experience, gained from watching "Men of Annapolis" and 
"Victory at Sea" to work. Never one for the books, the "Russian" 
could often be found at two in the morning typing three week late 
term papers; or, during more leisurely times, trying to figure how 
to beat Wall Street, blissfully unaware that money was a prerequi- 
site, Koz will be remembered most for his easy-going personality, 
keen professionalism, and famous, annual "Koz leaves" ending an 
hour or so after everyone elses. 


Hailing from that Gulf city of Biloxi, Mississippi, Mike (alias 
Leo the Lion or Stump) came to the Academy ready to conquer 
it. Athletically well-endowed he starred on a championship soccer 
team and led his lightweight football team to many victories. After 
a low start Plebe year in academics he was able through concen- 
trated effort, to raise his class standing hundreds of places. A 
constant source of delight to all with his imitations and jokes, he 
won the friendship of a good share of the Brigade. His amiability 
and dedication to the job at hand mark him as a man destined to 
do well in his chosen career.

Bob came to USNA straight from LaSalle High in the "City of 
Brotherly Love". Academics were no problem to him so he was 
able to spend most of his time playing basketball and sleeping. His 
athletic abilities proved him to be a tough competitor in any sport 
he played. Being from Philly, "Logs" was able to throw some great 
parties everytime the Brigade was there. Party time was also much 
enjoyed by this witty "mover" who was able to supply many with 
laughs and surprises while partying. A natural leader, his academic 
abilities and dedication will take him far in the Naval Service. 


The Democrats of Chicago lost a favorite son when Mac accept- 
ed his appointment to the Naval Academy. Coming fresh out of 
high school, Ed made many friends due to his easygoing personal- 
ity and unashamed, good natured naivete. Never being one to 
place much emphasis on spit and polish, Mac spent his free time 
on the touch football field, softball diamond, or in the pad in an 
indefatigable struggle to fight fatigue. Mac's weekend jaunts to 
Chicago will long endure in the record books. A quick wit and 
quiet determination are certain to find him a success in his chosen 


Dave, a native of Santa Fe, New Mexico, came to the Naval 
Academy with a head start on the Navy being in the reserves for 
two years. He became affectionately known as the "Mexican" and 
could always be counted on for a humorous time. With his many 
and varied interests it is a wonder how he managed to keep his 
head above water in academics, not to mention his being a well 
known swimmer. Dave will best be remembered for his melodious 
voice and strong hand on the "Bass" as a member of the Out- 
riggers. With his quick wit and unending humor the "Mexican" 
should have little trouble in the Navy. 


After two years active service in the Fleet, with a year at 
NAPS, Paul decided the Navy looked like the life. He entered the 
Academy and took up sailing. A virtual one-man crew, Paul spent 
most every weekend during the fall and spring sets out on the 
Chesapeake. When he wasn't sailing, Paul was busy lending his 
talents to whatever activity happened to strike his fancy, be it 
tennis, basketball, swimming or just having a good time, and good 
times were always better with Paul around, for he could always be 
counted on to do the unusual. Paul's gentlemanly manner and 
dedication will assure continued success after graduation. 


Coming from Anoka, Minnesota, Larry found a way to fulfill 
his dream. After a semester at the University of Minnesota, some 
time in the Fleet and NAPS, he arrived at the Academy to satisfy 
his desire to prepare for flight training. His devotion to athletics, 
running cross country, indoor and outdoor track, and to the 
academics, being on the Supt's List nearly every semester, as well 
as gracing the Dean's List occasionally, should give an indication 
of his desire to fulfill his dream. Realizing the need to maintain 
the proper social graces, Larry cultivated the companionship of a 
local beauty. Hardly a weekend was spent in good ol' Mother B. 
His drive and unequaled desire to excel should hold him in good 
stead when he reports into the fleet. 



John came to us from the shores of Lake Michigan and the 
"Windy City." Well liked by all and a leader in his class from the 
start, "Sculls" continued his success through the four years. As a 
regular member of the Superintendent's List, his lights could 
always be found burning late into the night. John excelled in 
boxing and after several successful seasons switched to lead our 
company soccer team to a Regimental Championship. John's de- 
termination and willingness to work should be valuable assets 
towards achievement of success in his chosen career. 


Steve, better known as "Shums" came to Navy directly from 
Bloomfield High School in New Jersey. He will be remembered as 
a dago slash, studying French and completing a Spanish and 
Portuguese minor while at the Academy. Despite the curve balls 
thrown to him by the Science and Math Departments, he main- 
tained a good grade average. His ability in soccer lent great support 
to the company team and his interest in boxing was matched only 
by his interest in competitive pistol shooting. His extra-curricular 
activities include the Portuguese Club, the YP Squadron, and 
attending airborne school where he earned his silver wings. His will 
to win and determination are sure to make him a success in the 
Naval Service. 


The state of Massachusetts lost one of its best embalmer's 
apprentices when Ed accepted his appointment to the Academy. 
He was better known as "Mort," short for mortician, because of 
his former "profession" and his morbid sense of humor. Con- 
stantly a bug on physical fitness, he could always be seen running 
on the rocks of the seawall, hoping to fall. Nothing could compare 
with Mort's ability with the books, and his high class standing 
proved it. Upon graduation, all of us will definitely miss Mort and 
his entertaining personality. No matter what career Ed chooses, he 
will definitely be a success and the success he attains will never 
approach that which he deserves. 


"Warns" started his professional career with a twenty mile 
drive from nearby Lanham, a convenient distance for Saturday 
night liberty. Rapidly becoming aware of the rigorous required 
standards, he made a conscientious effort to uphold them — 
delving into concentrated studies of Navy wool blankets and 
sliding bottom boxes. On the playing field, he became known as a 
serious sportsman, taking defeat heavily and savoring success. 
Supplied with a quick wit and warm humor, "Warns" had little 
trouble making friends and is a sure bet to build upon the 
responsiblities experienced during his four year stay. Whatever 
field Paul chooses to enter, his custom of looking ever toward the 
future can only result in sought after and well deserved success. 


Dickie, who hails from Cleves, Ohio, abandoned his "scalpel 
and stethoscope" ambitions to become a sailor. A high school 
honor student, he continued in his academic ways, avoiding the 
many temptations of college social life and managing to be a 
consistent member of the Superintendent's and Dean's Lists. After 
excelling on the plebe swimming team, Dickie retired to the easy 
life of intramurals where he participated in basketball, football, 
swimming, and the blue trampoline. Known for his great personal 
appearance, he was a guiding light for the young chargers. Dickie 
will be an asset to any branch of the service. 


Scott came to the Naval Academy from the Green Mountains 
of Randolph, Vermont. Among the varied interests he brought 
with him including hunting, fishing, scuba diving, and guitar play- 
ing, most prominent was his love for the game of basketball. 
Almost every afternoon Scott could be found in the gym either in 
a fast and furious scrimmage, or just shooting baskets. He became 
well known for his highly competitive spirit, his desire to win, and 
his keen sense of fair play whether on the basketball court or off. 
These qualities will make Scott a valuable asset in any field he

Located on the ground floor of "The Village", 7th Company is an 
interesting place indeed. Besides being a favorite hang-out for rise and 
shine OOW's, "Sweat 7" is also famous for two Trident Scholars. A 
host of varsity athletes and the best wardroom in the Brigade. It also 
boasts such notables as a "little theater," a garden club, a committee, 
a rambler rogue, and a 5-drawer file cabinet. During the year, men 
from 7 have been well represented in the Masqueraders, the Hop 
Committees, the Y.P. Squadron and the Academic Board. In addition, 
a normal weekend can find various 7th Company men at the 
Palomino, at the Lone Star in Easton, or in the OOW shack in civvies. 
As '69 turns over the bubble to '70, we leave the mayor, the Rev, and 
the wobbly-legged chair. It's been real!

The summer of '65 saw Bob entering via Evergreen Park High 
School, Evergreen Park, Illinois. The company didn't get to see 
too much of Bob's ever present good personality Plebe Summer 
but the nurses at the hospital sure did while the doctors tried to 
fix his back. They did a fine job as Bob went on to anchor the 
Varsity Wrestling Team. An instant winner with the women and 
never one to pass up a party he also had a serious side. Whether on 
the mat, in the classroom or accepting responsibility Bob always 
did a good job. His competitive spirit, his desire and his winning 
personality will surely add to the fleet. 


The pride and joy of Clear Lake, South Dakota, came to Navy 
after a year at S.D.S.U. Well liked and easy-going, "Mudson" failed 
to go easy on himself as he proceeded to elect eight courses per 
semester. However, his name appeared on virtually every Supt's 
and Dean's List ever printed during his stay at Navy, not to 
mention how close it came to the very top of the class. Fearing he 
would have too much time to study, Mud quickly became an 
integral part of the Chapel Choir and Glee Club while in the winter 
months, he busied himself with the duties of Varsity Basketball 
Manager. Earmarked for a Ph.D., Bob plans to do graduate work in 
Nuclear Physics. 


Eric left the farm in Green Bay, Wisconsin after graduating 
from high school and came to USNA to find a new kind of life. 
Soon after gaining his sea legs on Youngster cruise, he mysterious- 
ly acquired the nickname "Hi-Brieser." Having chosen to study 
Aerospace Engineering, the Hi-Brieser spent many hours in the 
library studying curves and lines of various types. Eric was chosen 
by his company classmates to be their representative on the Honor 
Committee and he spent several hours working for it. The Hi- 
Brieser liked to play hard as well as work hard; he participated on 
intramural teams in cross country, fieldball and rugby. Noted for 
his common sense and practicality, Eric will be a welcome addition 
to the fleet. 


Johnny, a Navy junior to the nth degree, graduated from high 
school in South Carolina as valedictorian of his class. Entering 
with the Class of '67, he quickly saw the light, although maybe 
not in conjunction with a textbook, and wisely matriculated to 
become a true '69er. Such was the dedication to purpose that had 
to be conquered to stop him short of his goal of graduation. After 
another plebe year, he became well adjusted to his horizontal 
office and bewildered classmates at his endurance in "the pad." 
"Sweeper" is characterized by his slow southern speech, Confed- 
erate flag and a constant search for humor in life and he will be a 
welcome addition to any wardroom in the fleet. 


This "old salt" of Maryland's Eastern Shore vaulted into Naval 
Academy life after a grueling year at NAPS. His closest friends 
called him "The Gopher" because he was either burying an oppo- 
nent under a Navy wrestling mat or eating dust on the Rugby 
Field. There seemed to be very little to disturb "easy-going" 
Spence. There was, however, one aspect of Academy life which 
always seemed to amaze him — his minor. Never really tasting the 
sweetness of bachelorhood while at the Academy, Spence plans to 
get married upon graduation and then devote his life to a distin- 
guished career in the Navy. With his peace of mind and back- 
ground Spence will make a fine naval officer. 


Straight from the "gateway to the West" Mike came, ready for 
a satisfying career in the Navy. Having had six stripes during his 
military high school days, Mike was content to make the "pad- 
monster" his almost constant companion. His waking hours were 
filled with the study of economics which is his major field of 
academic endeavor. Mike displayed his athletic abilities in com- 
pany soccer, softball and especially football where his one-handed 
end-zone grabs were feared throughout the Brigade. Spreading 
good will throughout the company was always one of Mike's 
favorite pastimes. With such outstanding motivation and great 
ambition, Mike has a fine career ahead of him and should be able 
to attain anything for which he has aspirations. 



Entering the Acadenny directly from Teaneck High School, Si's 
New Jersey accent and his "if not, why not" mind found them- 
selves rapidly placed near the top of his class. Somehow finding 
time to study while playing varsity soccer, batt tennis, and com- 
pany football, besides serving on several class committees, "Seich" 
has been a consistent member of the Supt's and Dean's lists. 
Though one of the "Shaft Alley Boys" since Youngster year. Si 
found that he had to desert them considerably as a firstie in order 
to baby sit a linear accelerator in D.C. for his Trident scholarship 
in applied science. It's no holds barred as Simon aims toward a 
graduate degree in California and a position in the Silent Service. 


Coming from sunny California and the son of a career naval 
officer, John was no stranger to the Navy or to Navy life when he 
came to the Academy. Very few know as much professionally as 
John. He took part in such sports as tennis, plebe pistol and 
became proficient on the trampoline. Never a slouch academically, 
John spent many hard hours hitting the books and gathering 
gouge. The one characteristic most attributable to "Jake" is his 
friendliness and good nature. Following the drift of his conver- 
sation can be a little difficult at times, but his smile and easy laugh 
make him a fine addition to our fleet. 


Fred came to Annapolis straight from Welch High School in 
West Virginia. He settled down to the books Plebe year and won 
stars for his effort. After the confinement of Plebe year, however, 
he found that there are more things to life than books. Known to 
his friends as the "Fox", he quickly got into the swing of dragging 
and charming the young ladies with his southern drawl. The Fox 
was also adept at games of chance not only with cards but also 
with the Executive Department who presented him with a "Black 
N" award for one of his many escapades. Fred, with his congenial 
southern manner, will be welcome in any wardroom. 


George probably left his home in Cleveland, Ohio wondering 
what was in store for him. Although his good natured character 
made him a failure as a cynic, "Grumpy" could often find a choice 
word for anything. Not one to take life easy, George was a regular 
on the Superintendent's List and became well known for his 
heroics in battalion football, rugby and fieldball — be it key tackle 
or a fruitless dive into the dirt. Not one to be put down by the 
fairer sex, he quickly learned that the whole world wasn't just for 



Coming from Alaska, Lebanon, Virginia, New York and finally 
New Jersey, Leebsch divided his vast talents among company 
sports, Spanish classes and letter writing. He became expert at all 
three. Doug could be counted on to excel at those courses he liked 
and to make valiant last minute stands in those he didn't. But 
somehow in the end, no matter what the courses involved were, 
Spanish came out on top. A confirmed Navy junior Doug upheld 
the highest traditions no matter what color the battlefield. With a 
winning smile, easy going manner and a desire to get ahead there is 
no doubt that Doug will be a success no matter what field he 


Dick's "civilian" honeymoon was over when he made his way 
to Annapolis, but no one would ever know it. Being a native of 
nearby Catonsville he arrived on that rainy June afternoon with a 
toothbrush, a lacrosse stick and a remarkable set of qualities. His 
sense of humor and quick wit were always in evidence as was 
Dick's ability to cooly calculate the precise amount of academic 
effort needed to survive. Although he carried a company football 
in the winter his first love was lacrosse which he played three years 
on "Bildie's" unbeatable ten. Being remembered for his stint on 
the plebe detail, his easy going nature and pleasant personality will 
make Dick a capable officer and certain success. 


"All me bloomin' life. Sir" was Steve's reply when first asked 
how long he'd been in the Navy and that was the truth! A Navy 
Junior, Steve joined the Navy in '62, attended Communications 
School in California, and spent some time in Japan before report- 
ing to NAPS. Steve came to the Academy with the Class of '68 but 
switched to the Class of '69 so he could take advantage of the five 
year plan. He found himself to be the "old salt" among his new 
classmates and will long be remembered for his sea stories. Steve 
knows the Navy well and can be counted on to get a job done. The 
fleet will be glad to see him again. 


June of 1965 found Ray at the Naval Academy fresh from 
Nashville and high school, and one of the most likeable guys 
around. The next four years proved "Bear" worthy of the best and 
capable of the most spontaneous. From small time investment and 
half-time romances to full-time academics. Bear could be de- 
pended upon for the unpredicted, unprecedented, and always 
hilarious. Ray proved himself a worthy competitor on the athletic 
field with an appetite to match in the messhall. Spring always 
found him with the first suntan in the company and the tighest 
squeeze into whites. Ray's a fine guy with a bright future who's 
always a good time and a great friend. 


Coming all the way from Sioux City, Iowa to meet the big blue 
waters for the first time, "Mules" soon found that the Oath of 
Office entailed more than first met the eye. Ron always managed 
to brighten some of our darkest days with a little humor. By the 
end of Youngster Year, Mules had asserted his claim to a B.S. 
degree by successfully statementing his way out of several Forms 
2. Later in his career at USNA, when his classmates dreaded the 
mud of Little Creek, Ron could honestly say he loved it! Ron has 
taken his commitment to his God and to his Country seriously and 
can be counted on to shed some light wherever he goes. 


Arriving at "Canoe U" three days after graduation from high 
school, "Blue and Gold" quickly adjusted to the rigors of midship- 
men life. After "freshman" year, with a natural ability to get along 
with others and an unusual supply of spirit and energy, he easily 
made many friends. Having to work for his grades, he holds many 
dubious academic awards and records which occasionally led to an 
anxious moment during finals, but John always managed to rise 
for the occasion. He maintained an exuberance in social activities 
and his search for the depth of life led into many an "0-Club" 
bar and many a young lady's heart. In the years ahead, his warm 
smile, refreshing outlook on life, and laugh will be remembered 
wherever John travels. 




The Quill came to USNA from Marmion Military Academy 
with a background of grease and grades, and has worked hard at 
maintaining both. While wearing stars, he is actively participating 
in Russian Club, Masqueraders and several other extracurricular 
activities. He has a unique ability to see something funny in almost 
everything. Not one to let it get him down, he keeps his sense of 
humor, and always has a good word for someone. It's a sure thing 
that Greg will make a fine officer in what ever field he chooses. He 
never misses a chance. 


After a year at the University of Arizona, "J. R." tried for four 
years to create a party school image at the Naval Academy. Being 
a part time amateur aviator himself. Jack was a virtual walking 
encyclopedia when it came to facts concerning aviation. His inter- 
est in aviation coupled with his businessmanlike attitude lead to 
the organization of the famed California Charter. His travels from 
coast to coast proved to be his most enjoyable pastime. Upon 
graduation Jack intends to tackle the whole Navy. His enterprising 
attitude will undoubtedly make him exceptionally successful at 
any challenge. 


Frank, an army brat from Lawton, Oklahoma, came to the 
Naval Academy after a year at Cameron College. A standout on 
the varsity rifle team for three years, he was chosen team captain 
his final year at Navy. Combining a quiet personality with a warm 
smile he won many friends at the Academy. Not an ungainly 
person when it came to the opposite sex either, Frank was able to 
count on a date wherever he went. Caught in the clutches of the 
Aero Department, he worked hard during the week but never let 
academics get him down on weekends. With his outstanding atti- 
tude and personality, Frank will always be a credit to the Naval 
Service and the Naval Academy. 


Dave learned quickly to leave his correct leave address even 
before he set foot in these hallowed halls. It seems he was truant 
the day his notification of appointment reached Falls Church High 
School in Falls Church, Virginia. "D. C." quickly got into the 
thick of things as he went on to win the Brigade wrestling 
championship in the 137 class Plebe Summer. Bored with pushover 
opponents he found an appropriate match with the arrival of the 
first academic semester. It is said that the academic department 
came the closest to defeating him. A Navy Junior, Dave can tell 
stories of adventure from Paris to his own backyard with an 
extroverted laughter that will insure him of a happy future with 
many friends. 



Carneys Point, New Jersey harbored "T. P." until Navy gave 
liim a harbor of his own. Although quite successful in the acad- 
emic world, Tom found himself in uncharted water when con- 
fronted with navigation. So unusual were his navigational skills, 
that he was dubbed "Prince" after that famous seaman. Prince 
Henry. Not one to be beaten, Tom went down to the sea in Y.P.'s 
to prove himself worthy of his alias. He thoroughly enjoyed 
playing company volleyball, football and Softball, although noth- 
ing seemed to please him more than a well heated, controversial 
discussion. Tom's good nature, sincerity and perseverance will be 
valuable assets in what ever goals he pursues. 


"The Grook" was one week out of high schol in Nashua, New 
Hampshire when he reported to Navy. He arrived bearing only a 
pronounced New England accent and one of the most amiable 
personalities in the class. He finally taught himself to say "park" 
instead of "paak," but four years of battling the system have not 
put the slightest scratch in his good nature. It would be impossible 
to list all of Paul's extracurricular activities, however, most of us 
will remember him for the outstanding job he did as Chairman of 
our Ring Dance Committee. Above all, Paul is a man whom one 
can be proud to call a classmate. 


"Rhumbo", hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, came 
directly to Annapolis out of high school. He immediately began to 
apply his athletic and academic talents for the benefit of the Navy. 
He distinguished himself as a left-handed pitcher on the baseball 
diamond, but his greatest accomplishments were achieved in the 
classroom. After three years of hard, diligent study Ray received 
word that he would never have to take another "Bull" course. He 
had been awarded a Trident Scholarship in Aeronautical Engineer- 
ing. Ray was also known as one of the best tenors in the history of 
the Glee Club. Ray has the ability to succeed in the Navy or 
civilian life, whichever he finds more to his liking. 


Rick came to USNA with a twinkle in his eye: he'd finally 
made it out of NAPS. A Chicagoan, he had to make only a few 
adjustments when he came to Annapolis — notably on his guitar, 
which he's been adjusting ever since! He's always smiling — from 
pleasure, from amazement or simply from the results of some 
quiz. He's had a few problems timing his quizzes — not to mention 
his smiles — but neither have been able to get him down. Though 
there are bags under his eyes now, the twinkle's still there. He'll be 
a welcome addition to any fleet. 


Woody, a native Texan from Austin, considers one of his 
greatest failings in life as not having developed a Lone-Star accent. 
He attributes this imperfection to a period of expatriation in D.C. 
during his formative years. A true organizer with a mind geared for 
a good time. Woody has been responsible for so much of the 
company's spirit. No matter what his mood, he's friendly and 
outgoing to others. An accomplished banjo strummer, he's kept 
himself busy with choir, Masqueraders, photography, painting and 
work with the Ring Dance. From a seaman on YP's plebe year, he 
made the hard climb to CO. The short long-tall Texan is a guy 
anyone would be proud to call friend.

The close knit 8th Company began the year with a party at Aida's. 
This set the festive trend that was to be characteristic of the year to 
come. After several weekend nights at Rip's and Lido's, the company 
had an outstanding Army party. Then, after first semester exams, we 
got together for a skiing weekend at Seven Springs. Immediately after 
that, we all met once more for the Ac-Board.

Mike came to the Naval Academy from the fine state of Texas. 
His time was divided just about equally between preparing for 
class and bulking up for football. He was also a stand-out perform- 
er on the company basketball team. Mike's perseverance and hard 
work paid off in everything he attempted. Never one to complain, 
he always managed to see the brighter side of anything. Always 
interested in oceanography, Mike can't wait to put his knowledge 
to good use. Of special interest to him was the forecasting of 
breakers and surf and beach forms. Mike still hasn't decided for 
sure what branch of the Navy he will enter after graduation. After 
much careful deliberation he will probably flip a coin on the big 


Howie arrived at the Academy from Phoenix, Arizona. Never 
one to be unheard from, Howard quickly became an integral part 
of his company. Wherever a party or good time was to be found, 
Howard could be expected to be there contributing his utmost to 
its success. He could also be expected to contribute the the various 
activities of his company. He was a member of the company's slow 
pitch Softball team as well as the company's lightweight football 
team. In the fall one could usually find Howard over at the golf 
course. His leadership ability will undoubtedly carry over into the 
fleet, where the Navy will greatly benefit from his presence. 


Ollie, as known to most, exemplified the utmost in spirit, both 
on the track and in his association with others. He set his stan- 
dards high; in track, he totaled more than double the points 
necessary for his varsity 'N' in the mile relay; in the company, his 
active participation in all affairs lent strongly to their success. 
Ollie's wholehearted effort and subtle enthusiasm were ever pre- 
sent throughout his four years at the Naval Academy. Though 
academics often gave Ollie a difficult time, his perseverance and 
intense effort saw him through with well above a 2.0 cumulative 
QPR. Ollie's competent judgment and high motivation can only 
lead to a successful and esteemed career as a Naval Officer. 


After spending a year at Greensboro College in his home state 
of North Carolina, B. W. brought about two years of USNR time 
to Severn U. Overcoming the "downs" of Plebe year, he found 
"life" somewhat better the next three. Devoted to company 
sports, he applied himself in football, soccer, softball and sailing. 
B. W. divided his time among books, the pad, dragging, and the 
phones — in that order. Never one to really sweat the system, B. 
W. never worried about stars, finding that he could devote most of 
his time to his management minor and holding his own in "core" 
courses. Wayne's resourcefulness will certainly make him a credit 
to his service. 


Majoring in Aeronautical Engineering, A! found his time to be 
well occupied. One of the major consumers of Al's time has been 
his intense interest in debate. A carry over from his high school 
days, he found debate extremely rewarding an an excellent oppor- 
tunity to develop organizational ability. Al has received several 
awards for his speaking while the climax of his achievements came 
in his election as president of the debate team. While satisfying his 
extracurricular thirst for activity, Al managed to come out well on 
top in his battles with the academic department. Setting his goals 
high, he attained a cumulative QPR well above 2.0 further illus- 
trating his perseverance. His persistent attitude and willingness to 
work assure Al of a fine career. 



Jim's quick wit and flashing grin were a couple of the many 
reasons why he was so warmly accepted by all at Navy. A product 
of Lisbon, North Dakota, "Toad" was active in all phases of 
Academy life, including Catholic choir, glee club, June Week, 
"extracurricular" weekend parties and sleeping contests. As a top 
notch athlete, Jim led the company lightweight football teams to 
victory each winter, and he was always a top "draft choice" in 
pick up basketball games. His strong drive and tremendous ability 
to lead with honor and respect will undoubtedly advance Jim 
along the path to an outstanding career in the Naval Service. 


"Cooch" came to us straight out of high school. His happy-go- 
lucky manner and smile soon became known to almost everyone. 
Being a Navy junior. Bob doesn't claim any one state as his own, 
rather he picks the entire East coast as familiar territory. Aside 
from the Navy, of course, golf would have to be his dominate 
interest here at USNA. If he wasn't in his room, he could almost 
certainly be found on the Academy links. The years at Navy did 
manage to subdue him somewhat, but he will always be remem- 
bered for his enthusiasm and great spirit. Bob's ability and charac- 
ter mark him as a leader in the Naval service he chooses. 


Since coming to the Naval Academy from Colorado Springs, 
Jim, with his quick wit and his ever readiness for a good time won 
many friends. He met the academic challenge with much gusto but 
still managed to stay well clear of the Dean's or Supt's Lists. Being 
an Air Force "brat" Jim has always wanted to fly, and he hopes to 
take out his frustrated whims for aviation by donning Navy wings 
of gold. Though lacking in size for the intercollegiate competition, 
Jim had a love of sports and has proved an asset to all of the many 
company intramural teams on which he played. Because of his 
keen professional attitude and his will to do his best, Jim is 
destined for much success upon graduation. 


"Tomato Juice", as known to some, came from Milwaukee 
where St. Norbert's College was able to hold his interest for only a 
year. His first love was football and three varsity N's exemplify the 
desire and love for the game he possessed, not to mention his 
innate athletic ability. T. J.'s power of concentration is a quality 
that would be envied by any conscientious student. His exception- 
ally high grades were a result of hard work and dedicated study. 
However, even during the off season, Tom was able to put in time 
out on the track, attesting to his ever present pursuit of excel- 
lence. His quiet friendliness will always be remembered by his 
classmates and his outstanding abilities will make him a great asset 
to the fleet. 


Hank, an import from Waterford, Virginia, is a jack of all 
trades. An excellent athlete in any sport he tries. Hank excels in 
lacrosse and wrestling. Due to his efforts to read anything he can 
get his hands on, Henry has gained a multitude of knowledge on 
many subjects. Although Henry could never figure out why he 
didn't go to school on some cool paradise island, he attempts to 
make up for this with swimming and being a member of the Scuba 
Club. When it comes to academics Hank managed to pull out the 
grades with as little study as possible. Always one to be quick with 
wit and jokes, Henry's seriousness -when needed will produce a 
capable and hardworking Naval Officer. 


Ed-Fred arrived on the banks of the Severn, hailing from 
Leechburg, Pennsylvania, and bringing with him the best ginger- 
bread cookies east of the Mississippi. He found the joys of plebe 
year as truly pleasant as the rest of us, but somehow managed to 
put on twenty-five pounds in passing. Beneath a harried exterior, 
there lay a perseverance uncommon among midshipmen concern- 
ing academics, and Fred quickly earned the much-deserved status 
of "Class Gouge." We'll never know how many of us were kept 
from the long green table by Fred's notes or from starvation by 
those gingerbread cookies. 




Mike came to the Academy directly from liigh school in 
Newton, Massachusetts. He would have to be characterized as the 
strong, silent type as exemplified by his dedication to crew and his 
studies. He has been a member of the crew team for four years and 
on the Supt's List almost every semester. In order to accomplish 
this, Mike has ordered his life so that he gets everything done, and 
still gets eight hours sleep a night. When awake, Mike's smile and 
cheery looks put life into anyone's day. Mike's achievements are 
certain to lead to a long and distinguished naval career. 


Dave, the son of a Marine, spent most of his life traveling 
before arriving at the Naval Academy, where he now spends his 
time preparing for his career in Navy Air. Dave is noted for his gift 
of conversation, and is seldom lacking for friends or a party. 
Always smiling and laughing, he is not easily overlooked in a 
crowd. He is a lover of cars, skiing and most sports involved with 
speed, as shown by his adventures as one of the original Eighth 
Company "Road Maggots." Living life to its fullest and flying are 
perhaps his greatest desires, for a conservative he is not. A good 
friend and midshipman, Dave will undoubtedly be a great asset to 
the Naval Service. 


Jim came to the Academy from high school and La Crosse, 
Wisconsin. Not one to worry about grades, he probably slept as 
much as, if not more than anyone during his stay at Navy. Jim was 
on the Lucky Bag staff and helped the company out on the 
athletic field. His main interests of golf, tennis, squash, and sleep- 
ing will carry over well in later life. Jim has always been serious 
when need be, understanding and willing to try to help a friend 
out. His ability to handle any situation with ease and his pleasant 
nature will be definite assets in all his duties as a Naval Officer. 


After coming from the lobster loving land of Maine and a 
session at Bullis, J. B., a Navy junior and entrepreneur at heart, 
took to sailing like a duck takes to water, for which he has 
received three Navy "N's". He not only sails on it but swims under 
it as an avid scuba diver. His weekends are spent sailing and 
developing a quite rigorous social life. Even in that ominous field 
of academics, Jim is "water" oriented with an oceanography 
minor. Never one who is willing to sit and wait, J. B. is constantly 
working at one thing or another. This trait along with his inherent 
knowledge of the Navy will carry him far in his career.

A Kiddy-Cruiser from Utica, New York, Bill came to the 
Academy shortly after graduating from high school. Plunging into 
plebe year, Bill found It quite a challenge but with a characteristic 
abstinence and determination, bulldozed his way through. After 
playing mostly company sports plebe year. Bill found a strenuous 
sport in Brigade boxing, but always came back to help the com- 
pany when boxing was out-of-season. Although Bill found the 
E.H. & G. Department his home, he amazingly enough plowed 
through four years of Science and Math with one of the better 
averages in the company. His wit, determination and perseverance 
should serve him well throughout his long and successful Naval 


Cliff came to the Naval Academy from the land of sky blue 
waters, more specifically from Morristown, Minnesota after a short 
stopover at Northwestern Prep. A hard charger on the intramural 
circuit. Cliff was well known for his hard blocking in company 
football and Rugby. He will always be remembered for his ability 
to throw a party for visiting cadets. Academics never bothered him 
much, but once he got away from his nemisis, the Bull Depart- 
ment, he proved his worth in his true field. Engineering. With his 
ability to make friends, his cheerful attitude and willingness to 
help others he will certainly prove to be a valuable asset to the 


Duke came to the Academy from Birdsboro, Pennsylvania 
where he stood out in football and baseball. After arriving here, he 
played Plebe football and helped out on the J.V.'s for two years. 
After football season, you could find him romping and stomping 
on the fieldball field. When not involved in sports, Duke was 
usually hard at work on his studies at which he was not known as 
an "Einstein," but he always seemed to make the grade with a 
little to spare. You might have also found him making people 
happy with his great humor. With his magnificent sense of humor, 
and great determination to get the job done, Duke will without a 
doubt, do well as a naval officer and go far in life. 


John came to the Academy from Akron, Ohio after spending a 
year in the Navy at NAPS. He participated in football and lacrosse 
there and pursued athletics further at the Academy with three 
years of football and one year of lacrosse. Aside from his en- 
deavors in athletics and academics, John always managed to keep 
out of Bancroft on weekends. He has always demonstrated a zeal 
and drive which have made his work and that of anyone near him 
seem easier. His agreeable personality and determination to get a 
job done will serve him well as he embarks on his career. 


Craig, a native New Yorker from Long Island, came to the 
Academy fresh out of high school. Once at Navy Craig put much 
of his natural ability in sports and academics to good use. 
Lacrosse, soccer and football became his favorite sports after a 
season of gymnastics as a Plebe. Though he didn't actually shock 
the academic departments with his abilities he managed to obtain 
a major in Wires. Craig devoted much of his spare time to helping 
his classmates with professional advice on his specialties — girls 
and money. He was also an active member of the Lucky Bag and 
the Brigade Activities Committee. Once Craig leaves the Academy 
and the mighty blue trampoline he will most likely bounce into a 
career of Navy Air. 



A Navy Junior, Don has been pulling up stakes all of his life. A 
former member of the Class of 68, Don's good humor and sincer- 
ity of purpose soon earned him the respect and friendship of his 
new classmates. Taking the professional aspects of Academy life in 
stride, Don took an active part in company affairs and earned 
himself a spot upon the plebe summer detail. His competitive 
spirit made a mainstay of the company soccer and heavyweight 
football teams. A man who preferred good fellowship to text- 
books, Don was more comfortable arranging a party than tackling 
his academics. His determination to succeed and his ability to 
make friends will ably assist Don in a successful Naval career. 


Rich came to the Academy directly from Robert E. Lee High 
School in Midland, Texas, where he was a standout in football. He 
is the second of the Puckett boys to graduate from the Academy. 
His brother, Don, graduated in '66. Since coming to the Academy, 
Rich has lent his talents in football to the Navy team and in the 
off season contributes to his company by playing fieldball. For 
four years Rich rode the line in academics so naturally he could be 
found hitting the books most of the time. The rest of the time was 
spent in the rack or just having a fine time. Rich is a person of 
great humor. He could be depended upon to liven up any group 
with his presence. This humor along with his great determination 
will without a doubt, propel him along in his chosen field in the 
Navy and make him a successful naval officer. 


"The Coyote" came to these hallowed halls from the blue-grass 
pastures of Kentucky. A well spent year at NAPS, where he 
received the outstanding athlete award, prepared him well for the 
rigors of plebe year, which he took in stride. It was at NAPS the 
seeds were planted that could be seen blooming every Saturday 
during the lacrosse and soccer seasons, where he was for three 
years a regular and outstanding performer. Never one to spend too 
much time studying, "Sads" could often be found on the party 
circuit pursuing the finer things of life. After graduation, Ron 
plans on spending most of his time in the cockpit — either of his 
Corvette or in earning the wings he has dreamed of for so long. 


It was not hard for Ed to make the transition from real life to 
the Navy after growing up as a service junior. An honor graduate 
from Newport News, Virginia, Ed was delayed a year by the 
NROTC Unit and the University of South Carolina. After a tumul- 
tuous Plebe year he settled down to his favorite hobbies of reading 
and taking it easy. It was a real rare weekend he was caught inside 
the hall. His keen competitive nature found expression on the 
rugby field each spring. Battalion sports like boxing, crew and 
football filled in the other sets. His easy going attitude should 
prove helpful in any branch of the service he enters, he will make a 
fine officer. 


Tom Tyler came to the Naval Academy from Sparta, New 
Jersey via Admiral Farragut Academy. With such a background, 
the life of a midshipman was old hat to Tom and he always found 
a way to sidestep the system. As a talented athlete, he was a 
welcome addition to the batt boxing and company football teams. 
Academics never held much excitement for Tom and he was 
always looking for other outlets. A good man at a party, he 
managed to retain a fine selection of the fair sex for such occa- 
sions, and as one of the eighth company "Road Maggots," Tom 
has emphasized that the quiet conservative life is not for him. 
Tom's plans for his life in the Naval Service are somewhat hazy, 
but what ever he chooses he will be an asset to that field and a 
credit to his class. 


Born an athlete, Sam entered the Academy with the intention 
of raising the athletic rather than the academic standards. With 
these intentions Sam succeeded in becoming the one of the com- 
pany's first "N" winners in football, his favorite sport. Despite 
professing a profound liking for the pad, Sam decided that mid- 
way through his second class year to sacrifice this valuable time in 
order to maintain a Supt's List average. Regardless of what walk of 
life Sam chooses, there is no doubt that it will be at the top. With 
his attitude and drive, he will be a pretty hard guy to stop.

The Buddies have had an interesting four years. Broken in and set 
the example by the Mets of '67, what else could we do but go them 
one better? We remember Plebe year: the Plebe summer kool-aid 
party, the debauchery of the snowbound term break and the Reflec- 
tion Pool revenge against '66. We remember Youngster Year: the 
bed-against-the-wall Notre Dame party, the birth of the "Tremendous

Pool after the last p-rade. We remember second class year: the tragic 
loss of a classmate, the ring-dip and subsequent ousting from the 
hotel, the June Week softball game — glove in one hand, beer can in 
the other. Finally came our last year: four years on the fourth deck, 
four years and no varsity athletes, four years older and the parties 
aren't as they were.

Bugs is not a scholar with any pretentions to accurate learning. 
He is a mere seeker, a would-be servant of his kind, and, withal, 
one who, all his life, has been drawn from within, by inclination, 
towards study and thinking, and dragged from without, by circum- 
stances, towards executive and miscellaneous work of various 
kinds. During the week. Bugs could be found sitting in his room 
either studying or complaining about the system; and on the 
weekends he was usually the first one out to Church Circle. 
Appropriately named the toughest street fighter in Buffalo, Bugs 
always placed himself on the offensive. Being the most candid 
person in the Brigade, his name will definitely go down in the 
annals of time with the great Philo McGiffen. 


Denny blew in here from Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Starting 
with the Drum & Bugle Corps, plebe year, he left that club for 
better things as an upperclass. He has continued to share his 
talent with us as lead trumpeter in the NA-10 and the "New 
Group" as well as organizing and playing in various improvised 
jazz groups. His athletic contributions were made mainly in com- 
pany sports — volleyball, basketball and baseball. An Aero man, 
Denny was also a real advocate of the pad. The rigors of Academy 
life have not kept the "Man About Town" from having a good 
time and he's always been a regular at the.Buddies' rallies. In what 
ever he undertakes, Denny is sure to be a success. 


Chris, more affectionately known as "CJ", came to us from the 
San Francisco Bay area. Along with him, "CJ" brought his care- 
free, friendly personality. During his tenure on the banks of the 
Severn, academics were not one of Chris' favorite hobbies. As a 
matter of fact, if it was possible to put knowledge back into the 
books, he would be the first one to do it. Between playing the 
guitar, building models, "shooting the bull", and chasing girls, 
there was seldom time for much else. Despite his varied interests, 
"CJ" managed to hang over the old 2.0. With his pleasant person- 
ality and his ability to get along with others, Chris is one the Navy 
can well be proud of. 


Coming to us from New Orleans, Martin gave up college life at 
L.S.U. to fulfill a lifelong ambition. He has proven himself more 
than capable of handling any situation which may pop up. A star 
man for four years, academics have given him little trouble. 
However, in the natatorium. Rock has more than lived up to this 
name. Most of his time has been devoted to helping everyone else 
with studies, organizing parties, and building the loudest stereo 
system in Bancroft Hall. The originator of the Dirty Dozen, he is 
usually in the middle of the company's affairs. His hard work 
combined with tremendous potential are certain to carry him to 
the top of his chosen field. 


Bill came to us from Exeter, New Hampshire with a winning 
personality and a competitive spirit. Bill's talent was a vital asset 
to the successful plebe crew, company fieldball and battalion 
boxing teams. "Salty Billy" was even seen one spring sailing 
around the Chesapeake on the company knock-about team. Acad- 
emics sometimes presented a challenge but Bill always came out 
on top. He found a second home in the Naval Science Department 
where he showed his ability as an oceanographer. Never one to let 
the system spoil a good time. Bill was a man who enjoyed his 
weekend liberty. Many a successful Buddies party had Bill's organ- 
izational skill behind it. We look for Bill to be an instant success in 


Bubba came to USNA from Valley Forge, Pennsylvania with 
bleached hair, a suntan and a determination to make good as a 
"Middie." His academic fireworks as a plebe dwindled to a sputter- 
ing but steady flame as upperclass academics were faced. A de- 
voted wrestler and wrestling fan, Bubba spent time on the plebe, 
battalion and varsity teams as his main athletic endeavor. Always 
ready for a few laughs or a party with the Buddies, he was never 
far from the Annapolis action. A prolific pad man, Bubba spent 
many periods in the horizontal position, making those long unin- 
terrupted hours of unconsciousness look so effortless. His easy- 
going manner and friendly grin should guarantee his success in 
whatever he does. 



The people of Toledo, Ohio lost one of their brighter young 
men when Jeff left Central High to come to Navy. Jeff, never 
having any trouble with academics, has been on the Superinten- 
dent's List ever since plebe year. After plebe year Jeff decided to 
join the ranks of the BULL jocks. He can always be counted on 
for an eloquent opinion on anything from foreign affairs to 
company basketball team strategy. He was a fearless fighter for the 
second batt boxing team as well as lending his support to the 
company basketball and battalion tennis teams. Jeff's drive to read 
and learn about everything he can get his hands on will surely be a 
great asset to the fleet. 


In the spring of 1965, on the hot, dusty plains of Topeka, 
Kansas a vital decision was made. At the expense of the Air Force 
Academy, Roger swept towards Annapolis. As plebe year was 
drawing to a close, Roger found himself in the hospital, nursing his 
injured knee, while the rest of the class was on youngster cruise. 
Quick to assume command, Herms coached the company basket- 
ball team to a brilliant 2-6 record. His musical talent was not 
wasted, as he participated in Concert Band, Drum and Bugle Corps 
and NA-10. Academically, his grades fluctuated from the unsat 
level to Dean's List. Roger's easy going style of professional 
competence will be put to good use in his career as a Naval 


A proud Philadelphian, Higgs came directly from high school, 
but never encountered the academic difficulties that plagued most 
of his classmates. Also a proficient athlete, Higgs was a leading 
member of numerous intramural teams. When not helping less 
fortunate friends with their studies, he could usuallly be found 
listening to his "boss" Philly sounds, reading Surfer magazine or 
quietly dreaming away the hours until the next leave. His easy- 
going manner and subtle wit have brightened many a day for those 
around him. The addition of Jim's dedication and self confidence 
to his natural intelligence assure him of a very successful career. 


"Holli" or T. J. as he is often called, calls Scituate, Massa- 
chusetts his home. While working for an Applied Science major 
and a Math minor he never had any trouble with academics and 
could be seen wearing his stars or taking advantage of the Superin- 
tendent's List privileges throughout his stay at Navy. Tom's real 
love, however, was sailing, and he spent both fall and spring 
seasons climbing masts and racing on the yawls. A defender of the 
company fieldball team during the winter months, Tom also found 
time for Antiphonal Choir, Sigma Pi Sigma, and the Scuba Club. 
As for the future, Tom's personal ambition and drive will insure 
his success. 


Howie arrived here from the hot dry weather of Tucson, 
Arizona and met his first challenge in getting used to the humid 
Annapolis weather. This was the foundation of his belief that the 
West was "the place to live." Howie exercised his talents in 
organizing many of "the Buddies" infamous parties and contribu- 
ting to company skits with his speaking ability. A vocal and 
enthusiastic Navy rooter, Howie devoted much of his time to 
being a varsity cheerleader. You could always pick him out at the 
football games as the one with the rapidly receding hairline. When 
it came time to study "the Bumper", a nickname he acquired 
when he began to show his reaction to the rigors of Youngster 
year, buckled down and earned a minor in Electrical Science. 
Whichever branch of the Navy Howie chooses, he will prove a 
capable leader and a fine Naval Officer. 


Leaving Whitman College in his beloved home state of Washing- 
ton, Rollo came to the Academy armed with enough ammunition, 
both physical and mental, to fight his way through the four years 
at Navy, A knee injury early in plebe year deterred his football 
career, but Rollo continued to be a standout in intramural sports. 
The books presented no problem for Rollo who wore stars as a 
result of steady, hard work and a good mind. Rollo was no loser in 
the girl department either, more than once having the strange 
situtation of too many girls at one time. His intelligence, ability 
and personality will assure Rollo's success in the future whatever it 
may hold. 



Straight from high school, Doug entered the Academy through 
an appointment by the Secretary of the Navy. A natural athlete, 
Doug can usually be found playing basketball, football or doing 
pull-ups. As the years passed and subjects became more difficult, 
his academic prowess increased more than enough to meet his 
demanding load, and he also was always willing to help classmates 
in academics. An avid "Notre Dame" fan, Doug can be seen 
wearing his "Notre Dame sweatshirt" during study hour and 
yelling "Go, Notre Dame." His quiet and easy going personality, 
sincerity and thoughtfulness has won him many friends through- 
out the Brigade and with these qualities he should prove an 
outstanding addition to the Naval Officer's corps. 


"Moff" graduated from Centennial High School in Portland, 
Oregon. According to those who have known him these past few 
years Jim can best be described as "different." Academically, 
despite all the efforts of the Weapons Department, he emerged as 
one of the company scholars. Athletically, his aggressively compet- 
itive spirit made him an asset to the battalion cross country and 
water polo teams, and a key man on the company touch football 
roster. But Moff will, no doubt, be best remembered for his 
sizeable harem of local cuties and his outlandish northwestern 
wardrobe. A man of many talents, Moff should succeed in any 


Mike (Twiggy) came to colonial old Annapolis from the teem- 
ing metropolis of Elmira, New York. He was immediately caught 
up in the busy daily life of a midn. He breezed through the 
academic program majoring in Math. Your study hour was not 
complete without a trip to Mike's room for a little extra gouge. 
Mike was also one of the versatile athletes in the company, with 
only one weak point . . . "Ye Olde Swimming Hole." Mike spent 
plebe year pitching for the plebe baseball team and in the years to 
follow established his reputation as the top bowler in the com- 


Having arrived at Navy by way of the University of Alabama 
and NAPS, "Nick" brought with him the unlikely nickname he 
won at NAPS because, well ... he just looked like a "Nick." 
Always abreast of the latest in the world of sports one could never 
defeat his belief that "Bear" Bryant was the greatest and "the 
Tide" would always be the best. One of the Big Blue Team's 
greatest supporters, Ernie's devotion to our athletic teams was 
always best demonstrated in his disappointment when they lost. 
Never left out of a conversation, you could always depend on one 
of his classic witicisms like "He looks like the North end of a 
Southbound Mule." His outgoing personality and sincere concern 
for the other person will make "the ol' Watash" one of our finest 


John comes from "Hometown, USA", Glens Falls, New York, 
deep in the woods of the Adirondacks. Not the man to let studies 
interfere with his education, John has averaged reading at least 
three books a week since the first marking period of plebe year. 
Combining his interests in the out of doors, animals and myths 
and fables, it is only natural that he plans on being the first man to 
track and bring back alive an abominable snowman. A past master 
of the one-liner, John and his bubbling personality have won more 
friends, started and finished more parties, and except for wires, 
gotten into and out of more tight spots than any of the Buddies. 
He is just getting started. 



Val came to the Naval Academy after two years at the 
University of California, Berkeley. Coming from a Navy family, 
Val always had his sights aimed at USNA. Being active in the 
Catholic Choir, Spanish Club, Newman Club and company bull 
sessions, his books seldom held his attention for long, but his 
majors in Spanish and Math are evidence of his academic ability. 
In the area of sports Val was a great competitor in batt boxing, 
company football and softball, though his memories of batt 
boxing are less distinguishing than the others. With the desire Val 
has we who know him are sure he will be one of the Navy's finest 


Scrapps has limited his interests while at the Academy to four 
categories: the Scuba Club, sleep, chow and girls from Maryland. 
Studying has not always been his favorite subject. He feels that his 
most worthwhile experience was the summer he spent as a Plebe 
squad leader. But all has not been golden, he has been accused of 
"oiling his own wheels of progress" and even trying to get a Plebe 
to restrict for him! If the present looks cloudy, Scrapps future 
appears eclipsed, but his friends feel that the sun shines even upon 
the least deserving and come what may, Scrapps will be forever in 
the hearts of his classmates as the nicest guy they know. 


Stan came to Navy from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts after 
deciding that he didn't want to attend Holy Cross because "the 
discipline was too strict". A star in high school football, Stan 
passed up plebe ball but did manage to get in a year with the 
one-fifties before settling down to intramurals where he's been a 
standout in fieldball. Academics rarely give Shus any problems. In 
fact, he probably has the highest QPR point per pad-hour ratio 
than any man in the class. Wherever there's a crowd or a party, 
look in the middle of the activity and Stan will be there. What ever 
branch of service Stan chooses, it will be getting the finest the 
Academy has to offer. 


As Walt's distinctive accent and the destination of his every 
weekend indicates, his hometown is Philadelphia. He came to 
USNA from Father Judge High School. At Navy he found a new 
challenge in the form of Brigade boxing. If his afternoons weren't 
spent ducking and throwing punches, you could find him out 
kicking a soccer ball around for Coach Warner. Academics were 
the only thing that could take Walt away from his Johnny Rivers 
albums. His persistent studying made his room the company 
"gouge" center. "Dennis the Menace", as Walt came to be known 
on Plebe Summer Detail, never stops. This sort of vitality should 
make him a success anywhere. 


A campus resident from Huntington, Long Island, Tag came 
with a military school background and was really ready for Navy. 
After a top-notch job as a plebe, "Winkle" was voted into the 
weekend club and remained a member in good standing most of 
the following year. He rowed for the plebe lightweight crew and 
has played football, rugby and fieldball. On Sundays, Tag dis- 
turbed the tranquility of the Catholic Choir and spent the rest of 
the week working hard on his Foreign Affairs and Portuguese 
minors. But this did not keep him from the Buds' parties and he'll 
be remembered especially for his sense of humor and that 
distinctive laugh. Congratulations, Navy Line, he's yours! 


Two weeks after graduating from high school in Annandaie, 
Virginia Larry, a hard charging Navy Junior, began his encounter 
with plebe year. Most of this year found him in vigorous exercise, 
both in a crew sheel and in upperclass rooms. Perseverance payed 
off, however, and Youngster Year he became noted as the owner 
of one of the largest and loudest sound collections in the 
company. Being a practically minded aero minor, Larry spent 
many study hours constucting model airplanes, rather than merely 
studying on the subject. Also something of a ladies' man, Larry 
was rarely seen without a date on the weekends. His mature 
judgment and sense of humor will make him a welcome addition 
to the fleet.

Many words of thanks were spoken by us Plebe sumnner that next 
to each of our names the connputer had typed a 34. Club 34 was not 
exactly the tightest company in the Brigade, a characteristic we all 
managed to learn in our first two years. Second class year brought us 
to our new home in the second battalion. It was a big change, and not 
for the better. Our firsties had a new move for us at formations called 
a "dress right", and we were slow to learn. Our rings came in, June 
Week came and went, and we found ourselves in the driver's seat. A 
certain Lieutenant will attest to the fact that we have not exactly 
maintained ironclad discipline, but we have all managed to survive the 
ordeal. All that is left now is graduation, and for half our number — 
June weddings. 


LT J. H. Tenbrook, USN 



Coming straight to the Academy from the small burg of Con- 
nel, Washington, Andy brought an intensely inquisitive mind bent 
on coping with whatever the East and Navy had to offer. His 
efforts were well invested in the field of Mathematics and he was 
continuously rewarded with fine marks. He devoted his time as 
manager to the football team and was known for his enthusiastic 
participation in batt fencing, fieidball, company knockabouts, 
German Club and the Public Relations Committee. All his abilities 
and interests, coupled with his personality, suggest a highly color- 
ful and successful career. 


Coming to the Academy from Youngstown, Ohio the big 
fullback from Struthers High School had a bright future ahead of 
him with the Blue Team. His driving power had produced four 
touchdowns for the Plebes when he was crippled by a knee injury 
which was to end his football career. A hard man to keep down. 
Chick transferred his talents to the party circuit where his exploits 
earned him the admiration of classmates and OOD's alike. When 
not in the weight room or at a restriction muster, he could be 
found improving his Superintendent's List academic performance 
by the horizontal method. Chick's determined but easy manner 
makes him a natural leader, who will be a welcome addition 
wherever his future takes him. 


Dan came to USNA from Alabama not knowning much about 
Navy life. He quickly adapted to the ways of a midshipman, and 
came to be a true friend to many. Those who got to really know 
Dan knew that, although he never excelled in academics, he made 
his trademark a smile and a friendly word. Although he worked 
hard to achieve his academic goals, Dan still participated actively 
in the finer things, though never letting them interfere with his 
professional growth, which has provided him with a sound foun- 
dation upon which to build a fine naval career. 


The "BRECKER" as known to some, brought the soul and 
blues of St. Louis with him to USNA. Never one to let academics 
or the system interfere with his hair, music or sleeping, he took 
out plenty of time for relaxation and enjoyment. On the athletic 
field. Bill was recognized as a tough scrapper who was a big factor 
in football and basketball victories. Also known as "The Poli- 
tician," Bill was at his best in political science, and will undoubt- 
edly bolster the American political scene in the future. His great 
drive and enthusiasm will make him one of the finest of avaiators 
to come out of Pensacola. 


The most well known man to come from Libertyville, Illinois 
since Adiai Stevenson, Ken came to the Academy right out of high 
school. He quickly adjusted to the academic challenge and was on 
the Superintendent's List . . . once. Never letting his studies con- 
sume too much of his time, he could usually be found on those 
long fall and winter evenings pursuing the hobby for which he was 
to become world-renowned — philately. Known for his outgoing 
personality, "The Rija" could usually be found with a smile on his 
face; that is, if he wasn't snuggled under the covers. A keen 
interest in athletics led him to great success on the company 
lightweight football and Softball teams. Ken's quick wit and easy 
laugh made him many friends throughout the Brigade and his love 
for Navy Air should make him an instant success in that field. 



Tom calls Mansfield, Massachusetts, his home and continually 
astounds us every so often with one of his Eastern pronunciations. 
A fierce competitor on the athletic field, Tom has a lot of natural 
ability and could always be found in the middle of a football or 
basketball game. Never having had a long line outside his door 
waiting for academic help, "Cruise" did have a few brief bouts 
with the academic department, but he usually came out on top 
thanks to being well rested. One of the most personable guys 
around, Tom knew 90% of the class on a first name basis. With his 
ability to get along with just about anybody and possessing an 
excellent attitude, Tom is a sure success in the Navy. 


"Little Frankie" traded the coaching of Jack Fletcher for the 
coaching of Dick Brown and Joe Duff and certainly left his mark 
on Navy baseball. Frankie had varied interests. He could box, 
wrestle, and street fight with the best of them and then write a 
sweet sonnet to read to his lady friends in the eve. Frank's easy 
going nature and his "Gosh darnit, how the hell are you" attitude 
made him one of the best known and liked of his classmates. 
Never wearing stars, though he had them in his eyes, fearing not 
the system, the academics nor the tomorrows, Frankie proved to 
be the best in the match against all. 





An Air Force "Junior", Carl came to Navy from nearby 
Vienna, Virginia. When he wasn't out on the links, you could 
usually find him working hard at academics. Though he managed 
to shoot par on the golf course, when it came to his studies a few 
bogies always seemed to pop up. During the off-season he com- 
peted with the company lightweights. Always an active member of 
the Public Relations Committee, he was elected Secretary-Trea- 
surer for his first class year. Carl has always been cheerful and easy 
going. With this attitude and his dogged spirit, he will follow on to 
a rich and rewarding career no matter what line he follows. 


Tim came to the Academy from Wilmington, Delaware where 
he graduated second in his class at Corpus Christi High School. A 
consistent member of the Dean's or Superintendent's List, he had 
little difficulty with academics and displayed a willingness to help 
his classmates whenever asked for aid. Tim found plenty of time 
to participate in company sports and to help the batt handball 
team to a Brigade Championship. Tim, or "Doc", kept himself 
busy on the weekends by concentrating on his extracurricular 
activities of girl watching. The afternoons usually found him 
running, sleeping or playing with his cherished tape recorder. 
Tim's ability to apply himself and do his best will guarantee his 
success in whatever he may choose. 

I k 


Jim came to the Academy from Central Dauphin East High in 
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where he almost single handedly ran the 
whole school. Although he didn't quite control everything here at 
USNA, no one can say he didn't try. He was president of the 
Public Relations Committee, Company Representative, Lucky Bag 
Representative, Brigade Activities Representative and a perennial 
member of the German Club. Never one to burn the midnight oil, 
"Higgs" still managed to make the Superintendent's List every 
semester. How he did it remains a mystery to all and still he was 
never too busy to help a classmate with academics or pass up a 
bull session. Likewise, athletics posed no problems for the"Higg" 
as he was a four year veteran of the batt tennis, company football 
and Softball teams. Jim's great spirit and friendly attitude will 
surely lead him past even the most challenging tasks in future 

Hilby came to the Academy from Tampa, Florida after a year 
at Clemson University. After three years of strained relations with 
the Academic Board he decided to leave the party circuit and turn 
over a new leaf with the five year program. Diggin' football more 
than food, John slimmed down from 200 to 150 pounds and then 
fullbacked the 150 lb. football team to two national champion- 
ships and two victories over Army. After you got John out of the 
weight room, you would find him shooting for that star in 
academics. Whether or not he can get his dumbbells in that Marine 
green Phantom II you'll see him set the sky on fire with his 
unquenchable thirst for perfection in life. 



Mike graduated from Palmetto Senior High in Miami, Florida 
and came to the Academy via two years in the Naval Air Reserves. 
Being "Miami born and Miami bred," Mike loved to surf, water ski 
and skin dive. While at Navy, however, he excelled in such new 
sports as company fieldball, battalion tennis and weightlifting, 
where he held seven records in two weight classes. Mike, who was 
a German major and president of the German Club, spent many 
tireless hours buried in German books of all sorts. His efforts, 
however, were not to go unrewarded as he received the German 
foreign exchange cruise. Mike's strong personality, friendly 
warmth and knack for handling respons'rbility will carry him far in 
whatever career he pursues. 


"Forehead" came to Annapolis from the thriving metropolis of 
Lorain, Ohio where he starred as a three sport man, football, 
basketball and baseball. Upon arriving at the Academy, he decided 
to concentrate on football and has finally made it to the top. 
Tom, being the dedicated hard worker he is, would not let any- 
thing stand in his way when it came to academics. He has managed 
to excel in this field with the exception of a single "F". and still 
goes to bed right after dinner every night. The posessor of an 
outgoing personality, his quick smile and sincerity have made him 
many friends throughout the Brigade. Tom's competitive spirit 
was evident in every sport he attempted, as he excelled in com- 
pany basketball and Softball. Whatever service selection the Fore- 
head makes, he will be a welcome addition to any branch. 


Bill, or "Laser" as he's probably better known, came to the 
Naval Academy from Aurora, Illinois. He spent most of his early 
life on the muddy Fox River where he gained a great affection for 
small craft. This was carried over to the Naval Academy where Bill 
spent four years as a stalwart of the YP Squadron. As a student 
Bill plugged and chugged his way to a Mechanical Engineering 
minor and several semesters landed on the Superintendent's List, 
with NO help from the EH&G Department. Bill's musical interests 
can be summarized by the letter "B": Beach Boys, Beatles and 
Buckinghams. Bill's hard working attitude and loyalty will make 
him a welcomed member on any "Navy team." 


"Bobolish", as he is affectionately known came staggering in 
from the land of Schlitz . . . Milwaukee. A year in the Fleet and a 
year at NAPS conditioned him for the rigors of USNA life. Never 
at his best with Russian, he finally found courses to his liking and 
stars to his credit. Recognized among his classmates as a man with 
sound judgement, he often was there to give sound advice when 
needed. Bob got the Schlitz out of his system by consistently 
hurdling to first place on the track team, and by passing out at the 
Army parties at night. Surely, Bob has found at USNA many of 
those fine attributes which will enable him to lead a fine life. 


"Mac" came to the Naval Academy from York, Pennsylvania, 
to follow in the footsteps of his father, a former Marine from the 
Class of '45. Before becoming a Mid, he attended Georgetown 
Prep High School in Washington, D.C. At the Academy Mac 
actively participated in the Public Relations Committee, the 
German Club and the Brigade Hop Committee. He proved to be an 
invaluable asset to the company football, basketball and Softball 
teams and he was a team leader in all these sports. Never one to 
lose any sleep over academics, he concentrated on a minor in 
German. With his quiet determination, Mac is destined to serve his 
country well, whether he chooses the Navy or the Marine Corps. 



No one knows where the name came from but, for to all who 
knew him, Jim will always be remembered as "the moleman." 
Coming to Navy from N. Adams, Massachusetts, Jim lost no time 
in winning everybody with his constant laugh and outgoing per- 
sonality. He always seemed to have better luck with the cards or 
the one-armed bandits than with the books and only seldom did 
he miss any small opportunity to grab a little pad time. He passed 
many a study hour in bull sessions and many a weekend at parties, 
where he was both a familiar and a welcome sight. His friendliness 
and warmth, coupled with a competitive attitude and a close 
attention to detail, insure that Jim will be a popular and welcome 
addition to the Fleet. 


Mike, aptly christened "the Indian" mostly due to the prom- 
inence of his "red neck", was born a traveler. As a wandering 
scholar he pursued courses of study from Bangkok, Thailand to 
Vienna, Virginia, where he graduated from high school in 1964. 
The Navy worked its charm and Mike enlisted, serving a year as a 
FT prior to entering USNA. Leaving his lacrosse stick on the 
reservation, he picked up soccer and "melon" ball with amazing 
skill and enthusiasm, not to mention his prowess on the football 
field, a la company level. His quick wit, coy mannerisms, and 
bountiful knowledge, professional and otherwise, will earmark him 
for bigger and better things when he returns to the fleet, and can 
only bring a tear to the eye of Mother B as she watches the "last 
of the Mohigans" leave his home of the past four years. 


Gary decided that life on the Severn was for him after spending 
a year at St. Louis University. "The Blade", a proud son of St. 
Louis, was always ready to defend it against every challenge and 
usually won. While at the Academy Gary contributed his talents to 
Plebe and batt wrestling and was a member of the Brigade Cham- 
pionship team. Not one to restrict himself to a single field, he also 
took an active part in company fieldball and Softball, where he 
gained a reputation for his fierce competitive spirit. When it came 
time to study, Gary used this same drive to overcome the chal- 
lenges of the Academic Departments, and was a member of the 
Superintendent's List. 


Perk came to the Academy directly from Cherry Hill High 
School, New Jersey. Throughout, he managed to correspond with 
the Superintendent more times than he would like to remember. 
Vectors and equations led Perk into difficulty, such was not the 
case with his major, Portuguese, in which he received an A in every 
course and the Brazilian foreign exchange cruise. An excitable 
type. Perk took his excess energy into the intramural boxing ring. 
Not to be monopolized by one sport, he also played company 
soccer and football. As the many pictures under his blotter will 
attest, Perk is headed for an aviation career; with his enthusiasm 
and energy, he is surely going to be one of the best. 


Ron came to the Academy directly from high school from 
sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. From the start Academy life never gave 
"Railroad" much trouble. With a minimum time spent studying, 
straight A's were the rule rather than the exception, easily attain- 
ing his major in Electrical Engineering. Stars became a permanent 
part of his uniform. Ron was equally at ease in the sports depart- 
ment. From September to March he could most likely be found in 
the pool where he won his "N" as a varsity diver. The rest of the 
year he spent a little less strenuously as a member of the company 
Softball team. Ron's quick mind, friendly personality and willing-

The "Ace", as he is called by classmates, hails from Chicago. 
One need only know the "Ace" for a short while to realize why he 
is called that. His ability to attack any problem astounds many. 
Frank is one of those individuals who never leaves a job unfin- 
ished. His choice in clothes, drink, cars, women and all the other 
essentials is impeccable. His professional capabilities are equal to 
those of the most outstanding young men in the service today. 
Frank will have an outstanding career in any branch of the Navy. 



Billy Castel Sauls, a die-hard rebel, came to Navy from the 
ranks of Bullis Prep as a tremendous athlete with a fondness for 
beer, women and conflict. Not known for his tranquil qualities, 
Billy is a good man to have on your side when the hands start 
flying. Called "Bad Leg" by his baseball teammates because of a 
hamstring injury which shortened a baseball career which could 
have been nothing short of great, Billy turned his attentions to 
company Softball where he was an instant star. The proverbial 
sailor with a girl in every port (due to his charm and good looks), 
Billy can't miss as a hell raisin' officer. 


Mike had a head start on a naval career by the time he got to 
USNA after 2% years in the Fleet and a brief stop at NAPS. Mike 
fell into the routine of Academy life and soon came to the 
conclusion that anything over a 2.00 was wasted pad time. Smitty 
or "Deacon" as he was known to many, found that life at Navy 
was simply a necessary evil that interrupted his scuba, fishing and 
hunting trips back home in Florida. Mike was one of the stalwarts 
on the company soccer team and was also active in other company 
sports and scuba club. Mike's maturity and initative will serve him 
well upon graudation. He will be a welcome and respected addi- 
tion to any command under which he serves. 


Tommie, or "the pink pad baby," as he was affectionately 
called by both of his friends, spent many hours searching for 
lumps in his pillow. Not one to give up easily, even chiding from 
his classmates could not roust him. Once out of the pad, however, 
Tommie has a sarcastic wit that few can keep from smiling at. 
Tom's sports included heavyweight football, Softball and his favor- 
ite: soccer. Many Saturday nights Tommy could be found re- 
memorizing his Lettermen tape, thinking of his girl, and home in 
North Caldwell, New Jersey. Tom studied diligently of Math, wires 
and his minor. Weapons. His unwillingness to turn in a half done 
or sloppy project will easily carry him through any field he 


After spending seventeen years in his hometown of Havre, 
' Montana, Russ decided to see what big city life was like and made 
the long journey to Annapolis, bringing with him the desire to 
excel in both academics and athletics. Never one to disdain the 
merits of a good bull session, "Berg" could be found most any 
night in a classmate's room discussing the merits of a Naval career 
over civilian life. Although academics never gave him trouble, he 
spent many nights burning the midnight oil after using the after- 
noon for some worthwhile pad time and study hour for one of 
those horizontal-expanding bull sessions. Demonstrating great 
prowess on the athletic field he lettered in 1 50 pound football and 
also supported the company fieldball and battalion water polo 
teams. He also found time for the Foreign Relations Club, NAFAC 
and N Club. With all these attributes Russ is certain to be a success 
In any field. 


"Wolf ... a swift-footed, crafty, rapacious animal . . ." Webster 
didn't even come close! Rick came to us from the sandy beaches 
of Miami, Florida. When he took time off from the hum-drum 
activities of academic life, he participated in many of the rougher 
sports; varsity football, fieldball or weightlifting. Rick corre- 
sponded regularly with Admiral Kauffman and the academic de- 
partment but in his usual daring style which has brought a few 
seven no-trump bids to light, he managed to walk the 2.0 tightrope 
without any serious falls. Like Miami, Rick has a sunny person- 
ality that has gained him many friends. There's no doubt in 
anyone's mind that the fleet will be a much happier place with the 
addition of Rick Wolf. 


Yat was considered a worthwhile athletic entry from Hicks- 
ville. Long Island by the Academy. He proved them right with 
four outstanding lacrosse seasons in which Coach Bilderback 
managed to turn the "Greek" into a lean, hungry sort. Out-of- 
season lacrosse and company heavyweight football accounted for 
his time in the fall and winter sets. In spite of many differences 
with Weapons Department's computers, he maintained a very 
healthy QPR and was noted for his flair with Math. His tremen- 
dous energy and easy going approach to life suggest an equally 
successful future.

Known to only a select few as "the Wop" Tony hails from 
Smithtown, Long Island, but knows "the City" like the back of 
his hand. He attended Columbian Prep before coming to the 
Academy where he was active in sports and carried baseball into 
his first two years. A night was never complete till you walked 
into Tony's chateau to find 4 pepperoni hanging from the ceiling. 
While the wop has accomplished much here and will be long 
remembered he's probably best known for his love of "the shing", 
sports cars, and a ravishing redhead. An avid love of planes and an 
unquenchable thirst for the wide open spaces will prepare Tony 
for a fine successful career in Navy air. 


Being an Air Force Junior, Jim had several opportunities to 
travel, but not too much choice where he went to. Nonetheless, he 
managed to get to Japan for two years, followed by two years in 
Hawaii, then three years in California where he spent one year at 
the University of California, Berkeley. While he was at Cal, he 
received his appointment to the Academy from SecNav; so he put 
away his picket sign and joined the Navy. His present plans call for 
him to go to flight school in order to fly phantoms and, eventually 
get into the astronaut corps. 


"Bo" came to the Academy from Huntington, Long Island, 
New York. Since he joined the Brigade, John has made a lasting 
impression on those around him. One of Navy's best, John proved 
his prowess on the athletic fields earning varsity letters in both 
soccer and lacrosse for three consecutive years. A gifted student, 
"Bo" didn't allow athletics to rule his life. His enviable drive and 
enthusiasm earned him a major in Applied Science, despite several 
major skirmishes with the wires department. A true individual, 
John will be remembered around here for his undying sincerity 
and those bright blue eyes that were forced to open daily to the 
sound of reveille. 


Bob had dreamed of coming to the Naval Academy since he 
was a little swab in Trumbull, Connecticut. In high school he 
joined the Naval Reserve. Finally his dreams came true and he got 
his appointment to the Academy. Bob — now a career man all the 
way — has excelled in both academics and sports here at the 
Academy. A cross country man turned sailor, he has shed his 
enlightenment on many of us. Wherever Bob was, excitement was 
sure to at least follow. Nights would usually find Bob burning the 
night oil studying Physics or trying to find a date — but "Eagle" 
always got his eight hours daily whether in class or on a date. With 
ability like this, he could only go far in the Navy. 



Gale came to the Academy from the small Midwestern town of 
Storm Lake, Iowa, where his academic and athletic achievements 
prepared him well for life as a midshipman. While at the Academy, 
he has shown a keen interest in both his academic and professional 
development. He has been active in Antiphonal Choir, has been in 
the Masquaerders and has had an interest in scuba diving during his 
four years here. Determination to excel, a genuine desire to learn, 
and much ability are the factors that have contributed consider- 
ably to his previous success and will assure his future success as an 
officer. He has set his goals high but those who know him realize 
that he will achieve them. 


John came to the Academy after a year at Michigan Tech. His 
excellent academic work set him near the top of the class, earned a 
major in Theoretical Mathematics and earned him the honor of 
being a Trident Scholar. He not only worked hard but played hard 
on the tennis courts as a member of the plebe and varsity tennis 
teams. Other interests included: reading, scuba diving and almost 
any outdoor activity; all of which he pursued avidly during his 
leaves. John plans to continue his education in Mathematics, 
eventually to the Ph.D. level. With his ambition and intelligence, 
this should be no problem. John's friendship will be treasured by 
those who know him long after we graduate. 


Mike, coming straight from Kubasaki High School on Okinawa 
to Navy became the black sheep of his all-Army family and has 
consistently lived up to this title. His outgoing character has 
enabled him to enjoy life at the Academy to its fullest. Although 
he cannot be termed an engineering slash, his knowledge of his 
field of study, history, is enviable. A respect for physical fitness as 
well as academics has proven invaluable in his position as ring man 
on the batt gym team. Due to family background and high regard 
for his country, he has acquired an outstanding attitude toward his 
naval career. This, combined with his great good nature will serve 
to make him an outstanding officer. 


Hawks came from Pensacola, Florida with the thought of Blue 
and Gold on his mind. His professional knowledge of the Navy and 
his devotion to duty still are an integral part of his daily life. 
Coming from the home of Navy Air, it is only natural that he 
pursued a course in Aerospace Engineering and has high hopes of 
flying for the Navy. After a long hard week on the books and 
tennis courts, the weekend finds him playing as hard as he works. 
Dragging his favorite girl and enjoying himself to the fullest gets 
him ready for the next week of academics. His hard driving 
character and his devotion to the Navy are sure to produce a fine 


Chuck realized his life long dream of going to the Naval 
Academy when he left Topeka, Kansas and migrated to the sunny 
shores of the Severn. He quickly began taking an active part in 
Brigade activities and has continued to be an enthusiastic sup- 
porter of the Navy system. Chuck's love of the sea and things 
nautical led him to the sailing squadron where he won a place of 
prominence among the ocean sailors. Chuck will always be remem- 
bered for the exacting standards which he set for himself, espe- 
cially in the professional and academic areas. He lived by the 
credo, if something has to be done, make sure it's done right. 
Chuck's love of the service will carry him far in the Naval Career. 


The call of the sea brought John out of the mountains of 
Reno, Nevada to the salt air of Annapolis. With a flare for high 
living, pretty girls and always a good time, he courted lady luck 
and wrapped her around his ring finger. The extent of Lats' 
interests were boundless, ranging from boxing, skiing and sailing, 
to the more academic areas of electronics, weapons systems and 
navigation. Here was a real, genuine great guy with that ail- 
American look and a smile that could melt ice. With a determi- 
nation that could move Gibraltar and a spontaneous enthusiasm 
and optimism that could never be quelled, Lats has certainly met 
the most difficult requirements for success in whatever he may do. 



In June 1965, Jack, as he is called by his friends, hopped on a 
stage and took a long, dusty trip from Fargo, North Dakota to — 
of all places — USNA. The ride must not have been too uncom- 
fortable, because he decided to minor in Mechanical Engineering 
in hopes of building a better coach. In addition to his academic 
endeavors. Jack also made a successful attempt at sports, especial- 
ly 150 lb. football. After being a live blocking dummy as a 
sophomore, he won an N-star as a junior. So the boy from the wild, 
wild West made good in the East. Jack's perseverance and ability 
to adjust should prove valuable to whichever branch of the Naval 
service he enters. 


"Wej", as he is called by his closest friends, hails from Miami, 
Florida and came to the USNA directly from high school bringing 
with him his athletic prowess. Not one to spend many a weekend 
in the hall pondering over his books, he is always on top of his 
academics. "The Wej" could always be found in the phone rooms 
where he spent many an hour planning a big weekend. An active 
member in athletics, Al was a stalwart on the 150 lb. football 
defensive unit. A true team leader, his competitive spirit and 
athletic ability earned him an N-star his junior year. His friendly 
personality and effervescent spirit are sure to carry him far toward 
a rewarding career in the Naval Service. 


John, who hails from Mt. Lakes, New Jersey spends his free 
time as a live blocking dummy and place kicker for the varsity 1 50 
lb. football team and as a free lance trackman. Academically, he 
wasn't able to ride the curve because he couldn't catch it. Then 
when he finally got close, they did away with it. On weekends, 
you could usually find John checking in and out of the Battalion 
Office (he couldn't outrun the OOW either), or in his rack "dream- 
ing" about a 2.0 or his Vette. John has a serious side too, which 
includes a devotion to the Navy and his country. This deep seated 
devotion to duty should prove a valuable asset to the Naval 


Bill entered the Academy immediately following his graduation 
from high school in Hughesville, Pennsylvania. Being a Marine 
junior he was not particularly surprised at the rigors of the 
transition from the civilian to the military way of life. He made a 
determined effort during his four years to keep abreast of the 
social life, maintain the "good life", and keep his realistic perspec- 
tive — even though his policy at times conflicted with that of the 
Executive Department. Bill's personal interests ranged from quick 
cars and the outdoors to the opposite sex. His abilities and 
common sense will make him an outstanding officer in the years 
to come, and his friendly personality will make him a great man 
with whom to serve. 



Eric, from nearby Arlington, Virginia, came to Navy with blue 
and gold in his eyes, all set to spend the rest of his life in the Navy. 
He quickly calmed down, however, and set out to find out what 
life was really like. A consistently high performer, Sims excelled in 
varsity athletics, academics, and leadership. He didn't let this 
All-American Boy image hold him back, however; he was always 
ready to set out after a good time. Eric's main love of life was 
crew. With his ability to deal with people, both junior and senior 
to him, Eric has a promising career ahead of him. 


Sitting in his lifeguard stand on South Beach, Staten Island, 
young James often conjured up visions of blue and gold. Realizing 
his fondest dreams, our web-footed hero joined the ranks of the 
Brigade with high hopes and tremendous enthusiasm. Jimmy 
optimistically tackled the academics by assuming a Weapons 
major, a task which required superhuman efforts and yielded slim 
results. But undaunted, he spent long hours, slide rule in hand, 
slaving over the books. His affinity for academics is only outdone 
by his attraction to water; Jimmy should have been born with 
gills. Singing and oldie but goodies and dreaming of his blue MGB, 
Jimmy could always be found in the natatorium. Jimmy's bound- 
less energy and competence will benefit the service. 


Jim, a native of Upper St. Clair Township, Bridgeville, Penn- 
sylvania, entered the Academy with the Class of '68, by the grace 
of God and SecNav, after spending a year at Bullis Prep getting his 
grades "up". It took only a year though for Jim and the academic 
board to decide that '69 would be more fun. Since then, Jim has 
excelled (?) in academics especially Bull, where he was always 
good, particularly in history. His athletic prowess has been dis- 
played in intramural football, soccer, lacrosse and swimming sub 
squad. This young man's perseverance and determination should 
be a very valuable asset to the Naval Service and to that special 
someone who has been patiently waiting for the past BYi years. 


Sully hails from Silver Spring, Maryland, and was graduated 
from St. John's College High School in Washington, D.C. Fighting 
off the Executive Department on one hand and the academic 
deparments on the other, Sully seemed to never let the system get 
the best of him. When not out sailing one of the Academy yawls, 
he could be found either in the pad or lining up a date for the 
coming weekend. A ward of the EH&G Department, term papers 
were his nemesis. His broad smile and easy-going manner will stand 
him in good stead where ever he goes and whatever his endeavor. 


A native of Paterson, New Jersey, Tom came to USNA via 
Bullis Prep. After a year as a member of the plebe football team, 
Tom decided to devote all his time and energy to his studies. 
Academics were no easy thing for him, but with great skill he 
managed to stay one step ahead of the board. Swimming, a basic 
requirement for a sailor of the high seas, was one of Tom's strong 
points which was evident by the many hours he spent in the 
instruction pool. Of the many positions Tom held, the most 
important was I. CO. P. (in charge of Pepperoni). A great girl, a 
fine career in aviation and opportunities untold await this easiest 
going guy in the company.

The members of "the dirty dozen '69" leave behind them many 
varied memories and impressions. The playboys and partiers always 
managed to find or create excitement and fun, with their frequent "D. 
C. runs" often ending up at a certain American U. sorority. The 
raucous Notre Dame youngster juicer and the wardroom segundo beer 
blast were events that attest to these stalwart young men's efforts to 
loosen tensions without tightening the system. 

After successive burning-of-the-day ceremonies service selection 
rolled around, and magically five Marines appeared, the sane balance 
of twelve going about evenly into the other branches of naval service. 
One of the better "cliques" of the labyrinthine complex of Bancroft 
Hall, the dirty dozen will well remember times spent together as they 
reflect over the past days of Academy life.

Rick came to the Academy from Pennsauken, New Jersey. 
Although not an aspiring scholar, his enthusiasm and sense of 
humor have kept him in good standing in spite of the academic 
department. Never one to let time slip by neglected by idleness. 
Rick was always busy with some project; the biggest one being 
acquisition of a complete stereo system. His many interests in- 
clude sports cars and marlinspike seamanship. An avid sailor. Rick 
has spent many a weekend on the Chesapeake. A strong appreci- 
ation for good music led him to membership in the Chapel Choir. 
Rick's sincerity and dedication to duty are characteristics which 
promise to produce a naval officer who is a credit to himself and 
to the class of 1969. 


The transition from his small pond in New Jersey to the ocean 
of Annapolis affected Ed's performance very little. He came to us 
straight from high school with laurels and a determination to 
achieve his place in life in all fields. Partially due to his last period 
rallies, he has had a very impressive record, with consistent Super- 
intendent's Lists academically, participation in plebe and varsity 
football and winning his "N" in wrestling. He has allowed no facet 
of personal growth to go undeveloped and is well liked and 
respected by all with whom he comes in contact. His plans after 
graduation are narrowing as selection time approaches and with his 
potential, any branch will benefit from his joining their ranks. 


Bert arrived at Navy from the midwestern town of Aurora, 
Illinois. His athletic ability made plebe year a little easier, as he 
played football and wrestled on the frosh teams. As the years 
passed, Bert tried hard to remain dedicated to his studies, in order 
to keep up with his demanding Applied Science minor. Friendship 
was a quality that he easily shared with others, especially members 
of the opposite sex. Having fun was one of Bert's primary goals at 
USNA, and whether the joke was on him or someone else, you 
could count on hearing his well known laugh. After leaving the 
Severn Shores, the fleet will gain a truly dependable and career 
motivated Naval Officer. 


Although Chuck came directly to the Academy after gradu- 
ation from a small town high school in Sedro Woolley, Washing- 
ton, Navy life was not really new to him. Chuck spent two years in 
the reserves preparing for his new way of life. Noted for his 
academic achievements in high school, he also developed into a 
fine all-around athlete while here at the Academy especially excel- 
ling in handball. Always ready with a smile. Chuck was one of the 
popular members of the company. His scholastic prowess enabled 
him to maintain a good average and to help troubled classmates. 
Chuck's enthusiasm and motivation will be his greatest assets 
throughout his career. 


Dusty came to the Naval Academy after a year at Manhattan 
College. Although he was used to the easy life of a college student, 
he quickly adapted the system to his way and handled plebe year 
with no trouble. Dins liked the Bull Department but never got 
along too well with the others. In sports he looks back on 
battalion boxing followed by some hard work in Brigade Boxing. 
Dusty's many leisure hours were spent over a hot tape recorder 
and turn table searching for that old sound. With his easy going 
personality and sense of humor. Dusty will have an interesting 


Bill came to USNA from NAPS which, he claimed, rhymed 
with SAPS. Everyone soon found out, though, that whatever truth 
there was to that statement, it didn't apply to "garbs". With 
characteristic diligence, he made it through that first year and 
laughed his way to a physics minor in the next three years. But he 
worked hard while he laughed and proved to the academic depart- 
ment that he really did know something. What we'll always re- 
member most about Bill, though, is his contagious sense of humor. 
Whenever a guy felt low. Bill was ready with a few insults that 
would crack you up and, thanks to Bill, you were soon laughing at 



Rog, a Navy junior, calls the foothills of the Blue Ridge 
Mountains near Charlottesville, Virginia his home. A hard worker, 
he kept a safe lead on the academic department. However, main- 
taining a great dislike for Sampson Hall he fought a continuous 
four year battle with the Skinny Department. Out of the academic 
world Rog was a member of the Gun Club and the backbone of his 
company sports with fieldball and softball his specialities. 
"Hendy" could often be seen running on Farragut Field at the 
crack of dawn, keeping in shape. Rog always held his professional 
duties among the most important things at the Academy. His 
dedication and hard working manner will make him a credit to the 


Hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ted came to the Acad- 
emy bringing with him an outstanding record of athletics and 
school leadership from Montour High School. A Big Ten League 
All-Star and member of the AII-W.P.I.A.L. football team, Ted 
quickly put his football talents to work for the Navy team winning 
a varsity N during his Youngster year. Academically he was a hard 
worker and was rewarded by making the Superintendent's List 
several times. The enviable qualities of his outstanding character 
are the assets with which Ted will embark on his career. His 
journey, wherever it may take him, cannot but be rewarding and 


When Bruce came to Annapolis in June of 1965, he discovered 
that Academy life was a far cry from the carefree high school days 
he had enjoyed in Clearwater, Florida. Always active in sports, 
Bruce especially enjoyed playing rugby with a capital "R". As for 
extracurricular activities, you could find him doing almost any- 
thing — wheeling and dealing for the Lucky Bag, NACA and 
hitching flights to Florida. Bruce's kind of friendship is something 
that's not easy to find and not easy to lose. Whatever field he 
chooses to enter, he will be a credit to himself and to the Navy. 
But first in his thoughts is his fiancee. Sherry and their plans for a 
June Week wedding. 


Tim, known to all as "Mac", was raised in Georgia and is 
mighty proud of it, just ask him. He decided to follow in his 
father's footsteps and become a naval officer and since there is no 
Naval Academy in Georgia, he came here. Even though Tim may 
have lost a few battles with the academic and Executive Depart- 
ments, he never lost an argument. His greatest asset is his confi- 
dence; whether it is on the rugby field, or starting a term paper 
two hours late, he does it with confidence. The Navy will be 
getting a fine officer and one they certainly will never forget. 



Bob's main objective since he left Camp Lejeune, North Caro- 
lina has been to return there wearing not blue but green. Everyone 
that knows Bob would agree that he will succeed, since he is 
known for his ambition and ability to excel in all that he under- 
takes. Bob has been a consistent member of the Dean's List and he 
stands in the top five per cent of his class. Along with playing 
plebe squash. Bob has been a standout in intramural sports. 
Known among his classmates as one who frequently expounds on 
the finer aspects of a naval life, Bob's exceptional personality and 
maturity have made him many good friends. The Corps will indeed 
benefit from his outstanding attributes. 


Mike came to the Naval Academy after spending one year at 
Old Dominion College in Norfolk, Virginia. He found plebe year 
quite an experience and his more than ready smile earned him the 
dubious distinction of being the first one fried in his class. Even 
though academics were a constant source of anxiety for "Mic", he 
always found a girl with whom to worry when the weekend came. 
Mike spent many hours wrestling on the varsity squad, swimming 
with the scuba club and misappropriating chow from the messhall. 
Although undecided as to his service preference, Mike's love of the 
military and pride in himself will make him a success no matter 
which branch he chooses. 



Dione came to the Academy from the Phillipines with the 
special challenge of facing a completely new way of Mfe. He made 
the transition not only from the civilian to the military but also 
from the Asian outlook to the American orientation with great 
success. Taking overloads, he managed to go for two majors: one 
in Politics and Economics and the other in Applied Science. 
Despite his demanding academic program, he has kept a consistent 
place in both the Superintendent's and the Dean's Lists. Based on 
what he did here, we are confident that he has a promising future 
with the Philippine Navy. 


Bill came to the Academy from high school in Binghamton, 
New York. After fighting it out with the academic department 
plebe year. Bill discovered that grades are directly proportional to 
sleep and thus made Superintendent's List Youngster year. With 
this new found secret Bill continued to excel academically the 
next three years. Outside of class Bill was active in the Antiphonal 
Choir, a member of the Gun Club, and played company football, 
soccer, basketball and Softball. Always ready for a good "work- 
out", Morgs could be found on rainy days stretched out on the 
mat in Macdonough Hall, counting the panes of glass in the roof. 
Bill's intelligence, quick thinking and friendly manner should all 
help him to become an outstanding Naval officer. 


During his four years here Doug has compiled few major titles 
or honors, but he does hold many a minor claim to fame not a few 
with which involve his prestige and monetary lucretive achieve- 
ment on the links and the arm wrestling pit. His casual, devil may 
care is just a thin veneer hiding a conscientious attitude in all 
facets of Academy life, except perhaps academics. Doug's amazing 
reading list is extensive and ranged from science fiction to novels 
and supercedes all more scholarly pursuits. Only one aspect of 
Doug's life here reveals his avid reading and that is his oldie record 
collection — played on his oldie stereo which he claims will 
become a negatively accelerating mass on graduation day — from 
the fourth deck of Mother B. 


A native of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, Dave began his college 
career at the University of Mississippi on an NROTC scholarship. 
Since coming to the Academy he has shown a variety of talents. 
Selecting a ship propulsion minor and adding many electives, Dave 
has maintained a good average, repeatedly finding himself on the 
Dean's and Superintendent's Lists. A responsible attitude earned 
him the position of advertising manager of the LUCKY BAG and 
he has been active in other class functions. Afternoons found 
"Ovs" helping out his company soccer, football and Softball 
teams, and most of Dave's weekends were spent dragging his girl 
from back home. After graduation, Dave looks forward to a June 
Week wedding and a successful career. 



From the state of Maine and Serenity Hill came "Bullet" with 
several pounds of civilian flab, but after a rigorous Plebe summer it 
was all military flab. After a try at Plebe football Mike restricted 
most of his athletic interests to weightlifting and along with having 
the biggest love handles in the Brigade, he also holds the 1967 
Brigade weightlifting record. Mike made a good showing academ- 
ically too, getting Superintendent's List once. Bullet never spoke 
too much but whenever he said something, it was profound and 
thought provoking. One statement that will always be remembered 
— "When life bites, you gotta bite back." 


Pete came to Navy from the "accent lane" of Fairhaven, 
Massachusetts. He carried an infinite source of humor and a year 
of education from Villanova University. This was more than 
enough to slide Pete through his plebe year. His dedication was 
easily found by either watching the heavyweight crew team row to 
the groans of their fellow oarsman, or seeing him strive for the right 
note at a Glee Club concert. "Peetah" is one of the few Midn who 
has the distinction of earning his "Ritcljie Highway Medal". He 
spent many hours riding both the academic and transportation 
curves to rate this honor. After leaving the "School on the Ches- 
apeake", Uncle Sam will gain a truly outstanding "Nephew" who 
holds many admirable qualities. 


Mike or "Rip" to his friends came to Annapolis from New 
York State and quickly established himself as one of the greatest 
"gedunk" lovers in Naval Academy history. Mike picked up a new 
racquet game, squash, during plebe summer and with a deciated 
effort won his varsity "N" and served as captain of the team. 
During the off season he enjoyed other sports like bowling and 
golf. He did well in academics but was never one to let assignments 
break up a good bridge game. Upon graduation, Mike plans on 
following in the footsteps of his father by earning the gold wings 
of a Naval aviator and there is no doubt that Pensacola will be 
getting one of Navy's best. 


Known to his classmates as "Sedge", Ron hails from West 
Orange, New Jersey where he was known for his swimming 
prowess. A stalwart of the Navy swim team, Ron won his first 
varsity "N" after three years of hard swimming. Sailing, scuba 
diving, surfing and a minor in Naval Architecture complete the list 
of his nautical endeavors. Ron possessed an enviable drive which 
helped him to continually surmount all the difficulties that he ever 
encountered. If there was a job to do you could depend on Ron to 
get it done. Ron's love for the sea is second only to Navy Air 
which is his service selection. He will always be a credit to himself 
and to the service. 


Wes came to Navy after graduating as valedictorian of his class 
at Sheridan High School in Denver, Colorado. Because of his 
scholastic achievement, he was always willing and able to help 
anyone with their academic problems. After plebe year finally 
ended, "Stan" got pinned to that pad monster. He would only 
leave her for his other two loves: the weight machine and spread- 
ing The Good News. Wes was often running around for either 
NACA, the OCU, or the Antiphonal Choir. He also added spirit to 
the multiplicity of company and battalion sports he participated 
in. Wes's good nature, friendliness and willingness to help anyone 
will distinguish him as an officer and leader while flying Navy Air. 


Michael left Hawaii and an outstanding high school record to 
meet new challenges at USNA. He soon gained his footing and 
joined the Brigade Hop Committee to help his classmates meet 
those "Young lovelies." After breezing through plebe year, he 
accepted the tedious tasks of 1969 Lucky Bag Business Manager 
and his much needed file cabinet made his room look like another 
company office. Mike often burned the midnight oil while he 
pumped out the multitude of required term papers for his Foreign 
Affairs minor. For relaxation, he foundered around in the pool, 
but his efforts were not in vain: he swam on both the plebe and 
varsity teams. We know that his capacity for hard work, his love of 
action and his social grace will destine this all around individual to 
success in the Navy. 



Often heard from the depths of the O'Hare Room was the cry 
of Pipes! Pipes! Pipes! where IVIichael and friends spent many a 
smol<e filled afternoon weathering many a storm. Calling Coro- 
nado, California home, young Michael found few places to surf on 
the Severn, so when he wasn't strumming on his guitar or con- 
tently puffing on a friendly calabash, his heart was often dreaming 
of smooth waves on the California coast. In the winter, times were 
spent in the natatorium as a competent performer and "IM" winner 
on the swimming team. The strict discipline of Academy life, 
academics and girls never seemed to phase Michael, as he could 
take them or leave them, which often he did. Michael intends to 
follow in the footsteps of his father as a fine Naval Officer. 


Leaving behind the sun and surf on Honolulu, Greg came to us 
after a year at the University of Hawaii. A man of great will 
power, he has dedicated many hours to the academic routine here 
at Navy; yet always managed to find time to enjoy his pipe and a 
good bull session with the boys. A great competitor, Greg could be 
found enjoying company sports on any afternoon and supporting 
our varsity teams on the weekends. Showing diversity, the 
"kanak" has an outstanding sound system, was on the Ring and 
Crest Committee and will always be remembered for his keen 
professional knowledge. Navy's surface fleet will definitely be 
proud of have Greg join her ranks. 


Ken bounced straight to the Academy from Trenton High 
School in Trenton, New Jersey. Here he developed his new found 
love of sailing on the varsity shields team so well he became 
captain of the team his first class year. A perfectionist. Ken also 
lent his talents to championship battalion lacrosse and handball 
teams. On the Sundays he did not sail. Ken showed his love of 
children by teaching Sunday School. He was also a faithful mem- 
ber of the NACA and OCU. "The Hunk" was always willing to 
help anyone and many nights his studies gave way to counselling 
sessions. His cartoons, and pictures brightened every room he lived 
in. A find Math and Deutsch student. Ken should find great use 
for his qualities as he proves that "Navy Air is mighty fair." 


Young Andrew, a mid-westerner, gentleman and above all, an 
athlete came to the Severn, as the Kenoshans of Wisconsin wished 
him well, with illusions of what a brilliant college career could 
mean for an All-American high school football player. Two years 
later such conservative thinking became disillusionment as Andrew 
abandoned a football career for the spicy life of a weightlifter. He 
soon learned that a pipe, just as a woman, can be a man's best 
friend, and he has often been observed strolling the hallowed 
streets of Annapolis smoking a Calabash, with a sweet young thing 
hooked on one of his massive arms, puffing away contentedly. 
Wherever he goes, easy going Andrew will be a welcome addition 
to the Navy. 


Jim came to the Academy from Verona High, New Jersey as 
the first step towards a Navy Air specialty (thus "Big John" can't 
accept full credit for his enjoyment of segundo summer flight 
training). Scholastically, Jim's interests have been centered in the 
EH& Govt Department, with obvious implications regarding the 
core courses. Winter afternoons would find him with the company 
basketball team, while fall and spring afternoons were reserved for 
cross country (looking toward a third straight N-star season) and 
outdoor track managing. This cramped his participation in the 
AIAA, but not in the Antiphonal Choir. With these demands on 
his time, Jim's thoughts still strayed to Carolyn and the future 
challenge and responsibility offered to a Naval line officer. 


Jack's Reef, in upstate New York, bid a sorrowful goodbye 
when Jim left to "Join the Navy", mainly because his departure 
reduced the village's population to double figures, "Mr. Every- 
thing" at Jordan Elbridge High School, Jim coasted easily into the 
rigors of plebe year and upperclass life, always excelling on the 
athletic field and in the academic classroom. The Superintendent's 
List spotted him now and then, but nothing hindered Diamond 
Jim's almost continued maintenance of slope zero with the pad. A 
true connoisseur of music, he offered stalwart support to the lung 
section of the Drum and Bugle Corps. Wherever he goes and 
whatever he undertakes, Jim will always reflect the highest esteem 
of the Academy and the Naval Service.

This year the First Class have seen throughout the classes in the 
13th Company the greatest assemblage of jocks and studs, and one of 
the worst intramural seasons of their four year tenure. After having 
the NAAA Intercompany Athletic Cup in our possession for four 
years in a row, the 13th Company Firsties dropped the sack this year 
(witness, for instance, the completely defeated soccer season). Perhaps 
the most outstanding characteristic of the 13th Company this year 
was that it was a happy company. The First Class and our zealous 
submariner worked harmoniously together notwithstanding the P-rade 
grades of the 13th Infantry Company. Despite grumblings about The 
Tube, swimming in the Severn in November, and the parking lot 
incident, we were happy; however, things weren't always slack for we 
had our sheriffs. 


LT J. S. Baumstark, USN 



Bals hailed from Madeira High School in Cincinnati, Ohio to 
become a football hero at Navy. A local college even formed the 
Jery Balsly Fan Club after he ran through the green fence at 
practice. A master of nonchalance. Navy jargon and girls, the Bals 
always had a smile and a good word for everyone. Neither regu- 
lation, academics nor defensive tackles slowed him down as he 
eased his way through the four years at the Academy. No B.S. 
session was complete without Whale's well thought out philoso- 
phies. Behind his jovial, easygoing manner is a seriousness and 
dedication that should, along with his strong belief in his personal 
codes, allow Jeri to weather any storm and ride the waves of good 
fortune for the rest of his life. 


John came to the Academy right out of high school in Wilkes- 
Barre, Pennsylvania. Affectionately known as "Boner", he spent 
quite a bit of his time in the 'Ark' in an obvious attempt to defy 
the Academic Dean. Not to be done in by the Dean, Boner 
decided that 69 was better than civilian line. His friendly smile and 
easy going manner made many tough weeks easier for his class- 
mates. His pride and spirit proved him a leader on the intramural 
athletic fields. Not being one to miss a' party, John traveled 
famous Route 50 to D.C. almost as much as Stribling Walk. His 
leadership and friendliness will undoubtedly be an asset as the 
fleet obtains one of our finest after graduation. 


— M— is a man of many paradoxes. He is well known for his 
hard hitting style of football, but off the field, he is jovial and 
easygoing. Probing a little deeper you will find he is also a very 
serious philosopher who runs his life by strict adherence to self 
conceived principles. Although never known to spend long hours 
behind open books, he can argue circles around scholars on any 
subject. Although firm in his convictions his open mind never 
denies the truth of anything until he has thoroughly studied it. 
This, combined with his other abilities, will make him a standout 
among men. 


"How did you get a 't' out of two 'z's?" Although we never did 
really understand, we took Rick's word for it. Retz made the 
transition to Academy life quickly, seeming to encounter fewer 
obstacles than most of us. Although Rick never starred, academics 
held no terror for him, as he was on the Supt's List every semester 
without ever having to work too hard — such an asset is indeed 
invaluble. But only after sharing the Academy's hardships and joys 
with him does one recognize Rick's most outstanding qualities: his 
easy-going personality, loyalty and pride in a job well done, made 
him an excellent roommate and a lasting friend. 


The Dodger found his way to us barefoot from a little borough 
located in a crevice in the Rockies. Likeable and enthusiastic, he 
quickly gained the respect of his classmates. His round and jovial 
face, cowboy hat and boots, and his thirst for the finer things that 
midshipmen life had to offer made him a natural leader. Aca- 
demics were an ease as he even once managed a 4.0. The Navy is 
the Dodger's calling and he will serve with distinction. His natural 
ease among all people, initiative and resourcefulness will aid him 
greatly. To Kenner we all wish a life of smooth sailing. 


Andy entered Navy Tech with a driving ambition to become a 
Naval Officer. His love for the Navy continues to grow and not 
even the Doctors can sever his desires. He energetically strives for 
perfection in everything from sports to teaching his kindergarten 
Sunday school class and settles for nothing less than his best. His 
best is only emphasized by the beauty of the girls which keep him 
company. Andy is a manager from the word go! I From the depths 
of Luce Hall he has learned well the inter-workings and hidden 
mechanisms of what keeps the Navy going. His ambition, knowl- 
edge and love of the service promise a bright career for this fine 
officer and gentleman. 



Wayne, better known as "Wedge," came to USNA directly 
from East Aurora High School in New York. Coming from a long 
line of Naval officers, Wayne adapted easily to Academy life 
excelling in all he attempted academically, professionally and 
athletically. Batt. squash, Softball and heavyweight football were 
among his interests during the academic months. A Navy man at 
heart, "Wedge" kept in the highest traditions of the service by 
maintaining a girl from virtually every port during the summer 
cruises. Upon his return to the academic routine, however, Wayne 
managed to focus his attention on one port as well as one special 
girl. The Plebe Detail occupied most of his 2/c Summer, however, 
Wayne was exposed to Navy Air, his chosen field. Wherever he 
goes, Wayne's personality and professionalism will aid him in his 
Naval career. 


Joe came to the Naval Academy after graduating from Chicora 
High School and a year at the College of Charleston. A native of 
Charleston Heights, South Carolina, Joe was the first of his family 
to follow the sea. His rather quiet and attentive character gave the 
appearance of a studious individual, though he tried to deny it. An 
avid sports fan, Joe became a mainstay on the company touch 
football and Softball teams. He was never known to turn down an 
opportunity to go fishing or hunting. Joe's ability to apply himself 
and do his best will guarantee his success in what ever he may 


The genius you see in this picture hails from the shores of 
Phoenix, Arizona. Between academic boards, E.I., and restriction, 
he still found plenty of time for practicing his track thing of broad 
and triple jumping. However, "Easy Ken" was never ineligible for 
partying and always made himself available for the right kind of 
girl. The tellies never had a night without Perns and the barber 
shop never had much trouble sweeping out his hair. He never had 
to worry about dying from eye strain but he constantly worried 
about motorcycle wrecks. Surely his new Corvette will lead him to 
new yuks and even greater speed. 


After arriving here from a year at Fayetteville Technical Insti- 
tute, "The Kirbs" became an example of the professional attitude 
that produces outstanding officers. He was active in the YP 
Squadron for three years, distinguishing himself in the salty life 
with early qualifications. Tom was not all military and continued 
his interest in physics from FTI by becoming an Associate Member 
of Sigma Pi Sigma. He could be counted on for any kind of help 
(except swimming E.I.), always unselfish toward others, he won 
many friends here. Considering the pride and dedication he puts 
into his work, Tom should have a successful career. 



Doug came to us a Navy junior. After a year at Purdue, he saw 
the glimmering light of Navy and came rushing. Having enjoyed 
the good college life, he quickly adapted to the ease of Navy life. 
A varsity "squad" member, Doug could usually be found getting 
some E.I. under his blankets. A taste for the finer things in life 
consumed his free time. Always friendly, Doug's motto of "I'm 
not fat . . . I just have a husky stomach" typified his easy-going 
nature. Academics were no trouble, once he decided a minor in 
Chemistry instead of a major would suffice. Doug will have a 
bright and a prosperous future with his devotion to duty. 


Mike is a man never satisfied with his own progress. After one 
year at the University of Colorado, he decided to try the Naval 
Academy. Mike didn't have any trouble adjusting to USNA and 
was well on his way toward selection for the Trident Scholar 
Program by the end of his plebe year. Mike always gave up much 
of his time to help others in academics. He found time to sing in 
both the Catholic Choir and Glee Club, play drums for the 
Outriggers and work on the Lucky Bag Staff. Mike is a man with 
mature insight and great ambition and he has the dedication to 
hard work that will make him successful in any endeavor. 


If he hasn't lost himself, Fucaul could be found at the high 
jump pit either practicing or catching some rays. After four years 
at Archbishop Molloy High School on the shores of Long Island, 
Regis brought his analytical mind to the Academy in hopes of 
pursuing a Math major. He decided later that being a more well- 
rounded person with a Math Minor was more important. De- 
pending on the season, free time could find Bill either on his surf 
board, at a ski lodge, at the woods with his motorcycle or hunting 
for babbling brooks in his Corvette, his primary objective — 
finding the "perfect party." Bill will be a success wherever he goes 
with his bubbling (or is that carbonated) personality and friendly 
"hi-ya" for anyone he meets. 


Munns entered this boat school having spent two years at the 
University of Cincinnati. Very athletic, Munns was the mainstay of 
several Batt football, lacrosse and fieldball teams. Often long after 
the games, he could be found in the hospital having his bones 
reassembled. Despite his many injuries, he gained life long mem- 
bership in the Yuk, a night club by his flaming tennis balls and his 
catapults. (The Thomas Edison of the 13th Company) Munns 
chose mathematics as his major, but advanced calculus quickly 
changed that to a math minor. He has always been looked to for 
leadership; and his easy-going character, friendliness and sincerity 
will always prove invaluable to him in his career. 


After a highly successful high school career in Indianapolis, 
Indiana, Tim elected to follow in his older brother's footsteps to 
the Academy. An outstanding leader and student, Tim soon se- 
cured a position near the top of the class both militarily and 
academically; he received the Carl Vinson leadership award at the 
end of our Youngster year. Continuing to contribute his abilities 
to the Brigade, Tim found time to participate in the Glee Club, 
Chapel Choir, French Club, Foreign Relations Club and NAFAC, 
as well as aiding the company's intramural efforts in basketball, 
soccer and football. Maintaining this pace through first class year, 
Tim was one of our Trident Scholars. With his ability and am- 
bition, Tim is certain to be successful In anything he undertakes. 


Hailing from Bridgeton, New Jersey, which he says is the 
tomato capital of the world, Hugh quickly gained the friendship 
and respect of his classmates through his quiet thoughtful nature. 
A rugged competitor, this stubborn Irishman made his mark on 
various battalion and company sports squads during his years at 
Navy. His true love, however, was the varsity pistol team which he 
helped drive to a victory over Army. A hard worker and dedicated 
individual, Hugh is sure to become a truly fine officer and a credit 
to the Naval Service. 




"Boot" came to the banks of the Severn straight from high school 
in Framingham, Massachusetts, a suburb of "Bahston", which one 
could quickly perceive by his constant praise of the Celtics and the 
Red Sox. Carl enjoyed knocking a few heads as he helped his 
Company football, soccer and baseball teams achieve success. 
When it came to academics, Carl showed seemingly endless energy. 
Few were the times when he couldn't be found pushing a T-square 
era slipstick in his room. But the work paid off with high class 
standing and a 4.0 average second class year. We all wish him luck 
as his hard work and determination continue to make the road to 
success smooth sailing for "Choo." 


Following a varied and exciting life as an Army Brat and a year 
at Columbian Preparatory School Mike saw the light and joined 
the Navy side of the fence with much enthusiasm. Company 
soccer and lightweight football kept 'MAP' busy during the fall 
and winter, while the Spanish Club and frequent "bull sessions" 
were other important interests. Perhaps one of his greatest dis- 
tinctions at the Academy was his swimming prowess, where he 
somehow managed to survive four years of swimming sub squad. 
Although never an academic whiz, Mike managed to keep his 
grades high enough to spend his weekends enjoying other aspects 
of Academy life. 


Bryan left the wide open spaces of Marshall, Texas to pursues 
career over or below the great oceans of the world, coming to us 
fortified with the tools necessary to wage a successful war with the 
academic department. Blending intramural sports, physical 
prowess, girls, a calm temper and humor with his academic endeav 
ors earned Bryan several nicknames. The one most cherished by 
him and his friends is "Bad Alfa", which will endure throughout 
his Naval career. B. A.'s conscientious effort to expand his 
professional knowledge and his earnest pursuit in the service 
he believes in guarantee a successful career. 


Laur's antics were well known to his company mates. He was 
always able to find something humorous in what appeared to be 
the most serious situations — a trait that should serve him well as a 
future officer. He always made the impression he was never 
studying but we knew better because when grade cards came out 
he was always up there. He ran cross country and track and helped 
his team to three Brigade Championships. The future is a big 
beckoning door of Laur and his wish is to see the stars someday. 
We hope he makes it. 



"Rack" came to the Academy from the shores of Miami Beach. 
After two years in the Fleet, he realized his officer potential and 
received his appointment after a year at NAPS. ECA's were 
"Rack's" bag. Without his finesse in the organizational and mana- 
gerial arts, the Spanish Club, Class Picnics, Class Directory, Class 
Stationery and this LUCKY BAG would not have existed. "Rack" 
combined his management talents with his ability to avoid 
physical exertion and became the varsity track manager. Nights 
would find "The Sword" either making the rounds with his famed 
"mini-visit" or on his personal phone. Marshall will always be 
remembered for his confident manner and practical outlook, and 
for his unending ability to accomplish any task. 


"Ruf", straight from high school in Kettering, Ohio chose 
Navy over Air Force. Rick has many achievements to be proud of 
during his stay with Mother B. Although he spent many hours 
writing letters and on the blue trampoline, he managed to excel in 
academics and take part in various extracurricular activities. Rick 
may have considered Ohio invincible in sports, but he could 
always be seen cheering on Navy teams all year 'round, and, 
despite an "ungainly" run, Rick was an active member of com- 
pany and battalion sports squads with Brigade Champion numerals 
in tennis. Always ready to hear all your problems. Rick won many 
friends with his ready advice and warm smile. A hard worker, Rick 
has a bright future ahead in the Navy. 


George, an Air Force junior, came to Navy well-traveled but 
claiming Rutland, Vermont as home. He was one of the privileged 
few who found the academic groove immediately, which freed 
time for such athletic endeavors as J.V. soccer, batt lacrosse, 
company football and German Club and Antiphonal Choir in the 
extracurricular field. George has always managed to amuse a small 
but devoted following with the twists and turns of his love life. 
When not dragging the girls, he managed to find time to loiter with 
the "boys" at some of those tremendous bull sessions. No matter 
where George goes in the Navy, he will take an affinity for a few 
grins and a high degree of professionalism. 


"Subs" was always a bright face in a dark crowd and the room 
was always filled with other "areo people" looking for the "how" 
of it. The afternoons found him a star on the company sports 
teams and the weekends . . . well, he never seemed to lack for 
laughing, shapely companionship. Never one to over-value things, 
Roy had his share of run ins with the Executive Department, but 
never let it affect him. Roy is a very conscientious worker and a 
well rounded individual, and if he ever learns the country has 40 
states besides Florida ("Come and Live In . . ." notwithstanding) 
the Navy will be far better for him.

There were thirty-six of us on that 30th day in June who took the 
oath. We quickly fell into the sheltered life of Hick's Honchos and 
McQueen's Friendly Blue Jays. We were sorry to see the good times of 
Plebe Summer pass, but they did and we buckled down to the 
business of academics. 

Our numbers were depleted by the loss of seven of us during the 
length of Plebe year. Those of us that were left formed a very 
close-knit group that would remain so until graduation. 

Through four years we all managed to slide while performing 
admirably. We were within the top five, including first, in colors for 
the first three years. This spirit was also apparent on the athletic field 
with three Brigade champion football teams and a regimental champ. 

Our true spirit and unit will most be remembered in the many Vat 
Fourteens and functions such as the Sports Car Rally. These four 
years will finally be ushered out at two-thirty on June fourth with the 
first Hitching of one of Hick's Honchos.

Ed came to the Academy from Portland, Oregon with the 
burning desire to become a Naval Officer and to get Plebe year 
over with. After making it through Plebe year unscathed, the 
"gray eagle", switched his attention from the upper class to the 
academic department, with which he had a running battle. Second 
class year, he saw the accumulation of some gravy and a Math 
minor. "E.P." proceeded to bring glory to his company by excel- 
ling on the intramural soccer and sailing teams. With his fine 
personality and his avid interest in Navy line, he is sure to become 
a worthwhile addition to the fleet. 


Cat came to Navy from Sharpsville, Pennsylvania and spent 
most of his time here waiting for opportunities to go back. 
Christmas, Spring and summer leaves were the areas in which he 
excelled. He waged a continuous war with the academic depart- 
ments, though not always successfully. Needless to say, he was a 
regular on the Supt's mailing list. His afternoons were occupied 
with volleyball, football (Brigade Champion lightweight team) and 
Softball. He also brought up the rear of the company in parade and 
ran a regular check of his pad to make sure it was in working 
order. His sense of humor and ready smile will follow him wher- 
ever he goes. 


Parker, or HPC III, left Kansas City social life for the Naval 
Academy and the Naval Service. Perhaps the best blocker on the 
three year Brigade Championship 14th Company heavyweight 
football team. Parker's interests in academics made him a regular 
on the Dean's and Supt's Lists. His hard working and easy going 
attitude will take him a long way in the service and build him a 
successful future in whatever he does. The world will see a lot 
more of Parker in the near future. He has an unlimited potential, 
this coupled with an honest smile and a virtuous personality 
insures it. 


Carl came straight to the Academy from Cedar Grove, New 
Jersey, and he is proud of it. In his four years at Navy he has 
always been a hard worker in company projects, mainstay on the 
company soccer team, and an ever persistent opponent of the 
seventh wing weight machine. Carl was never one to complain, 
worry, or let a day go by without having a little fun. He could 
always pick out the good things in any situation and somehow 
forget about the rest. This unusual quality gives "Crafty Carl " the 
unanimous choice for 14th Company humor merchant. Carl's hard 
working nature and genuinely positive outlook on life will be a 
credit to any branch of the Navy. 


Fresh from the Kansas "hills," the "grunt" made his assault on 
the Naval Academy and Plebe Summer. He considered it "fruit". 
The academic year dawned, as it invariably must, and he broke the 
first prerequisite for a marine candidate, that of a sagging Q.P.R. 
He was to find that the academic department, especially Naval 
Science, had quite an arsenal to draw, he soon joined the rest of us 
hopefuls. An avid ahtlete, Jerry found gymnastics, wrestling, soc- 
cer and football to his liking, helping the 14th company to the 
first double Brigade football championships in 1968. Of course, 
the Marine Corps is his first choice, but even if Navy Line got him 
he is sure to do mighty fine. 





John came to Navy from Phillips Exeter Academy. Academics, 
having never come easily, John was forced to resort to hard work 
to attain Superintendent's List grades several semesters. Having the 
ability to go through life without making a single enemy it was 
soon apparent that his advice and friendship was highly prized by 
those close to him. The girls found his easy going nature totally 
irresistible - even though those girls that belonged to his close 
friends. With his pleasant disposition and undaunted determi- 
nation, John will be a credit to whatever line of service he chooses. 


Tony is a "Silent Service" junior who came to us via McLean, 
Virginia where he was captain of his high school basketball team 
and quarterback for the football team. He is known for his love of 
sports, painted rocks, and as a charter member of VAT-14. He is 
well liked and respected by his classmates as he served extended 
tours as both company representative and honor representative. 
Tony played plebe football and intramural basketball, football and 
sailing. He is best known for being the person to wear the most 
asphalt off of the basketball courts during a four year stay. Tony's 
zest for life is matched only by his desire to see it all. He'll be a 
welcome addition to the fleet. 


In the summer of 1965 Scott sacrificed his romantic existence 
in the paradise of Hawaii to brave the rigors of life at the Naval 
Academy. He met the challenge and proved himself capable with a 
strong determination and a well used pad. Being a well rounded 
individual, his academic excellence was matched only by his 
athletic prowess, especially his agility on the blue trampoline. As a 
popular member of his class he could always be counted on to put 
on a good show at the frequent company parties. His only fault, 
his thinning hair, made him the target of many good-humored 
jokes. Scott's tireless spirit and realistic view of life should make 
him a success in any career. 


Alan came to the Academy from the sunshine state of Florida. 
Growing up in Ormond Beach and being an excellent surfer. Navy 
was quite a change in many respects for him. The "endless sum- 
mer" which greeted him upon arriving at Navy was not exactly the 
one he was constantly dreaming of. "Never let your studies inter- 
fere with your education" and "The game is not till Saturday 
afternoon," were favorite sayings that Alan treasured and lived by. 
Accumulating many friends and compiling a fine record at the 
Academy, Alan was the personification of the easy going, fun- 
loving fellow who, if he ever had any worries, never worried about 
them enough to let anyone know. 


Mike was perhaps one of the most promising young athletes 
ever to come to Navy. He was a star halfback on the plebe football 
team and a sprinter on the track team, but, as luck might have it, 
he injured his knee during Spring ball, never again to return to the 
gridiron. Mike came to the Academy from New Mexico Military 
Institute, which he attended for a year to pursue his excellence in 
not only football but also academics. Mike had little trouble in 
winning the admiration of his classmates and all others he came in 
contact with for the sincerity in his words and deeds were self 


Ron came to Canoe U. from the "Gateway to the West," St. 
Louis, Missouri. R. P., as his classmates affectionately call him, has 
had a tough time adjusting to the military way of life. Even Ron's 
ever fun loving outlook had its trying moments when he had to 
bear the "blue wrench." When the call came for his help on the 
intramural fields, R. P. could always be counted on for top 
support in basketball, Softball and volleyball. Tackling academics 
with much enthusiasm, he constantly made the Supt's List while 
pursuing his field of study in operations analysis. His individualism 
and persistent desire to do his best should carry him far in any 
chosen field of endeavor. 



Paul reported to the Naval Academy shortly after graduating 
from Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, Texas. He carried his 
avid interest in competitive athletics into the Brigade intramural 
program where his most notable accomplishment was not drown- 
ing during any of the stormy water polo matches. Paul's philo- 
sophical mind has broadened in his stay at the Academy, and he 
considers his most valuable acquisition of knowledge to be a 
greater understanding of himself and others. Through his literature 
courses, he pursued human nature, an enlightening as well as 
enjoyable study. To those who got to know him, Paul always 
proved to be a conscientious and reliable friend. He is anticipating 
more years of learning about people in the Naval service. 


From the land of sunshine and bikini-clad girls — Rio Vista, 
California Mike, alias "Grog", "Toad" or "Sarge", narrowly es- 
caped the grasp of the U.S. Marine Corps only to wind up at Navy. 
Forthright, he captured the hearts and respect of all with whom he 
came into contact (excepting a certain firstie). His amiable and 
easygoing nature were substituted with fierce aggressiveness on the 
athletic field. His competiveness earned respect in soccer, football 
and Softball. Never one to let academics override "cribbage" or 
"playboy", he battled the Engineering Department to a standstill, 
and gamed marks low enough to hopefully assure his desire to 
become a Marine, where he will certainly gain further admiration 
from his colleagues and his service. 


After trying a year of civilian college life at the University of 
Illinois, Dewey came to the Academy from East St. Louis, Illinois. 
Speedy and athletic, "The Fly" has been an active participant in 
and valuable asset to intramural soccer, football and rugby teams. 
Sports, sleeping, soul sounds, the fine arts and the art of having 
fun hold most of "Gramps" interest. Academics have never been 
Dewey's favorite activity, and as a result he has had several close 
calls in the battle with his QPR. Always friendly, frequently witty, 
usually sleeping and seldom gloomy, Dewey's sincerity, industri- 
ousness and likeable nature are sure to take him far in any career 
he pursues. 


After graduation from Linden High School the "Great Moth" 
left the Garden State and Jersey Shore, with his bat and glove to 
spend a year at NAPS. Ed entered the Academy and while not an 
academic whiz kid, managed to do as well as the next man. His 
love of the finer things in life placed him as part of "The Group" 
and made him the man "to know" if you ever needed anything. 
Ed's sense of humor and friendliness have won him many friends 
throughout the Brigade and insure him a very happy and success- 
ful life no matter what he undertakes in the future. 



Bob, and Air Force junior, prides himself in being from Cali- 
fornia. According to Bob, Sacramento is the only place to spend 
Christmas Leave. Bob can be a hard person to know and people all 
too often get the impression that nothing bothers him. Contrary 
to the concensus of opinion. Bob is human and' a very thoughtful 
and considerate and sensitive person. Bob asks very little of 
people, but when he does, one always knows he is asking. Some 
have tried to label him a "mooch". Bob prefers to call it bor- 
rowing. But it can be said of Bob that what ever he does he does 
quietly, neatly and properly. 


Gordon came to the Naval Academy from Winston Salem, 
North Carolina. Here he found the opportunity to express and 
develop a variety of interests ranging from sports cars to an 
Impressive major in Mathematics. An ardent, confident competitor 
In all fields, he is especially accomplished on the tennis courts. 
Admired for his exploits at the Vats, and turning his room into an 
executive suite, Gordon will probably be best remembered for 
bringing college to the Academy. Gordon places high value in 
being an individual and obtaining the best of what life has to offer. 
His warm sincerity and mature outlook have gained him the 
respect from all those who have had the pleasure of knowing him. 


The Pratch, as he's known by all, came to us right out of high 
school from Erie, Pennsylvania. What he lacks in size, he's more 
than amply made up for in his aggressive but amiable personality. 
In his own words, he's wound tight, as evidenced by his contribu- 
tions to batt lacrosse. Perhaps John is best known for his ability in 
that dreaded of all subjects, wires. More than once he has given his 
classmates the gouge which has pulled them through quiz after 
quiz. Pratch is also widely acclaimed for his mechanical ability, 
especially in the fields of model building and slide rule repair. 
Liking him as we do, each of us wishes him continued success. 


After many and varied travels as an Air Force junior, Steve 
came to the Academy following an illustrious high school career in 
Homestead, Florida. Maintaining his standard of personal excel- 
lence he soon distinguished himself as an outstanding individual 
among his classmates. A consistent Dean's List student, he stood 
in the top five percent of his class. His wide range of interests and 
broad knowledge served to make him an addition to any group 
and adept at coping with any situation. Acquiring a love for the 
guitar, he soon became known as the company "Bob Dylan." 
Steve's high personal goals and outstanding ability assure him a 
prominent place in society. His manner and character make his 
friends proud to know him. 


Bob came to the Academy from high school in Okinawa and a 
year as a "Rotsy" at the University of Kansas. His friendly, 
outgoing nature, combined with a true interest in the Navy, served 
to bring him success in all he undertook at "Navy." Sandy's 
interests were indicative of his diversified personality; travel, 
books, sports and VAT-14 being the most evident. Plebe gymnas- 
tics, company soccer, football and Softball, an Aero minor and 
work on the Brigade Hop Committee, filled his remaining waking 
hours. Additionally, Bob became famous for his remarkable ability 
to converse expertly, humorously and at length on any and all 
subjects. Personality, ability and drive insure a great future for 
Bob in any field he chooses. 




Mike is well recognized for his ability to say what the rest of us 
have on our minds. "Sarano", an ill use of his last name, came to 
Navy from Bullis Prep where Mike dividied his time amongst 
academics, baby sitting and pest extermination. Although a hard 
worker and fine student, Sarano is better known for his party- 
livening personality. One of the original Vat-14's, Mike many 
times has brought life to parties that otherwise might have flop- 
ped. Although he's constantly complaining about one injury or 
another, Mike loves to mix it up in football, rugby or fieldball. 
Mike is well respected and even better liked, this kid's got to make 
the big time. 


Charlie came to us from his native town of Philly. During Plebe 
Summer, his room was singled out by the presence of "The 
Doner", but he managed to survive to spite this handicap. Plebe 
academic year was another story. His skillful evasiveness permitted 
him to be unknown by most of the upperclass for the first part of 
the year. The electroman's ability to solve even the most elusive 
wires problem proved him to be a very popular man during the 
wee hours of the nite. His determination and competitive spirit 
that he showed on the varsity gymnastic team will carry him 
through a rewarding naval career. 



Through his good grades, John became known as the "man 
with the answers", and much sought after for them. Although 
encouraging the image of a civilian in a uniform, "Sully's" vast 
naval knowledge reflected his true interests. An easygoing person, 
John never let the pressures of the intramural program upset his 
carefully designed afternoon snooze program. He preferred to get 
his exercise on the many sub squads of the Brigade. His hometown 
being Dallas, the "Pear", so nicknamed for the silhouette he 
presented, is every bit a Texan, independent minded and sure of 
himself, John does not waste any effort, and where he applies his 
full abilities the results will stand for themselves. 


An active life at Calvert Hall High School in Baltimore pre- 
pared Terry well for the vigorous routine of the midshipmen. 
Besides his musical activities, he found time to become a sub- 
mariner, win his dolphins and acquire an abundance of profession- 
al knowledge. In sports, Terry slashed through on the plebe 
fencing team on which he won a silver medal and placed second on 
the Maryland state sabre team. Terry kept charging and also a 
member of three Brigade championship teams. In his spare time, 
he made the Dean's and Superintendent's lists. Terry's success can 
be attributed to his sharp mind and keen wit which kept his 
classmates in good humor. He is sure to succeed in all of his 
endeavors and have a good time while doing so. 


One of Texas' proud sons, Jim brought to Navy a sense of 
determination, a friendly personality and a great golfing ability. 
"Arnie" just missed lettering Youngster Year, but undaunted and 
doubly determined earned the number one, or on off weeks, the 
number two position of Navy's golf team, and the nickname 
"Gobble." Always the life of any party, a founding father of the 
Vat, Jim could handle any liberty or leave Navy afforded him. As 
far as academic endeavors were concerned, Jim, true to form, set 
his sights high. And, with only an occasional set back (two a week 
or so), achieved some respectable grades. Jim is a sure bet in life. 


Big Wils came to the Academy from Columbian Prep where he 
majored in obtaining an appointment from the Naval Reserve and 
in football. Perhaps Wayne's greatest desire at Navy was to succeed 
in varsity football and lacrosse. Towards this goal. Big Wils has 
devoted many long rugged hours in return for the admiration and 
respect of his fellow athletes not to mention his own sense of 
personal achievement. However, as the years rolled by, the black 
hand of the academic department called for more time than the 
gridiron. Wayne remained devoted to athletics always giving 100% 
of himself 100% of the time. Big Wils will always be, to those who 
know his lovable and drifty nature, the M.V.P., most valuable

LT J. H. Gaul, USN 



Harold hails from Port Jefferson Station in the Empire State, 
coming to USNA after spending a carefree year at the State 
University of New York at Stonybrook. A good handballer, 
Harold also gave his talents to the company basketball team and 
knocked heads for battalion rugby. With some burning of the 
midnight oil and the wearing out of many pencils, Harold has 
made the Superintendent's List and the Dean's List. Even though 
he worked hard, Harold was never unfaithful to his social life. 
Harold is the kind of officer that the Navy is always looking for, a 
leader and a worker who will not quit. 


Dennis, a Navy junior, forsook that small college atmosphere at 
North Greenville Junior College for the vast domains of good ole 
USNA. To the astonishment of his classmates he was never afraid 
to admit that he sincerely enjoyed his tour of duty at the Acad- 
emy. The batt track and cross country teams are going to be lost 
without him because he contributed heavily toward their several 
championships. The Baptist Student Union won't be the same 
either without his persevering and conscientious leadership. For 
some reason the BSU seemed considerably more lively while 
Dennis was president. Unfortunately, Dennis wasn't successful in 
everything. He must have lost at least half a dozen girl friends to 
the wedding bells, but let's face it, you can't win them all. 


Jerry, a Navy junior, left the good life in the halls of Ripon 
College to serve his time as an officer and a gentleman. Although 
he never wore stars, no one can deny that he always worked as 
hard as those who did. At almost any given time he could be seen 
at his desk wearing his red ski cap and pondering over his next 
day's assignments. Jerry held a strong link with the outside 
through the St. Paul's Lutheran Church where he was an active 
Sunday School teacher. Those of us who knew him will always 
cherish the relationship. 


Eric quickly adapted to USNA life and found time to indulge 
in his many varied interests. Biology, science fiction and geogra- 
phy books cluttered his shelves. He found time to help out the 
Stage Gang in several productions and was a steady trumpeter for 
the NA-10 and Concert Band. Despite these outside endeavors, 
Eric maintained a respectable average, often attaining Superinten- 
dent's List status. An active intramural fan, Eric loved the fast 
moving sports of rugby, soccer and fieldball and found time for 
Scuba, lifesaving and personal conditioning. Reliable, conscien- 
tious and curious, Eric will be a valuable addition to the Naval 


"Doc" came to us from two vigorous years at Valley Forge 
Military Academy, his past experience led him to a very successful 
plebe year. Not to be outdone he has maintained his status 
through the subsequent years. An avid gymnast, he has held his 
own on the plebe and varsity squads. The agility obtained here and 
his wild sense of humor has earned him the title of "Chimp." 
Many a night has found him indulging in the antics of the lower 
primate. Contrary to popular belief, his first but not last love, was 
a 327 "Vette" of ancient vintage to whom a generous portion of 
his love and affection is given. The fair state of Ohio has given one 
of her finest to the service. 


If slag dump 51 could have a favorite son, it would be Dudes. 
A leaf-brother who was hot dog chief cook . . . but a very poor 
bottle washer. A homebody junior year hobnobbing with the 
BOOW, Dave got his letter early. A Math minor was his bag — 
unfortunately he left it on the Pittsburgh train. Swimming was his 
major: applied survival. Dudes is a straight-faced (not laced) hu- 
morist whose lacerations laughed us into submission and whose 
social expertise was akin to the books he read. His amiability and 
poise in any environment will benefit the Naval Service. 




George arrived at the Academy from the sunny beaches of Fort 
Lauderdale, Florida. On weekends George was either with his latest 
girl or over at St. John's playing chess — and winning. During his 
four years at the Academy he made many friends among his 
classmates and the stewards. An avid reader of everything except 
his textbooks, George still had a 3.0 for tr e four years, and a room 
full of books ranging from philosophy to science fiction, the 
Korean language and Army field manuals from his correspondence 
courses. He was active in the FAC and as a staff member of the 
Trident in several positions. Whatever branch George decides on 
will be fortunate to have him in its ranks. 


Tom, a Navy junior, came to us from Arlington, Virginia. 
Living so close to the Academy, his home soon became a haven for 
classmates during short leaves and his car rivaled the area airport 
taxis. After a rough Plebe year, Gibbsy set out to vanquish his 
minor in Aero and never ceased to amaze his roommates at how 
successful he was at taking things lying down. After classes Tom 
spent his time either playing company fieldball or sailing in the 
Freedom. Easy to get along with and never too busy to help out a 
friend, Tom will make a fine officer in which ever branch of the 
Navy he chooses. 


Calling Williamsburg, Pennsylvania his home, Dave came to the 
Naval Academy after fifteen months in the Naval Reserve. In the 
afternoons Dave could always be found on the athletic fields 
where he was a mainstay of the company volleyball and heavy- 
weight football teams. Never one to have any difficulty with 
academics, he was often on the Superintendent's List. French was 
his specialty as shown by his active participation in the French 
Club. Always taking life at the Academy rather seriously, Dave 
never had any trouble except for once. With his high motivation, 
Dave is marked for success after graduation. 


"T-squared" made the trek from Marengo, Illinois immediately 
upon graduation from high school. Between taping sessions Ron 
tackled Aero and fluctuated between stars and probation while 
also playing on the Drum and Bugle Corps. Though small of 
stature, Ron was a true sports enthusiast and proved a real asset to 
the company softball and basketball teams and certainly kept 
status as a White Sox fanatic; neither was his size commensurate 
with his taste for cheese or dark brew. Ron seemed to hold the 
whole company accountable with his well-timed if not strategic 
wit and sarcasm. His intense determination and easy-going manner 
should leave Ron no problems in which ever branch of the Naval 
Service he chooses. 



Imey, here between European sojourns, tried desperately to 
hide his latent Hell's Angel's tendencies and will always be remem- 
bered for discovering the leaves. He was bass with the Spiffys on 
weekends and usually base without a Spiffy on weekdays. After an 
extremely restricted sophomore year, Mike campaigned vigorously 
for two cars in every garage out in town (Ducati is not a domestic 
wine). A great skier and lodgeman with a social history banned in 
Boston, he managed to cultivate an interesting facial growth on 
even the shortest vacation. If he can keep his address intact, the 
Naval Service will enjoy Mike's tenure. 


Pete came to USNA from the gay parties and coed life of 
Pensacola Junior College. A Navy man by birth and inclination, he 
was an airdale from the day he entered the world. He not only 
carried on a four year bout with the academic department and the 
fair sex but also with athletics, becoming a stalwart on the JV 
soccer team and a kingpin in the Scuba Club. His knowledge of 
Pensacola and his antics during ACTRAMID made Second Class 
Summer bearable, but he will best be remembered for his perfor- 
mances as "Dirty Pete." Jarhead's outgoing personality and great 
determination will carry him far in the Naval Service and the 
outside world. 


Equally at ease leaping frantically through the leaves with any 
one of many overwhelmed young wenches or "booking it" occa- 
sionally to maintain an unbelievable academic average, Zeus re- 
mained a bit of a wonder to us all. Waves, leaves and California 
Dreamin', combined with physical prowess, a fine voice and a 
balding skull adequately depicted on a 3' x 5' poster above his 
bed, provided us with a truly interesting individual. He didn't 
spend all of his time in California. Hoping to pursue naval ocean- 
ography, he should find the service a challenging endeavor. 


Rusty came to the Naval Academy from Kennett, Missouri. A 
devout believer in sarcastic wit. Rusty always had an appropriate 
word for every situation. Rarely cracking a smile, especially before 
9 o'clock. Rusty associated with Snoopy, and his drawings could 
be found in the Log. Herein is one of Rusty 's greatest assets, his 
ability to know people and to find their good qualities. This 
understanding of people, a sense of humor that cannot be lowered, 
even by a four year bout with the academic department, and a 
desire to always be doing or making something new assures that 
Rusty will make a success after graduation. Rusty is the type who 
can do almost anything once he sets his mind to it. 


Hailing from Louisiana, "Noobs" brought with him a Southern 
hospitality and refined manner that helped brighten the gloom at 
Navy. Coming here after a year at Georgia Tech where he stood 
first in his NROTC class, he became an active member of the 
Foreign Relations Club. A frustrated Brigade boxer, he turned his 
talents to managing and earned a Navy "N" for his efforts. Usually 
found deep in a book or term paper, he occasionally made Super- 
intendent's List. His conscientious attitude, mature outlook and 
sense of responsibility will make him a valuable addition to the 
Naval Service. 


The "Poo-Bear", who disguised as the bushy-locked Kahoona 
in the summer, was a good solid friend to many. The ghost of 
Alan's straight "A" high school past cried out in the night: four 
letter words like "Aero." The "waistless wonder", and Hoggers I 
and II were the G-Burg matchmakers and though reluctant to take 
to the hill, the leaves wouldn't have been the same without him. 
Success following commission hopefully will be easier than a 
finger snap. A fellow admired and respected by all. 



John made the coast-to-coast journey directly from high school 
in Visalia, California. After a near TKO in Round One, "Flash" 
bounced back to outpoint the academic department in the final 
rounds. A rabid believer in the invincibility of California teams, 
John spent his afternoons playing a variety of sports. A member of 
the Plebe tennis team John had to be content with the battalion 
tennis team later. An intense competitor John was also a standout 
on the company basketball team and an early riser with the Scuba 
Club. Consistent with his love for sports, he spent many a varsity 
sporting event in the press box helping out the Public Relations 
Club. Whichever service John chooses he will surely be successful. 


A Navy junior from Pensacola, Florida Steve came to USNA 
from the Naval Reserve. He immediately proceeded to spend far 
more time with athletics than with his academic endeavors. A 
hammer and 35 pound weight thrower for the track team, his 
most prized win was the Captaincy of the 1968-69 track team. 
Steve arrived in the 15th Company during his junior year and was 
liked and respected by all, especially for his fearless card-playing. 
His unquenchable thirst and voluptuous appetite marked him as 
one of the truly "big" men of his class. Steve's friendliness and 
levelheadedness will always remain with him and bean invaluable 
aid throughout his career. 


"Jokin' Eugene," 15th Company's answer to Vince Lombardi, 
was known especially for his Eastern Shore vernacular. His noc- 
turnal wanderings into parts unknown kept his friends supplied 
with everything from mustard to athletic tape. Treating friends 
like silly putty won him fame on the battalion football team for 
four years. One of Hill's biggest accomplishments was his organi- 
zation of the annual Turkey Bowl football games, which gave us 
all an opportunity to vent pent up passions on the plebes. Des- 
perate hours buried in his textbooks drove Hill to a blurry refuge 
romping in the leaves on weekends. An ironic sense of humor and 
easy-going attitude should enable Hill to survive the rigors of his 
military career ROGER KEITH ROOSA 

Rog came to the Academy upon graduation from high school 
in Drayton Plains, Michigan. Unlike most midshipmen he never 
found too much difficulty with the academics, making the Super- 
intendent's and Dean's Lists on numerous occasions. He was also a 
member of Sigma Pi Sigma, as well as a Trident Scholar. Rog was 
always very professionally oriented, being the source of a large 
percentage of the questions and answers employed in the profes- 
sional training program. He joined the YP Squadron in order to 
have a chance to display his nautical knowledge. He did everything 
in his power to give the Plebes in his squad the highest degree of 
training. An officer of Rog's caliber will be a welcome asset to the 


Jim made his way from Kettering, Ohio to the Academy with a 
generous amount of leadership from high school under his belt. 
Always at the top of the company, "Toad" held many striper 
positions during his four year tenure. "Toad" was on both Plebe 
football and wrestling teams but injuries kept him from going on 
to varsity. He was still an avid sportsman and could always be 
counted on in company sports. Continually exhibiting his natural 
leadership, Jim was elected company honor representative first 
class year. "Toad" always had a good word and a smile for 
everyone and gave the impression of the type of guy who is going 
to the top. 


After two years at the University of Illinois, Nestor decided 
upon a Naval career. Nes was a member of the Color Company as a 
Plebe and participated in Plebe cross country and indoor track. 
Four battalion cross country and track teams had undefeated 
seasons with his support. Having a warm personality, Nestor 
always was ready with a friendly smile and greeting. Teaching 
Sunday School in Annapolis gave him a meaningful outlet for his 
philosophical nature. The fleet will be an easy step because of 
Nestor's determination to become a good officer.

16th Company 

FALL SET: CDR: R. J. Fawcett; SUB-CDR: J. M. Bunker; 
CPO: L. F. Rubano. 

Steeled in the tradition of superlative 2 stripers (Daddy Dods and 
Casper), this year found "16" well conditioned for "the Tennis Ball". 
We responded in our typical indifferent fashion, thus establishing 
ourselves as one of the "coolest" connpanies in the Brigade. Our 
civilian outlook on life has proved to be an invaluable asset this year. 
With a penchant for fast cars, high insurance rates, and "constructive 
criticism," we have always been able to prove to ourselves that it's the 
rest of the world that is out of phase. But in all honesty, our future is 
optimistic. We have been able to look at USNA and separate the good 
from the bad, and at the same time display a realistic appreciation of 
the military and how it is run. The majority of '69 in this company 
are not "lifers", but regardless of what we are doing twenty years 
from now, when we reflect we will find our experience in "16" was a 
learning process about human relations from which we all derived 
much benefit.

LT L. E. Linn, USN 



Annapolis had become ainnost a tradition in the Blackledge 
family; or as Pete put it, "a bad habit." So Pete bypassed his plans 
to attend Duke University in order to follow in the footsteps of 
his father and brother. Abandoning his basketball in pursuit of a 
sport which would best utilize his natural instincts, Pete found 
crew — the only sport which masters the fine art of sitting down 
and going backwards. His Youngster year Peter received his first 
"N" as a member of the boat which won the national champion- 
ships. Achievement in academis as well as more attractive pursuits 
foreshadow success for Pete in all future endeavors. 


John is a native New Yorker, coming 'from the sprawling 
metropolis of Olean. He was so eager to make his mark on the 
Navy that he left for USNA two hours after graduating from Olean 
High School. He quickly established himself in Academy aca- 
demics, although he always amazed his classmates by pulling C-^ 
grades and returning brand new books every May. John is an 
all-around sports enthusiast; he started off as a Plebe gymnast, 
switched to Plebe pistol, but then realized that company sports 
were for him. He also became an avid Scuba man while at USNA. 
John is well liked and a capable leader; he will undoubtedly 
continue these traits in becoming a fine officer and pilot in the 


In the summer of 65 "Bunks" departed from the sunny sands 
of Palm Springs to the somewhat different climate of the Naval 
Academy. After an interesting Plebe year, John turned his atten- 
tion to studying and playing tennis. This hard work proved worth- 
while as John made the Supt's List and finally earned his stars and 
became an outstanding member of the varsity tennis team. John 
always maintained that he was of above average marching ability 
which no one could disprove because the only time he saw the 
parade field in his stay at the Academy was on an occasional 
postcard to his realtives. Because of John's common sense and 
responsible nature he will be successful at anything he attempts. 


Dave came to USNA from Marshalltown, Iowa right after 
graduating from high school. He had little trouble adjusting to the 
academics at the Academy and almost continually wore stars. 
Advancing his knowledge of the world of science fiction was his 
major project during study hours, but he did manage to spend 
some time on other things like sleep, and occasionally even aca- 
demics. Four years in the Drum and Bugle Corps and a large 
record collection combined to satisfy his musical interests. When 
not in the pad or the bowling alley, Dave could be seen with the 
company Softball team. No matter what branch of service Dave 
selects, he should make a fine officer. 


"Ike" came to the Academy from Seaford, Delaware after 
graduating from Seaford High School where he excelled in wres- 
tling and track. A firm believer in physical fitness, he liked 
weight-lifting and gymnastics in which he participated for four 
years. A hard worker, "Ike" spent many hours on the books, but 
could be talked into the pad occasionally. A lover of fast cars, he 
could be found driving home to the "land of pleasant living" on 
weekends. "Ike's" fondness for stereo equipment was well known 
and he will be remembered as the "appliance king" of his com- 
pany. His quiet maturity and perseverance will doubtlessly aid him 
in whatever task he pursues in the future. 


Bob came to the Academy immediately after graduating from 
McBride High School in St. Louis, Missouri. Always a spirited 
competitor, he discovered the challenge of boxing during Plebe 
summer and went on to box for the battalion and Brigade teams. 
Always trying to improve himself. Bob went to jump school and 
took up scuba diving his Youngster year and exercised his leader- 
ship the next year with his constant efforts on the Plebe detail. 
Combining his love for the military with his tremendous desire to 
excel. Bob has a promising career awaiting him. 



After moving around the country considerably in his younger 
days, the "fish" stopped in Iowa long enough to graduate from 
Charles City High School. Coming straight to Annapolis from 
Iowa, the easygoing guy found the military ways of the Academy 
a shocking change. Never a firm believer in the slide rule or 
computer, Myles spent many a tense moment at the hands of the 
Engineering Department. Preferring sports and girls to books, 
Myles played Plebe soccer and also turned in outstanding perfor- 
mances on the company football and Softball teams as well as 
playing 150 lb. football. His friendly and outgoing personality has 
made him many lasting friends here and should help him in the 
future as a naval officer. 


Hutch comes to us from a life of sun and surf in Florida. After 
spending a year at the University of New Mexico, he adjusted 
reluctantly to life in Bancroft Hall. Hutch's academic endeavors 
were reserved for his major field, foreign affairs. His natural 
athletic ability made him a standout in intramural football, basket- 
ball and tennis. Characteristic of Hutch was his individuality and 
his fondness for fast cars and faster women. His extracurricular 
activities included the Ring and Crest Committee. A Navy junior, 
his self-confidence and ability will insure him success in whatever 
he chooses to pursue. 


Jim, a Navy junior, came to the shores of the Severn from 
Arlington, Vriginia, via the Bullis Prep School. As a plebe, he took 
up body-building (breaking) — not exactly on his own initiative — 
and completed plebe year in involuntary good shape. Cruises 
found Jim in the pad so often that he had to be "triced up" each 
morning by the compartment cleaners. At Navy, Jim spent many 
study hours indulging in his "business" which came complete with 
barber pole and accessories. The naval service will definitely be 
gaining a valuable asset in so industrious an officer. 


Brian came from a small town in nothern Vermont conve- 
niently located in some of the best skiing country in the states. 
Leavmg the Northernland and skiing was his biggest obstacle of 
Plebe year and every year thereafter. Brian often preferred a good 
ski magazine or an "hour away from Navy" in the rack rather than 
the books, but managed to get along and snag an Italian Foreign 
Exchange Cruise first class year. While at the Academy he played 
in the Drum and Bugle Corps, was a member of the Antiphonal 
Choir and many intramural sports. He will always be looking 
forward to the day when he can return to "God's green country." 


With a year at Ohio State in NROTC under his belt. Bob found 
academics at USNA an easy push. Needing something else to take 
up all his spare time, he settled on lightweight crew and got his 
letter. Around the company he was known for his library, his 
helpful extra instruction and a wit with an appropriate comment 
for any situation. With a penchant for numbers, "Klos", easily got 
his major in Math, and drawing on this vast knowledge, he made 
the famous statement, "Life is a complex variable." Regardless of 
where he goes, he will take with him a sincere personality and the 
proven ability of excellence. 


Born in the likely town of Moscow, Idaho, Phil came directly 
to the Academy after graduation from high school in O'Fallon, 
Illinois. Coming from a typical Air Force family, he has already 
seen more of the world than most could hope for. Phil quickly 
established his athletic and academic prowess during Plebe year. A 
member of the Supt's List he still found time to excel in track and 
cross country. Navy rewarded Phil with a pair of shiny new braces 
2/c Year. Between time spent in the dentist's chair playing bridge 
and an interesting social life, Phil's academics didn't drop too 
much? Phil's strong competitive spirit and desire for perfection in 
what he does will be important assets in his career in the Navy. 



Bob came to us from Southgate, California after one year at 
the Northrop Institute of Technology. Being very versatile, he is a 
member of the Superintendent's List while holding the dual 
position of Company Rep and Honor Rep. Even with his busy 
schedule, Bob has always managed to get more than his share of 
pad time. An avid sports enthusiast, Bob plays Softball, football, 
tennis and scuba dives. Bob is a lifetime baseball fan and is always 
up-to-date on the latest sports news. His usual quietness is offset 
by a sharp sense of humor which makes him interesting and 
pleasurable company. With his strong will and hard work. Bob will 
be a great asset to the service and to the men with whom he serves. 


As a favorite son of Mattituck, Long Island, Tom came to the 
Academy with a natural love of the sea and quickly established a 
friendship with the Marine Engineering Department. He pursued 
his education with characteristic vigor, turning out grades that will 
be a lasting reminder of his academic ability. For a sport Tom 
preferred soccer and many an afternoon was spent playing for the 
Academy and then with the company team. His determination and 
easy to get along with manner should make him an asset that the 
Naval Service can well be proud of. 


Bringing to the Naval Academy the name "The Southampton 
Bullet," a title he canned while in high school and NAPS, Glen 
carried the legend successfully through 3 years on the varsity 
soccer team. As the team scoring leader his junior year he became 
respected throughout the league. Refusing to let academics inter- 
fere with athletics. Glen relinquished his former namesake for the 
now popular "3.0 Reid" address. Glen has repeatedly kept himself 
one step ahead of the Executive Department on all occasions, 
except that one memborable evening of April 15th. If Glen's 
success on the athletic field is any indication of his ability for a 
successful career, he will most certainly be an asset to the Naval 


"Luigi", as Lou has become known to many of his friends, hails 
from Orange, Connecticut. From the day Lou entered the Naval 
Academy, he has never professed to be a military man and Is still 
pursuing that profession. One of Lou's remarkable characteristics 
is his ability to consistently maintain his hair at a somewhat 
respectable collegiate length. Lou has never been bothered by 
academics and has never really bothered them, but still managed 
to hold the upper hand. Lou has always had a keen interest in 
sports and has been a welcome asset to the company's lightweight 
football, volleyball, and Softball teams. Aside from the minor 
"assets" Lou will be a welcome and hard working addition to the 


Pete came to the Academy from Santa Rosa, California, 
where he attended Santa Rosa Junior College. He brought with 
him a love for sports and he was a big asset to the company 
basketball, Softball and volleyball teams. Never one to let aca- 
demics get the better of him, "Setts" always managed to schedule 
enough Bull courses to stay one short jump ahead of the Science 
and Engineering Departments. His friendly personality has won 
him many close and long lasting friendships during his four years 
here. He works hard and plays hard and his attitude of making the 
most out of each day will make him a welcome addition to the 
profession he has chosen. 



As an Army brat. Bob had his share of traveling before coming 
to the Nava! Academy. Stateside living was interspersed with 
overseas stays. Bob was able to attend his last four years of public 
school in one place though, and came to the Academy right after 
graduating from J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, 
Virginia. At USNA, Bob's decision to major in Italian and minor in 
foreign affairs testified to his preference for the humanities, 
though Science courses usually managed to claim most of his 
study time. Bob's interest in the military should be rewarded by a 
long service career. 


Don, a native Californian, came to the Naval Academy after a 
year at Monterey Peninsula College and proceeded to establish 
himself as one of the outstanding members of our class. He always 
worked hard academically and his permanent membership on the 
Dean's and Superintendent's Lists while completing the difficult 
Aero Major, as well as his selection as a Trident Scholar in 
Engineermg, were honors well deserved. His athletic endeavors were 
divided evenly among the soccer field, tennis courts and weight 
room — not to mention weekend trips with the Scuba Club. What 
ever field Don may choose to enter after graduation his competi- 
tive attitude, sharp wit and easy going personality are certain to 
insure his ultimate success. 


Roger, or more familiarly, "the Horn", hails from that part of 
Dixie known as Charlotte, North Carolina. Although plagued by 
several misconceptions about Academy life, he put aside his pre- 
ferences and proceeded to take a large part in Plebe indoctrination 
during his "Freshman" year. Roger wasn't exactly a Trident Schol- 
ar, but somehow he managed to find time for the Glee Club and 
Chapel Choir as well as for advanced research in the fields of 
sports cars, skin diving and hunting. In Roger the Navy stands to 
gain an outstanding officer 


Tom came straight from high school and adjusted quickly 
though unwillingly, to the somewhat different environment of 
Bancroft Hall. Well known for his athletic prowess, Wandy starred 
on Brigade championship basketball, tennis and volleyball teams. 
Equally well known for his exploits on weekends and leave pe- 
riods, Wandy helped provide dates for classmates not endowed 
with his natural gifts. Not a natural prof pleaser, Wandy managed 
to find just the right balance between study and his more pressing 
interests. His easy going and friendly nature have made him many 
lasting friendships. An all around individual, Tom's qualities will 
insure that success will be his wherever he chooses to find it. 


Ed, an Air Force brat, likes to call Elmwood, Wisconsin home, 
but you would have a hard time attempting to find his actual 
hometown. He led the usual military nomadic life and attended 
the University of Maryland in Munich, Germany and the Univer- 
sity of Portland before finally settling in Annapolis, Ed quickly 
adjusted to Navy academics, almost always keeping one step ahead 
of the Academic Board. After spending plebe year on the crew 
team, he chose to move indoors and became a standout on the 
squash courts. Ed spent his summers attending survival school and 
jump school. His willingness to work and competitive spirit will be 
a definite asset to himself and the service. 


From the heart of Dixie, Cedartown, Georgia, Ted came north 
in search of an education and a commission. His idea of carefree 
happy college years was soon destroyed by plebe summer and then 
the more permanent realities of academic year. Although not one 
to be found in the hall on weekends, his habit of hard work during 
the week saw him in good stead. A good swimmer, he managed 
many free periods while the Physical Ed Department made swim- 
mers of the rest of us. Ted's ready wit and his habit of hard work 
will be of invaluable assistance in the fleet.

Although the Seventeenth has always had one of the lowest 
academic standings in the Brigade, the thirty of us will graduate as the 
largest connpany. We have lost a few nnen during our stay, but by 
acquiring those stubborn five year men our number has remained 
constant. Not to differ from other companies we had our share of 
barbers and corn poppers. At our frequent parties we generally get 
along well as a group. In the hall, however, we have our share of 
spacemen and persecution complexes. After spending two years in the 
Twenty-Third with Navy men, we were a little leary about coming 
under the eyes of a Marine. Then again most of us never did see the 
Major's eyes. Although our sports teams were never excellent we 
always had a good time. That was our major occupation at Navy, 
trying to have a good time.

MAJ D. B. Conaty, USMC 



Scott, a Navy junior who could, and would, call just about 
anyplace home, came to the Academy on a Presidential ap- 
pointment after graduating from Fort Union Military Academy. 
An affinity for words and the humanities served him well in the 
Bull Department and balanced out his sometimes less than suc- 
cessful endeavors in other academic areas. A foreign affairs minor 
he was active in the Foreign Affairs Club. As a Plebe and J.V. 
soccer player Scott met with some success while adding his efforts 
to intramural squash and sailing teams in the other seasons. Scott's 
enthusiasm and determination should stand him in good stead 
whatever he tries. 


Cat, a native Wasiiingtonian, graduated from Anacostia High in 
1962 and commenced his Naval career by enlisting in the Navy. 
After three years of service and qualification in submarines, Cat 
received his orders to NAPS where he won his appointment to the 
Academy. During Plebe and Youngster years. Cat stuck to the 
'Core' courses in order to establish an academic foundation from 
which he went on to overload in second and first class years. As a 
lifelong "gun buff", Cat was glad to fire for Navy in Plebe pistol 
and varsity rifle and to devote much of his free time to the Gun 
Club. The rest of his free time was spent in the shops of Isherwood 
Hall. Cat's intentions are to continue his career, and to further his 
education in a postgraduate program. 


"Bulbous" came to the hallowed halls on the Severn via New 
Mexico Military Institute and NAPS. As a result of numerous 
injuries. Bob made the transition from varsity football to social 
chairman with relative ease. There is little on any subject he 
doesn't know, except of course, the Academy's core curriculum. 
However, through exacting patience and diligence, he succeeded in 
attaining the allusive 2.0. When not studying or planning his next 
entertainment extravaganza, he was sure to be found in the 'bag.' 
The "omniscient one" will be quick to make an immediate 
success; his devotion to duty and desire to excel will carry Bob far 
wherever his choice takes him. 


Steve, "Auggie" Beaulieu came to Navy from the University of 
Maine. With his year of college life behind him, he quickly gained 
the respect and admiration of the rest of us with his maturity and 
easy going manner. Though Auggie was a star swimmer in high 
school, his other athletic talents were well known and he was 
eagerly sought after by the company football and baseball teams. 
But Steve's real skills were not confined to athletics alone and if 
Steve should ever decide to leave the Navy, the Barber's Union will 
find severe competition. Aug's sense of humor and his sincere 
interest in other people will be a big asset to him in his Naval 


Nelson, or Nels, hails from Orlando, Florida. Coming to the 
Academy after a year at Florida Presbyterian College, Nels soon 
put his brain and small size to use. Academics were no problem, 
and he found time to put a lot of work into varsity gymnastics and 
crew. He also found time to amuse and entertain his roommates 
and friends with his guitar playing and folk singing. But even with 
these activities, he still found time on weekends for one of his 
favorite sports — girls. Nelson is a conscientious, hard worker who 
has a fine naval career ahead of him. 


Randy, a native of South Carolina, came to the Academy 
immediately following graduation from North Charleston High 
School. His irrespressible desire to succeed was displayed in his 
being a consistent member of the Superintendent's List and a star 
man several times. Every afternoon he could be seen coxswaining a 
sleek shell down the Severn on the crew team. But probably his 
favorite experience was the Plebe Detail. While involved in various 
Christian and musical activities, it was always the goal of becoming 
a good officer that occupied the highest place. 



"R. L." travelled to Navy only to trade Air Force blue for Navy 
blue. He offered to many a father image and in return they taught 
him "the ways of the world." As a willing subject, taking the 
country out of the boy proved an easy task with Dick. Though his 
academic career began ignominously, R. L. overcame his diffi- 
culties and excelled. Always swayed by a pretty face, Dick's heart 
circulated like a library book. He "courted" many a lass looking 
for "it"; i.e., the real thing. As old age hit R. L., he slowed his 
pace. But in sports he continued to play like a young buck. Dick's 
easy attitude should combine well with a Navy career. 


Bob, a native of Groton, Connecticut, came to the Naval 
Academy from The Manlius School in New York. A Cadet Colonel 
there, he soon became known to his many friends here as the 
"Colonel". Having no fear of hard work Bob displayed diligence 
both in his academics and on the athletic fields. Despite the 
Colonel's definite affinity for the pad, he took extra courses 
because "I won't know what to do with my extra time." At the 
same time he quarterbacked the two victorious Turkey Bowl 
football teams and was a leading hitter for the company's baseball 
team. His qualities of industriousness, sincerity and devotion to 
duty will surely bring Bob as great success in the Naval Service as 
they have at USNA. 


Tony came to us from the sunny plains of "Jersey". His 
prowess in all fields was evident to those working with him. He 
could hear the sound of those 52's hitting each other three wings 
away. If he didn't know the game he'd learn it, but the old adage: 
"Lucky in cards, unlucky in love" wasn't applicable in Tony's 
case. He couldn't draw a winning hand in either game. In a 
concerted effort to avoid academics, Tony concentrated on de- 
veloping his pocket billiards game, and discovered his forte in the 
battalion recreation rooms. Though Tony's "Midshipman pro- 
fessionalism" is dubious, he will be a fine officer. 


Cow Cow, as he is affectionately called, came to Mother B from 
the thriving metropolis of Mt. Lakes, New Jersey. Bobby lost little 
time in displaying his athletic talents. He played number 1 on the 
tennis, squash, and first string for the Mitey Mites. He was a major 
contributing factor to Navy's National Championship Squash 
team. Despite his athletic commitments, he always found the time 
to make the most of his scarce free weekends, including the 
Saturday night sprint from Gate O. As for academics, he will 
always be remembered for his tireless quest for the gouge. 


Dale came to the Academy straight from high school in his 
hometown of Spokane, Washington. Applying himself to aca- 
demics, he became known to some of his classmates as 4.0 Crit. 
Besides maintaining a high academic standing. Dale has had time 
to fence foil on the varsity fencing team and qualify for the 
Olympic Trials in 1968. Besides girls. Dale's major recreational 
interest is folk music. Dale, always being open to requests for help 
from his classmates, was a source of "gouge" for many people. 
Coming from the Rocky Mountains, Dale is a hard and willing 
worker who will make an excellent contribution to the Naval 


Known to his friends as "Flans," and to the Plebes as "Uncle 
Flans," Jeff came to Annapolis after one year at L. A. State. Plebe 
year, his easy-going personality quickly made him many friends, 
unfortunately few of those were his seniors. His reputation as an 
expert mechanic soon grew. Many "straight-arrows" who had a 
tendency to bend upon occasion came to Jeff for advice about 
their cars. Throughout the year "Flans" could be found in the 
natatorium teaching scuba. Jeff is a hard worker but can always 
find time to help someone else. With this attribute, "Flans" will 
make a welcome addition to the officer corps. 



Fred entered the Academy without any previous education 
derived from his stay at Gushing Academy. His ears have earned 
him renown throughout the Brigade and in his hometown of 
Whitehall, Michigan. During his visit at the Academy, Fred held 
studying in such high esteem that he often felt himself too 
unworthy to indulge in any. As a junior member of "Hell's 
Angels," his one desire in life is to lead his own chapter down 
Route 50. Fred exhibited his athletic prowess as a member of the 
Plebe and J.V. soccer teams. He was also a valuable asset to the 
intramural teams. Fred's easy-going nature will make him a much 
needed tranquilizer for some ulcerated CO. 


Jim hails from the Windy City and St. Lawrence High School. 
Whenever the Warsaw Warrior could be found out of the pad, he 
was fending off Pollock jokes or playing football. Jim was 
convinced that studying caused cancer. Despite his distaste for 
academics, Jim compiled a respectable academic standing through 
skillful integration of inate intelligence and his demi-god — The 
Gouge. But Gierucks will best be remembered for his feats on the 
gridiron. He worked his way up to earn his place on the Big Blue 
Team and an N-star. It is this same determination and ability to 
quickly grasp the essence of a strange situation that will make Jim 
a truly fine Naval officer. 




At the last minute, Larry turned down Hudson High and 
decided to take his search for knowledge to Severn's shore. And 
search he did; Larry took his studying seriously. In fact, studying 
came a close second only to telling non-Hoosiers about the marvels 
of Indiana, particularly the thriving town of Evansville, which 
Larry calls home. Hages also took sports seriously, figuring that if 
you were going to play, you may as well play to win. A real 
competitor, Larry takes naturally to sports and was a standout on 
the intramural fields. We are sure that Larry, with his strong 
religious convictions and hard working nature, will be a success in 
what ever he undertakes. 


It was Upper Dublin' High's misfortune to graduate their 
favorite son and send him off to U.S.N. A. where he has devoured 
his $40,000 education. By virtue of his bulky physique, Jim 
quickly acquired the nickname "Rail." His well-rounded talents 
have been displayed in all aspects of Academy life. Many a referee 
has been smitten by harsh words from the "Rail" after making a 
bad call. It has become routine in the company to hear of the test 
that "Rail" bombed by merely getting an "A"; and it is not 
uncommon to hear one say, "Ask Rail, he knows." No matter 
what phase of the Naval Service he may choose, "Rail" will 
continue to shame women and shock little children. 


A native Californian, Deck came to the Academy after having 
spent a year at Long Beach State College. The son of a career 
Naval Officer, he was well acquainted with military life, and easily 
adapted to Bancroft's as well. After a year on the Plebe heavy- 
weight crew, he turned his attention to intramurals, rowing in the 
Brigade championship boat Youngster year. West Coast-bred lib- 
eral minded Deck could accept others on their own merits and 
approach anyone's point of view with an open mind. His aware- 
ness of the surrounding world let him speak intelligently on any 
subject, a quality necessary for anyone aspiring to be an officer 
and gentleman. 


Hailing from Hot Springs, Arkansas, Phil made his way out of 
the South after a year at Texas A & M and into a suit of Navy 
Blue. Track and 150 lb. football were his games and many hours 
were spent showing bewildering eyes his blinding speed; an asset 
which brought him the nickname Jet. Competence in academics 
was also an important facet of his stay at Navy. He must have had 
a reserved seat at the library. No academic obstacle seemed too tall 
for Phil— even if it took half the night to scale. Besides being a fine 
student and athlete, Jet devoted much of his time to the D & B, 
The Foreign Relations Club and the Russian Club. A fine sense of 
humor rounded off Phil's many other traits. 



E. T., known popularly as the "Root of all Evil" came to 
USNA after graduating from Portland, Oregon's U.S. Grant High 
School. Never really troubled by the pressures of the academic 
routine, E. T. soon found the underside of his eyelids more 
interesting, and studied them diligently. Rick's ready smile and 
quick wit won him many friends throughout the Brigade, and his 
athletic prowess made him a much sought after man for company 
teams. Wherever he goes in the Naval Service, Rick's fine character 
and pleasing personality will definitely benefit the people with 
whom he serves. 


John, a Southern gentleman at heart, hails from Monroeville, 
Alabama where he became proficient with a bass horn and with his 
bass violin. Plebe year came as no surprise to John and when the 
gymnastics coach noticed him John was on his way to becoming 
an accomplished gymnast. Affectionately known as "The Lizard", 
John was not one to be seen wandering around during study hour. 
He dropped gym to go out for varsity academics and played 
cat-and-mouse with the academic department from then on. 
However, "J. J." remained inspired towards a Navy career and as 
he gestures goodbye to Mother B the halls will echo with his battle 
cry, "Save your Dixie cups, the South will rise again!" 


"Easy Earl" or "The Big E", came to the 17th Company as a 
five year man, and quickly stood out both leading potential and as 
an outstanding personality. "Easy" looks to the California coast 
and home for his sun, fun and a tall, cold, well loved Coors. He 
takes pride in being known as a fun devil, and is quick to rally a 
slow evening with wit and spirit. Earl's academics were his soft 
spot, playing most of his Management Minor courses by ear on his 
pillow. His athletics shined in everything he did, from bowling, to 
yielding a pool cue, to catching a T. D. pass in the Turkey Bowl. 
Just to know Earl is to know he will be a fine upstanding graduate. 


Bob came to Navy from Valatie, New York. Although never a 
"slash". Manhunt managed to keep his head above the waterline 
and he never allowed the books to stand m the way of a good 
time. After countless hours on the soccer field, Bob's tremendous 
hustle and ability won him his goal of an N star. However, 
Manhunt's claim to fame came at the expense of his friends as he 
was the master of the sick joke, but unusual sense of humor 
always added the right touch to any gathering. His easygoing 
manner also won him numerous friends throughout the Brigade. 
Bob's perseverance and strong sense of duty will make him a 
welcome addition anywhere he goes. 


Jim was bred for the Navy in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where 
he attended Parkland High School. The son of a '26 graduate of 
these hallowed halls, he came here realizing full well what was in 
store for him. He was best known for his running feud with the 
Academic Board, somehow always managing to stay one jump 
ahead of the Dean. Jim was a fanatic when it came to track and 
cross country, but then maybe it was all that distance work that 
kept him "one jump ahead." Despite what he may think, his 
greatest assets are his unbeatable professionalism and the desire to 
see a job done right. With these strong points, Jim will be a 
welcome addition to any command he may join. 


Jim first began to love the water in abundance in his home state 
— Nevada. Coming from Las Vegas, he developed a quick thinking, 
mathematical mind early in life, though it was seldom applied to 
his studies. Jim's knowledge of chemistry was often useful in 
tutoring plebes; he saved many from the perils of the academic 
board. The boat house occupied much of Jim's time during the 
crew season; making weight always meant few desserts and lots of 
work. He always managed to get lots of sleep at night, since free 
periods were a rare thing. Jim's combination of intelligence, 
common sense, and confidence will surely make him an out- 
standing asset to the Navy. 



Lanny came straight from high school in Illinois to Canoe U. 
Finding academics to his liking, he almost always posted at least a 
3.00 average and frequently made the Superintendent's List. 
Although usually carrying an overload, Lanny was never too busy 
to help a buddy with studies or a date for the weekend. After 
being a star athlete in high school, Lanny won a letter in plebe 
track and was a standout on the battalion track teams. Living from 
weekend to weekend, Lanny was quick to make the Baltimore or 
Washington run when Saturday afternoon rolled around. Lanny's 
ability to work and play hard, along with his unique personality 
will no doubt make him an outstanding naval officer. 


Art traded the world of Greenville, South Carolina for the 
horizons of the Naval Academy in order to broaden himself. While 
he was here he played intramurals very well, helping the batt 
tennis team win the Brigades. He also played basketball and 
football with a great amount of enthusiasm and he was one of the 
stars that humbled the plebes in the great "Turkey Bowl." 
Academics never consumed much of his time so Art had plenty of 
time to devote to his favorite pastimes which were playing pool, 
reading and sleeping. Art's ability to concentrate on the problem 
at hand will make him a very valuable addition to whatever part of 
the service he chooses. 


After overcoming an intense desire to return to Statesville, 
North Carolina, Salty settled down to the rigors of Plebe year. His 
height earned him a position on the company basketball and 
volleyball teams, while his aloofness enabled him to remain 
unaffected by his surroundings. As a Management major. Salty had 
little alternative but to spend most of his hours in the rack. 
Despite his frequent succumbing to the sandman, he often found 
himself on the Supt's List. Regardless of his service selection. Salty 
should make a good C. O. 


Lon honored our halls for only four short years but we will 
long remember him. He was always ready to give his aid to all who 
needed it, from drawing colorful posters to encouraging an 
"unsat" roomie. Lon had a fervent desire to become a sailor back 
in his home in St. Johnsville, New York, and the Academy showed 
him it was Navy for him, tho' Aero often gave him a late night. 
Lon spent many hours in the air, too, with his travels between 
"Mother B" and a nursing school in Kentucky. With his ever 
constant diligence and hard work, good humor and warm friend- 
ship, Lon will prove one of the best officers in the Navy and in the 


Steve came to Navy from the Loyola School in New York City, 
and soon made a name for himself as one of the hardest workers in 
the Brigade. Due to his organizational ability and tremendous 
amount of common sense. Moon often found himself the head of 
numerous projects which naturally left little time for the books. 
The fall season usually found Moon putting his football team 
through a rough practice in preparation for the annual Turkey 
Bowl game. He must be the only football coach to retire 
undefeated. Wherever he may go in the Navy, Steve will carry his 
great sense and warm personality with him to enrich the lives of 
the people around him. 


Neal came to Navy in his levis and mocs from Massapequa Park, 
New York. Although he was straight out of high school, Neal 
quickly adapted to the rigorous life of a plebe. His oft-heard 
laughter and happy feet have brought him the title of Crazy Neal. 
Although he had problems keeping his head above water in the 
pool, he had little trouble with the academic department. Neal is 
an avid sports fan and displayed his skills in a few of them on the 
intramural field. Neal was always out to have a good time, 
however, on occasion the Executive Department did not quite 
agree with him. Neal's helpful personality has gained him many 
friends at Navy.

For the most part there is a certain pride among the members of 
this company. It shelters some of the best barbers, boxers, clowns, 
and zookeepers in the Brigade. The eighteenth is a loud company. It is 
famous among some of our highly striped classmates for its good time 
outlook. It leads the way in a major policy revision of the Plebe 
system. It is the seat of wargamong in the Brigade. The eighteenth

Phil, affectionately known to his many friends as "Filthy 
Phil," came to the Academy straight from high school in Medford, 
Massachusetts. After arriving at the "Quagmire", as he liked to 
refer to the Academy, he immediately began the good fight with 
the academic department. Never one to take anything too seri- 
ously, Phil derived his greatest pleasures from the weekends, where 
he soon became a prominent figure on the Annapolis — D. C. 
scene. Probably his greatest asset was the fact that he found 
humor in everything he encountered, a quality which aided him 
during his frequent restriction periods, Phil's bouyant personality 
and quick mind ensures him success in what ever field he chooses. 


Kent, first graced the Academy in June 1965 to become a 
member of our elite class after graduating from DeSales High 
School in Lockport, New York. Plebe summer posed no problems 
for the industrious Yankee, and he also managed to skate through 
Plebe year as a member of the Glee Club, Drum & Bugle Corps, 
Catholic Choir and Portuguese Club. No man should be able to do 
so much and still keep a 3.00! After attempting to assume the role 
of superman during June Week '67, he validated Second Class 
Summer, but managed to bounce back to share his familiar smile 
and lightheartedness with the boys. Surely Kent can be voted most 
likely to succeed as a fellow '69er. 


An Air Force brat, "Dibbs" came to us from the far off land of 
Alaska. Well liked by everyone, he made friends easily wherever he 
went. He was a hard worker in the field of academics and was 
frequently a member of the Superintendent's List. Ron's tremen- 
dous athletic ability made him a standout in company sports, and 
his avid enthusiasm for skiing excused him from Spring parades 
Youngster Year. Also known as a guitar-strumming minstrel, Ron 
could always be found playing his 12-string during his free time. 
His weekends were seldom without the companionship of the 
opposite sex. With Ron's strength of character and competitive 
desire he will make a tremendous asset to the Naval Service in all 
his endeavors. 


Conway, South Carolina gave up its favorite son in June '65 
when the P. R. roared into USNA prepared to serve his country 
and ready to make his mark. Answering to Mag or Skinny, Perry 
was always ready to help a classmate or express an opinion. The 
free medical service so intrigued him that P. R. had his lung cut in 
May of Plebe year, and unsatisfied, returned again the following 
year to get his money's worth. A man of unlimited personality, P. 
R. ran the company entertainment center (his room) and with the 
possible exception of a misdeal in the summer of '42, met every 
challenge offered him. USNA lost a colorful individual with his 


The Hoosier State gave up one of its finest citizens when 
"Eppe" decided to make Navy his way of life. He was graduated 
from Hauser High School where he stood number one in his class. 
As a midshipman, Steve continued his mastery over academic 
endeavors. He could always be found studying the backs of his 
eyelids on the blue trampoline, and his grades were still above 
3.00. When he wasn't sleeping, Steve was running. He was a 
member of the varsity cross-country and track teams his Second 
Class and First Class years. Not only an athlete and scholar, Eppe 
is one of the finest gentlemen to ever pass through the doors of 
Mother Bancroft. Wherever the Navy finds a place for him, Steve 
will undoubtedly excel, for excelling has become a habit with him. 



Ken arrived on the shores of the Severn from Seattle, Washing- 
ton. Knowing perhaps more about the Navy than the rest of the 
company combined, he became our indispensable adjunct to 
Jane's Fighting Ships. Not satisfied with his knowledge of the 
present, he was soon delving into the past over in the Bull 
Department. The energy with which Ken approached everything 
he did saw him finally on the Supt's and Dean's Lists. In addition, 
"The Ciees" was busy in other activities like the Gun Club, 
Trident, Spanish Club and after a year rowing Plebe Crew, suc- 
ceeding years found him a member of the battalion crew and 
championship tennis teams. With his energy and ability Ken 
should make a successful career in any line he chooses. 


Mel came to Crabtown from sunny California, but being a 
Navy Junior, has also called McLean, Boston and China Lake his 
home since Plebe year. An ardent seaman, Mel soon discovered the 
YP Squadron and became one of its most dedicated members. 
Afternoons in the Spring and Fall would find Mel and his crew 
cruising the bay trying hard not to go aground or ram the seawall. 
During the Winter months, he applied his talents to the company 
football teams, helping them achieve some remarkable seasons. In 
between sleeping and studying, Mel also found time for the French 
and Scuba clubs. Dedicated to the Navy, Mel is sure to rise to the 
top and excel in whatever he does. 


After spending four carefree years in high school becoming an 
ail-American boy, the scent of the sea became so strong in Culver, 
Indiana, that Harold couldn't resist and gave his bid to Navy. An 
avid camera-bug. Bob at one time or another owned enough 
equipment to outfit an MGM production crew. To the distress of a 
few and the enjoyment of many. Bob specialized in candid shots 
and amassed a creditable library of compromising situations. An 
accomplished endurance swimmer and distance runner, Harold 
annually did battle again and again with the P. T. Department. 
Bob is a natural leader and commands the respect of all who know 
him. With these assets we can see nothing in Bob's future but clear 
skies and smooth sailing. 


Tom or "Nagah" is the pride of Seaford, New York and came 
to the Academy right from high school. Being a Long Islander, he 
is naturally a lacrosse player, and he helped lead both the Plebe 
and Varsity teams to many a victory. Academics proved to be no 
sweat for Tom, and many a classmate will attest to his rare ability 
to unravel the mysteries of skinny or Math. Nagah, a confirmed 
believer in the merits of sleep, could be found in his pad during 
any free period. Tom's gentlemanly manner and sound standard of 
values will assure continued success after graduation. 


Jim came from Eagle, Wisconsin, to join the glitter and tinsel 
of the Brigade. This hard worker soon gave up his free afternoons 
to the Varsity crew team. His quick wit and friendly manner won 
him many lifelong friends. Next to crew Jim liked the "Bag" best of 
all. You could always tell when he had a good weekend by the 
blown hair and the number of bugs in his teeth when he gave his 
big friendly smile. With his high native intelligence, Jim had no 
trouble with academics once he entered the field of management. 
At 6'5", Jim literally stands head and shoulders above his class- 
mates and promises to be one of the most outstanding leaders in 
the fleet from the class of '69. 


Straight from Torrington, Wyoming, and high school flashed 
the innocent "Wyoming Whippet." The Whip met every challenge 
the Academy presented, from "perennial carry-on" as a Plebe 
basketball player to the rigors of Academics Anonymous which he 
frequented nightly in the Brigade Library. During his few mo- 
ments of free time (away from the library) Paul endeavored 
unrelentingly to meet the challenges presented by his admirers 
from the ranks of the fairer sex. From academics, to young 
maidens, to athletics the Whippet always strived to succeed. His 
determination and outstanding personality will forever be valuable 
assets in his life as an officer. His friendship will long be valued 
highly by all who knew him. 



John came to the shores of the Severn from St. George's 
School in Newport, Rhode Island. Being a Navy junior, he came 
knowing a good deal about the Navy and its way of life, and soon 
came to learn much more, setting a record of sorts with his nearly 
annual east coast cruise. Known to some as "Skinny" because of 
his slim appearance, John could be found gracing Navy's soccer 
field as a varsity participant. His many and varied interests, from 
art and literature to sports and Navy p-rades, made him a well- 
rounded individual, ready to take charge and to assume the re- 
sponsibilities and challenges of a Naval career. With his determina- 
tion and dedication, John will be a welcome addition to the fleet. 


The Ozarks, Neosho, Missouri, to be exact, prepared this un- 
tamed lad for the rigorous life here at Navy. "The Scab" managed 
to make excellent grades Plebe year despite frequent and vigorous 
exercise. Always the life of any party Joey never allowed his night 
life to interfere with academics and could often be seen pushing a 
pencil and slide rule far into the night. When not hitting the 
books, Joey's attention was directed either toward the tennis 
courts and fieldball fields where his desire and hustle always made 
him a standout, or toward women and cars when away from 
athletics. His excellent grades, willingness to work, desire to suc- 
ceed and excellent sense of humor will make Joey an outstanding 
addition to the fleet upon graduation. 


Dave, known to some as "Sparky," came to Navy via a Presidential 
appointment from the sunny climes of Costa Mesa, California. 
Although the life of a year at Orange Coast Junior College was not 
very comparable to Plebe year at USNA, Dave was able to adapt 
well to the rigors of the "lower Estate." A solid Navy background 
had convinced him of what he wanted and prepared him for life at 
"Navy." Dave's fighting spirit, always present on the athletic fields 
of endeavor, carried him through two salty Youngster tours of 
duty, back on and near the sandy beaches of the West Coast. The 
Naval Service will find Dave a credit to the standards it upholds. 


Mike came to Navy via Bullis from Hawaii. It was hard to leave 
his surfboard behind but he managed the transition from beach 
boy to midshipman quite well. Mike was a standout in whatever 
sport he participated in, from soccer to company sports. Young- 
ster year brought the first of Mike's many bouts with the academic 
department, but somehow he always managed to pull through, 
especially during finals. He was well known for clowning around 
during study hour and hardly a night passed without a visit from 
him. Most of the weekends that weren't spent with the Executive 
Department, found Mike in the company of one of the fairer sex. 
With his tremendous desire, Mike will make an outstanding officer. 



California lost a bit of sunshine when Meds left for the Acad- 
emy. Plebe Summer found Meds as 4/c Regimental Boxing Cham- 
pion. The upperclass should have taken note because he powered 
his way to the Brigade Championship to be the first '69er to win 
his Varsity "N". Academics posed no real problem to Bill, a Math 
slash, but his 3.00 was always a little shaky. Meds was the most 
feared 2/c squad leader Plebe Summer as any member of '71 will 
attest. Bill was an enterprising midshipman and consequently was 
no stranger to restriction musters. His good nature and active 
interest in the Navy should make Bill a great addition to the Naval 


A year at Purdue was the stepping stone between Beavercreek, 
Ohio and the Academy for "Qua." Besides being active in the 
NROTC program, he managed a 3.39 in the Electrical Engineering 
curriculum. Finding that wires at USNA was some sort of magic 
done with mirrors, he quickly switched to management where he 
excelled. He managed to get into the Antiphonal Choir, even 
though he couldn't carry a tune in a tin pail. However, most of his 
time was spent at the pool as varsity swimming manager, or 
playing a hard game of water polo for the batt. His gregarious 
nature and quick wit have made "Qua" many friends who are 
justified in expecting nothing but the best from him. 


John arrived at Navy a day earlier than the rest of the class, 
coming to the Marble Monastery via NAPS. Homeported in 
Rochester, New York he always had a few girls on the line and 
could be depended upon for a phone number of two. Academics 
wereagrindfor J. T., but he worked hard and could usually supply 
answers to those tough problems dealing with magic, J. T., some- 
times known as the "Aqua Rock", enjoyed his career as varsity 
gym manager. Although he worked hard, he didn't let the finer 
things in life pass him by. Always remembered for his quick and 
warm personality, John is headed right for the top! 


Joining the Navy "to see the world", Mike arrived in Crabtown 
from sunny California in search of new horizons. Mike's insatiable 
interest in literature prevented him from slashing out in his steam 
and skinny courses, but he didn't allow the thought to keep him 
awake at night. In the afternoons, when not working out on the 
blue trampoline, he could be found swinging his racquet on the 
squash or tennis court. Other activities included the Spanish Club, 
a year on the Log Staff, the BAC and the one pursuit that we all 
have in common. "Vance" has an excellent sense of humor and an 
appreciation of the finer things in life which, combined with his 
high personal standards, should lead him to an eventful and 
rewarding career. 


Rich came to the banks of the Severn upon graduation from 
high school in Johnson City, Tennessee. Bringing from its rolling 
hills his rich, flowing southern accent and personable manner, he 
consistently endeavored to be the best in all things he undertook. 
A standout on the battalion tennis and swimming teams, he was 
always a sportsman with a ready smile. As a member of the 
French, Al AA, and Scuba Club, this Tennessee lad still found time 
to study in the field of Aerospace Engineering. He was among the 
most proficient in the company in academics. A good-natured 
soul. Rich possesses the determination and great spirit that will 
make him a acredit to our nation's Navy. 



Bob came to the Naval Academy from the carefree existence as 
an Air Force brat. While the Navy way of life came as a shock, he 
found life in Bancroft bearable. Bob's devotion to order and logic 
was demonstrated by his choice of study in Operations Analysis. 
He could find application of these techniques in nearly all phases 
of his ordered life. On weekends. Bob could usually be found 
dragging or playing tennis. A devoted athlete Bob found great 
enjoyment in all sports, especially those aquatic. His great love of 
water makes the Navy a most logical choice for his career. Bob's 
unquestionable sincerity and honesty made him a fine classmate 
and will assure his success in whatever he chooses to undertake. 


After deciding to cram four years of training and preparation 
towards graduation and a commission into five. Bo settled down 
to breeze through Naval Academy life in his own inimitable 
manner. Not the least known of his feats is the fact that he once 
slept for 36 straight hours (with the help of a chit from Sick Bay) 
and rumor has it that his daily average was up in the high teens. He 
did manage to be awake long enough to excel on both the varsity 
lacrosse and football teams; however, the sounds of his guitar 
could be heard every evening around study hour time. Whatever he 
chooses Bo is certain to become a success. 


Hank, hailing from the state of Ohio, made the transition from 
civilian to naval officer quite easily and readily. He worked dili- 
gently and without failure in the field of academics. More often 
than not Hank wore stars through his efforts to complete the 
difficult curriculum required by an Aerospace Engineering major. 
His interest in Naval aviation was also demonstrated in his activi- 
ties with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. 
Omar's tremendous competitive spirit and desire to excel was 
carried over into athletics where he was continually one of the 
standouts for many fine teams. Along with his professional and 
academic prowess. Hank's high sense of personal honor and integ- 
rity will make him an outstanding shipmate wherever he may 


Brad joined the Brigade immediately after graduating from 
high school in the snowy wonderland of Holland, Michigan. He 
quickly adapted to life at Navy and being never content to be 
average in anything, he could often be found hard at work pushing 
around the iron in the weight room or the pencil on his desk. The 
"Big Red's" friendly, outgoing personality and willingness to help 
will earn him many lasting friendships wherever he may go. 
Among Brad's keener interests are cars, eating, soul sounds, sports 
and rum. His fierce desire to excel and ability to learn quickly will 
certainly make Spahrly stand out wherever he goes. 


Being a Navy junior, "Fat Jack" had little trouble conforming 
to the rigors of Academy life. In fact, he made it look easy. Free 
periods generally found him relaxing in his room or soaking up a 
little sun. Never one to refuse friendly competition, a great deal of 
his spare time was spent on the tennis or basketball court. Though 
friendly, you could always count on his agressiveness and skill to 
inspire the play or his teammates as well as his opponents. Acade- 
mics caused minor problems but Jack was always ready to give and 
receive help whenever possible. His big smile, which was recog- 
nized throughout the Brigade, won him many very close friends 
and was welcome at any social affair. Jack'sdrive and determina- 
tion will prove to be very important assets in the years to come. 


Dave, equally well-known as "Iodine", "D. C." and "The 
Washington Shake", came from the last Frontier of the Old West, 
Arizona. Hiking and riding didn't exactly prepare Dave for the 
Navy, but once through Plebe year and after a thrilling Youngster 
cruise on an AKA he knew this was where he wanted to stay. 
Deciding to develop to the fullest in all directions Dave started a 
weightlifting program, eventually joining the batt weightlifting 
team. Working just as diligently in the academic department, Dave 
was soon on the Superintendent's List. He quickly found that the 
resulting extra liberty was very useful: once the opposite sex 
discovered the tall, rangy Arizonan there was hardly a weekend he 
wasn't dragging. Dave's unfailing good humor and genuine interest 
in people won him many friends and should see him will through

Members of the 19th Company are easily recognized throughout 
the Brigade. Most everyone knows of their affinity for "recon" 
haircuts. All the Plebes and any upperclass who reads about his 
misconduct in triplicate are sporting them. Perhaps the most impres- 
sive feat performed by the company was turned in by the heavyweight 
football team. Undefeated in regular play, they swept through the 
divisional and regimental eliminations, and won the Brigade cham- 
pionship match on a windswept Hospital Point. The social highlight of 
the year has to be the impending nuptials of the Company Officer. All 
are anxious to see what influence married life will have on him. The 
19th Company is a proud company. It has left a lasting impression of 
scholastic effort, athletic excellence, and military superiority on the

Bruce came from Eighteenth Company, /Received by us into 
our ranks, /Until we saw his energy, we/Could not know with what 
great thanks./ Each time he helps us with our books, /Councils and 
advises, /Heads turn, eyes roll, we exchange looks, /And every eye- 
brow rises. /Returning from his tactics drills, /Lost and hopelessly 
searching, he/Eagerly bags it with a will, /So he won't have to go 
marching. /And as we all march and sweat and strain, /Doing our 
best for old Nineteen, /Adams rests by using his brain, and/Making 
the best of the Sailing Team./Salutamus. 


Paul, a native of California, spent his four years at Navy con- 
vinced that the Academy should have been located in the Golden 
State. An avid hunter, Paul is looking forward to graduation when 
he can once again pursue his favorite pastime to a limited degree. 
Not possessing the love of the sea common to most successful line 
officers, Paul is anticipating a career that will combine his hobby 
with a profession. 


Big Bish, sporting an all-Michigan basketball position, chose 
Navy as the team to lead to the NCAA Championship. His plans 
were ruined but not by his own inability. However, the "Douger" 
was quickly accepted on the proverbial major restrictors' team due 
to his hunger for Buzzy's pizza, his after taps liberty habits and his 
inability to endure long bus rides. Although healthy looking, due 
to his window ledge suntan, Doug was a very sickly person, but 
only on Wednesday afternoons. One day as they gaze admiringly 
at his tomb next to J. P. J.'s, a man will tell his son "Yes that's 
Bish, the only man Navy couldn't beat." 


Rick hails from the arid wasteland or plush tropical desert of 
Arizona, which ever you prefer. He either got his freckles and red 
hair from the hot dry weather at home or the sweet taste of 
College life he enjoyed at Arizona State before coming to Navy. 
The only man at the Academy to boast that his picture was put on 
a cover of TIME magazine for being a 'perpetual restrictee', he 
always had a way with women as those who are close to him well 
know. The haircut he'll never forget and his avid interest in the 
Marine Corps have earned him the nickname of Recon, while his 
subtle humor, crooked grin and outstanding potential as an officer 
are sure to be welcome. 


A 1964 graduate of Cranford High School in New Jersey, Dud 
first spent a year at Rutgers University and in the Naval Reserve 
before giving up college life for an appointment to USNA. Having 
played soccer and ice hockey at Rutgers, he played plebe soccer 
and still wishes that Navy had a hockey rink. Constantly on the 
Supt's or Dean's List, Dud managed to do this with as little time as 
possible spent pouring over the books. Although basically the 
quiet and shy type Dudley was always friendly and willing to help 
out a classmate. Working hard as an Aero major. Dud should be 
one of the "leanest and meanest" navigators in the Navy. 


Rabbit arrived at USNA with aspirations of putting the "Big 
Blue" back into the national football limelight. His high ideals 
were hampered, however, by a nearsighted coaching staff and a 
broken collarbone when he finally made the varsity. The "Bitsky" 
is known to his friends as a big, fast, tough, smart competitor. His 
achievements with the opposite sex are legend! The Bit's quick wit 
during his tenure here has constantly been almost too much to 
endure. As Ron makes that long deployment from the forecastle 
to the fantail of life, ultimately for that big promotion in the sky, 
where ever he passes by, people will say, "He was smiling'. He was 
smiling' that 'Big smile.'" 



Bert came to the Academy from Lynn English High, turning 
down several academic scholarships in the process. At the Acad- 
emy, Bert's interests changed from academics to athletics where he 
participated in the plebe soccer team, various company sports and 
was a noted standout performer on the swimming sub squad. He 
sometimes tended to become over exuberant on liberty and was 
often observed loitering in front of the Main Office on weekends. 
Bert plans to invest his money in stocks and make a killing before 
the depression hits. His sense of humor and keen devotion will 
serve him well as an officer of the Naval Service. 


Jeff, following in the grand traditions of Lord Nelson and 
Horatio Hornblower, embarked upon his Naval career directly 
from McLean High School, McLean, Virginia. A prolific reader and 
captivating conversationalist, he usually would prefer to retire to 
his personal library for a book than accept suggestions from the 
academic departments. Many of "Crawf's" seventh periods were 
pre-empted by the P. T. Department for additional instruction in 
the fine arts of running and boxing. His firm belief in the Plebe 
system and honor concept distinguished "The Shadow" as an 
exemplary midshipman. His dedication and love for the Naval 
Service and desire for action will certainly enable Jeff to prove 
himself a fine addition to the destroyer fleet. 


Jack came to the Academy from Easthampton, Massachusetts 
not knowing what was in store for him. Once settled for Plebe 
year he was a member of the Plebe soccer team but was soon to 
discover that his athletic abilities did not extend to the natato- 
rium. Apparently, a few extra sessions helped him because he's 
swimming better. His interests also lie elsewhere, namely in Navy's 
blue, horizontal escape capsule and in low, fast objects. Jack has 
always appreciated the good messhall food and that from home, 
too. Afternoons find him participating in his favorite sport or else 
exercising in one form or another. Always well liked by his 
classmates and easy to get along with. Jack will be a desirable 
addition to our Navy. 


Dave came to the Academy directly from Central High School 
in Manchester, New Hampshire. A fine all-around athlete, Dave 
played plebe and J.V. football before turning his efforts to the 
Fourth Battalion rugby team. An excellent swimmer and runner, 
his greatest enthusiasm was saved for skiing the hills of N. H. Math 
was Dave's "specialty" and though he had several close calls with 
the Academic Board, he always managed to come out on top. His 
efforts were rewarded by making the Supt's List Youngster year. 
Dark and handsome, he always had a smile for a pretty girl and 
could often be found writing a letter to one of his many admirers. 
His spirit and determination will make him a fine naval officer. 


Tom came to Navy from the ivy-covered walls of Cardinal 
Mindszenty High School. Since leaving the site of the world's 
largest one piece wooden flagpole, he has taken full advantage of 
what the Academy had to offer, academically and otherwise. 
Usually seen wearing stars, his low cut black tennis shoes are no 
strangers to the squash and tennis courts or the golf course. 
"Feds" has also spent much time in the smoke filled rooms of 
varsity debate tournaments and on the European rally circuit. 
Wherever he spends his first tour, Tom will be launching a career 
which is sure to be as successful as his tenure at USNA. 


Friendly, reliable, omnivorous and aallant — these are the 
qualities outstanding in theeveryday life of Bob Frangione. Bob 
came to the Naval Academy directly from high school where he 
was a standout performer in football and track. Having worked 
hard during plebe year, he found Youngster year a little less 
demanding. Bob never considered academics to be his primary 
interest but he could occasionally be observed spending long hours 
in the "horizontal lab." He longed for the good "college life" but 
sacrificed this to obtain a Naval Academy's fine education. Be- 
cause of his friendly attitude and easy going personality. Bob will 
undoubtedly become a success.

Don, a product of Dallastown High School, York, Pennsylvania, 
came to the Academy after serving in the Fleet for a year and then 
attending another year at NAPS. He started off his stay at the 
Academy by holding the highest class average in Plebe chemistry 
for the year. Since then he has maintained a high academic 
standing that should prove to be both beneficial to himself and the 
Navy in the future. Next to his girl, Don likes his motorcycle. A 
sports buff from way back, Don played company soccer, basket- 
ball, touch football and softball. Don should become an important 
and valuable member of the naval service, after graduation. 


Following his graduation from high school in Center Line, 
Michigan, Les came to the Naval Academy on a Congressional 
appointment. In the field of academics, Les was interested most in 
the courses offered by the English Department, gaining a minor in 
foreign affairs. Although he found less time to devote to his 
studies as the semesters passed, he still managed to make the 
Supt's List three times and the Dean's List once. Highly interested 
in sports, Les devoted many of his afternoons to winning efforts in 
company soccer, football, and softball. With his good attitude and 
strong drive, Les will make an outstanding officer in the Navy. 


Hailing from New York City, Ron brought with him a bit of 
Broadway when he came to Navy. He gained Brigade wide recogni- 
tion for his major parts in numerous Masquerader productions and 
in the lesser roles as "the mad Monk" and "the man in the 
window." Ron added to his already broad knowledge of the Navy 
when he learned, the hard way, that a kilt is considered "improper 
civilian attire." His many all nighters bought him sure "A's" in his 
French and Bull electives which were usually used to compensate 
for the Skinny and Steam Departments. Whatever course Ron 
settles upon for the future, he is sure to make a valuable contribu- 


Robbo, as his friends call him, comes to us from Lenox, 
Massachusetts. Before coming to the Academy he attended one 
year of Berkshire Community College. In his spare time he in- 
structed skiing, was sextant of his church and also wound the 
town clock. Bob decided that he wanted something better in life 
so he decided to attend the Academy where finally he got to use 
his art talents and mechanical ability in his minor Naval Architec- 
ture. Always ready with a funny line. Bob has begun many 
friendships that have made his years at the Academy enjoyable 


Steve came to the Academy straight from the suburbs of 
Pittsburgh. Taken under the wing of a very conscientious upper- 
classman, he learned the value of professionalism and quickly 
adapted to the military life. Due to his size he found himself in the 
rear of a crew shell during Plebe year. A straight "A" student in 
the Physical Education Department, Steve spent many a long night 
trying to stay even with the demanding courses of the Engineering 
Department. Although the "little feller" never grew in size, his 
never-say-die attitude in everything he did gained him the friend- 
ship and respect of all. His professional attitude toward the Naval 
Service and his ease of winning new friends, will make for easy 
sailing in the Fleet. 


Rick entered the Naval Academy right after graduation from 
high school in Minneapolis and was always ready to deliver an 
extemporaneous speech on the finer points of the Twin Cities. 
"Lootie" as we all know him, served a year in the Naval Reserve 
before getting his appointment. Although he wasn't a fierce com- 
petitor on the athletic fields, "Lots": was an outstanding Brigade 
boxer as well as weightlifter. One of his trademarks was his 
"good" jokes and never ceasing ability to get the gouge before 
anyone else. Rick's true loyalty to his friends will always stay with 
him and the Fleet will get one of the most dedicated officers to 
have graduated from the Academy. 



Newt, a well-travelled Navy Junior, came to USNA directly 
from O'Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. A dependable 
member of company and battalion sports squads throughout his 
four years, he was eventually led by his love of sun, wind and sea 
to the Midshipmen's Sailing Squadron and the schooner. Freedom, 
on which he enjoyed many hours on the Bay. After an early 
encounter with the Academic Board, Newt began personal crusade 
which culminated in his gaining his long sought after stars. His 
academic endeavors, however, rarely failed to put a dent in a busy 
social calendar. Newt's spirit and determination will surely make 
him a welcome member of whichever branch of the service he 


Hailing from Coronado, California, Brian's first experience 
with the sea came at an early age, aboard the Coronado ferry. With 
the profound knowledge obtained from his frequent ferry rides 
and being a Navy Junior the Academy was merely the next logical 
step in his development. Although he never quite recovered from 
his first military haircut, Brian soon became very well adapted to 
the Academy routine and very aware of the many "benefits" 
derived from it. Regardless of the branch of service he chooses 
Brian will be a welcome asset. 


John, a Navy Junior, came to Annapolis from the Norwich 
Free Academy in Norwich, Connecticut. He easily made the transi- 
tion to Naval Academy life through his outstanding natural abili- 
ties and desire. He made a name for himself as a good student and 
even better athlete, appearing on the Supt's List often and excel- 
ling as a defenseman on the Navy lacrosse team. John, being a 
well-rounded individual, was also known for enjoying the finer 
things in life. His outstanding ability to get along with people will 
always stand him in good stead, enabling him to come out on top 
in everything that he attempts. 


Son of a Navy Chief, Dave brought his unequaled wit to USNA 
from nearby Virginia. Despite the nickname of "Zombie", he was 
seldom without a lovely companion on the weekends. As a firm 
believer in osmosis he could usually be found in his pad during 
free periods. On the afternoons when he could escape the swim- 
ming sub squad Dave was a mainstay on the batt squash team in 
the Fall and the best varsity racket stringer at USNA during the 
winter. His attention to detail and administrative ability should 
serve him well in his chosen Navy line. 


Jim entered the Naval Academy after attending one year at 
South Dakota Tech in hometown Rapid City. Deeply seeded in his 
background is a love of the summers spent in the Black Hills of 
South Dakota: particularly those spent at the "Days of '76" which 
provided him with many fine memories. Maybe this is where he 
developed the carefree, lighthearted attitude which followed him 
through the halls at Navy, Jim enjoys contact sports which led him 
to weightlifting, basketball, and Navy's football team. His great 
sense of humor and dedication to the "finer" things in life promise 
him success and a bright future. 


Mike came East to Annapolis from the "City by the Bay" as a 
Navy Junior. Although his heart remained in San Francisco, he 
adapted at once to the rigors of life in Bancroft Hall. Never one to 
worry about academics, Mike maintained a comfortable lead over 
2.0, while he excelled on the varsity baseball diamond as well as in 
company sports. He sharp eye for the finer things in life stood him 
in good stead for many fine times. He never lost sight of his 
primary goal, to become a Naval Officer, and this dedication and 
his natural ability will make Mike an attribute to which ever 
service he selects.

FALL SET: CDR: P. W. Kruse; SUB-CDR: R. I. Lyies, III; 
CPO: K.W. Elderkin. 

The Class of 1969 came to the Twentieth Company from the "old 
Fourteenth." Those two years on seven-four saw innumerable horror 
shows and now legendary happenings. The company's resident so- 
ciologist divided us into three groups: the super-cools on one end, the 
clods on the other, and an amorphous mass in the middle. As 
Youngsters we put on a Christmas show which guaranteed all of us a 
spot in hell, held nightly air-raids (WW II style), and collected a 
managerie of dead animals. 

We moved to the Twentieth Company in time to help our newly 
arrived company officer win the coveted "Rookie of the Year" award 
and acquire a few gray hairs. This year. Twentieth Company has 
distinguished itself above all others. No other company can boast two 
Trident Scholars, two Battalion Commanders, one Ail-American Soc- 
cer Player . . . and an amorphous mass.

Arne came to the Academy, via Presidential appointment, from 
Huntington Beach, California. Prior schooling included attendance 
at Villanova Preparatory School, and Cal-State College at Long 
Beach. His extra-curricular activities included the Log, Italian Club 
and Foreign Relations Club, in addition to being the Lucky Bag 
and Company Representative. He was a member of the Plebe 
gymnastics, batt and varsity fencing teams, and the sailing squad- 
ron. Arne is a man capable of achievement over and above the 
average and expected modicum, always in search of enlargement 
and fulfillment, and in hot pursuit of a Walden Pool and a Coney 


Dick visited the Naval Academy during his senior year in high 
school confirming his desire to be a midshipman. And a lucky 
choice for the Navy it was; Dick was unbeatable in both indoor 
and outdoor track and did so well in soccer that he played his last 
year as Team Captain. Academics never seemed to be a problem 
for Dick as evidenced by his numerous appearances on theSupt's 
List. His chosen minor was foreign affairs, but during the week- 
ends he seemed more active in local affairs for which he was 
always in demand and willing to contribute actively. With this 
kind of dedication and the capabilities Dick has exhibited already 
he will meet with unqualified success wherever he goes. 


With a sad "Good-bye" to the sunny beaches of Miami and a 
pleasure filled semester at the University of Miami, "Brels" headed 
for the halls of Mother B. After a tough year of character building, 
Ed decided to put his gifted intellectual and athletic abilities to 
work thinking up new ways to beat the system and fighting the 
blue pad monster every afternoon. Ed is an active competitor in 
heavyweight football, company soccer and battalion track. He 
even devotes some of his spare time to studying. He plans on 
making Naval Air his career, but whether he flies or not, Ed will 
make a fine addition to the Navy as an officer. 


Larry gave up the sunny skies of Southern California to return 
to the East Coast and the cold weather. Although straight out of 
high school, academics never gave him much trouble but a three 
year battle with the Math Department ended in a draw. The lure 
of the Academy's yawls forced Larry to sacrifice advanced infan- 
try on Worden Field. "Why march when you can ride?" was his 
motto. The pistol range saw Larry during the winter only because 
it was indoors and surprisingly enough, he hit the target most of 
the time. Weekends found Larry in Alexandria or at the Play- 
house, and at term paper time, in his room. His intelligence and 
desire were his strong points and will make him a credit to the 


Lynn, or "Butts" as he has come to be known here at USNA, 
came to the Class of '69 from the southwest U.S. He received his 
appointment from his Congressman in Kansas, but New Mexico, 
Texas and Oklahoma are just as much his home. The mountains — 
camping in the summer, skiing in the winter — are his favorite 
pastimes. When he's here at Navy it's a good bet that you'll find 
him either losing the eternal battle with the pad monster, studying 
his favorite subject "Aero", or out on the Y.P.'s — all the while 
polishing a great sense of humor, and constantly working hard to 
become the fine officer that he surely will be. 


Cliff hails from Madison, Connecticut and came to the Acad- 
emy on a Congressional appointment. The great many friends 
which he has made at the Academy attest to his winning person- 
ality and fine character. He was a firm believer in man's occasional 
need for "wine, women and song." He got through with a maxi- 
mum amount of close calls and the most fun that could be had 
while living in the confines of Mother Bancroft. His running battle 
with the Executive Department was infamous. Cliff was on the 
winning 150 lb. football team as well as the rugby and fieldball 
teams. Bill's success in later life will be largely due to his excellent 
personality and attitude. 



After spending a year at Penn State University, "Duds" tired of 
the gay campus life under tlie NROTC program and decided to try 
his hand at the Academy. Greatly motivated towards a career in 
the Navy, Duds could always be found hitting the books or 
enjoying his favorite pastime, the tube. Having played football in 
high school, he naturally played company football as well as 
Softball. He was also a member of the Antiphonal Choir, and 
though he claimed that he could sing, there were many who did 
not agree. With his determination and positive outlook on life. 
Duds should perform an outstanding job in whatever duties to 
which he may be assigned. 


Ken entered USNA after three years of college and Marine 
Corps training. Older and more experienced than his classmates — 
and with a natural ability to lead, he was quickly looked up to by 
his friends and classmates. Ken was endowed with eviable athletic 
ability, but although he kept himself in excellent physical condi- 
tion, he valued far more the opportunity to develop his mind. 
Always an individualist with convictions of his own, he was 
nevertheless a master at inspiring teamwork, and his loyalty made 
his friendship especially esteemed by those to whom he gave it. 
Ken is blessed with an inquisitive, sharp and imaginative mind and 
is certain to earn the continued respect and admiration of those 
who know him. 


Jack entered the hallowed halls of Bancroft after a historic 
career in Quincy, Massachusetts. An outstanding athlete, he found 
his calling on the football field, where his winning will won him an 
"N" star and a starting berth on the Navy eleven for three years. 
Jack was a welcome addition to any team, as he also played JV 
lacrosse, company basketball and fieldball. Not to be outdone on 
the athletic field, he likewise was not to be outdone on the 
weekends; and where Jack could be found — there was action!! 
Jack's drive and determination to complete any task to his utmost 
will assure him a successful career in any field he encounters. 


Walt came to the Academy after graduating from Xavier High 
School in New York City and spending a year as a weekend 
warrior and four as a subway commando. He carried over his 
background in sports to participate in Plebe and varsity soccer and 
track. After Youngster year "individual workouts" consumed 
most of his afternoons. As for academics, it was 2.0 a go-go right 
on through. Social endeavors were by far Walt's major field of 
interest; "The Wop" and his girls were a living legend. Walt's 
enthusiasm and dedication will be his key to success and will 
render him a credit to the Naval Service. 






Prompted by a strong desire to self-improve himself, Dave 
came here from Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Going out for boxing 
his Plebe year, and weightlifting as an upperclass, people soon 
found that, although there wasn't much of him, when they deal 
with Dave, they deal with dynamite. Possessing a keen sense of 
humor, he keeps us constantly convulsed, but he never fails to 
lend a warm and friendly hand to those in need. Loyal to his 
friends, faithful to his ideals, an inner fire and a steel will are the 
tools of his trade. A small man on the outside, a giant of a man on 
the inside, Dave will go far in the years to come. 


"Joe", as his friends call him, came to Annapolis from La 
Feria, Texas, where he had been valedictorian of his class and an 
Eagle Scout. His optimistic outlook and ready smile won many a 
friend; and to those who knew him best, his friendship was 
highly-valued and his opinion respected. Above all, he exemplified 
to his classmates the sense of honor and devotion to our country 
and the Naval Service to which they aspired. A natural athlete Joe 
enjoyed playing tennis and running cross country and he could be 
relied on to give the extra effort that often makes the difference. 
He is liked and admired by all who know him and is a worthy 
addition to the officer corps of our nation's armed forces. 


Pete found his way to Annapolis after graduation from New 
York's St. Francis Prep. An outstanding swimmer, he has been the 
backbone of many a water polo team and even swam for the New 
York Athletic Club. Pete has also shown exceptional athletic 
ability in a Navy shell and as a member of four company fieldball 
teams. Proficiency in all phases of academics have given Pete a well 
established position on both the Supt's and Dean's Lists. Many of 
his classmates have Pete to thank for solutions to some Math and 
Physics problems which generated looks of bewilderment from 
others. With his varied abilities and dynamic personality, Pete will 
be a credit to the Fleet. 


Sam came to us from Security, Colorado, a mile up and 1 ,500 
miles thataway. Salutatorian of his high school, a "P.K." with a 
wry grin, a memory as long as your arm, and a slight Colorado 
drawl, Sam brings us a flavor of the Old West . After floundering in 
Physics, as in swimming, for a year, Sam switched to Foreign 
Affairs and the ensuing stream of A's that followed from his 
overnight term papers brought him both widespread fame and 
awe. Sam is an outstanding debater and has excelled both in 
varsity fencing and in the YP Squadron. Known for his stability, 
possessing a tempered tenacity, Sam is destined for a rendezvous 
with success. 


A native of Pueblo, Colorado, Dick brought to Navy a pleasing 
personality with which to smooth the bumpy four year road. His 
running battle with the academic department will long be remem- 
bered on both ends of Stribling Walk. "Diko's" extracurricular 
activities included membership on the Ring and Crest Committee 
and the Honor Committee, of which he was Secretary-Recorder. 
He played on the J.V. soccer team, as well as the intramural 
football and rugby teams. Dick leaves behind a somewhat famous 
record in the field of social activities, always ready to contribute 
to a good time for all. With his keen sense of competition, lively 
wit and military bearing, Dick should go far in his chosen 
profession and be a definite asset to the Navy. 


Mac came to the Naval Academy from Anderson, South Caro- 
lina where he as a Naval Reservist. Studies occupied much of his 
time at Navy. He was consistent in appearing on the Dean's List, 
and first class year found him hard at work on a Trident Project. 
An avid reader, Mac possessed a library that any small town would 
be proud of, but the pad was always a competitor for his time. 
Mac's extracurricular interests included the Foreign Relations Club 
and the Academy's chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma of which he was 
President first class year. Due to his intelligence and hard work, 
Mac will surely go far in his chosen profession. 



With a well-entranched New England background, Len was 
always quick to defend his Bostonian culture. Fromthe very start, 
he lived the words of Admiral Kirkpatrick, "You can do anything 
you set your mind to, and don't you ever forget it." In attaining 
the highest academic goals, it can be said that he put less time in 
the pad than any other man ever to go through the Academy. 
Although actively participating in the overload and majors pro- 
grams, he could always find time to help others in academics. His 
ability in academics was finely complemented by a strong com- 
petitive spirit on the athletic field. Len's ability to apply himself 
with his characteristic Yankee vigor will guarantee his success in 
whatever he may endeavor to do in life. 


Tom hails from Hicksville, New York and came to the Acade- 
my after a year at Bullis Prep. Mac's main attribute was his 
football prowess, as he played for the Big Blue for three years. 
While not on the football field, he could be found wading around 
the instruction pool. Tom was in the running for the D.A.R. award 
for excellence in academics and conduct, until second class year 
caught up with him. Well liked by all his all classmates, his warm 
personality and ready smile will be remembered by all. With his 
determination for success, Tom will be an asset to any command. 


The second cold war of the century began, when Ole Murph 
entered USNA. Coming from Ozark, Alabama, an "Army brat", 
widely traveled, steeped with Chinese intrigue and a two year 
veteran of the Marion Military Institute, Denny joined us with a 
zeal for fun, a bag of tricks, a big grin, and an uncanny ability to 
sidestep the ensuing wrath of his natural but most formidable 
adversary, the Executive Department. Den is our company and 
honor representative, is on the BAC and Scuba Club and actively 
participates in varsity rifle and sailing teams. His personal charm 
and unfailing sense of humor serve him well and he is destined to 
make an outstanding naval officer. 


President of his high school student body, receiving a Naval 
Reserve appointment, a hard worker dedicated to Aeronautical 
Engineering, a naval career and a sound set of ethics, "Conk" 
comes to us from DeLand, Florida. Jim travels far and wide in the 
Glee Club, is a member of long standing on the Dean's List and 
still finds time in his busy day to be an active member in the 
Catholic Choir. Although seriously purposed, when mixed with 
water, this soft shelled "Conk" is instant fun — be it at the beach, 
skiing, boating, a golfer's water hazard or even on a cruise. Jim's 
genial personality, quick mind and genuine concern for the indi- 
vidual will carry him far in his naval service.

When Rick packed his seabag, left the peaceful and sunny 
climate of southern Florida, and entered the Naval Academy, he 
wasn't really aware of what was in store for him. Yet with the 
previous Naval Reserve training, he was able to take everything in 
a very relaxed manner during the four years at the Academy. Not 
one to break tradition, he spent his evenings either in the pad or 
(if no new books existed) studying, and spent his weekends 
viewing the only changing features of the neighboring metropolis 
of Annapolis. With the excellent background from the Y.P. Squad- 
ron, Rick should have no trouble in making a last'ng impression 
upon the Fleet. 


Jerry came to the banks of the Severn from Long Island, New 
York, where he captained his high school football team. Finding 
that he was a little too small for big time football, he concentrated 
his athletic efforts on rugby, fieldball and sailing. Jerry managed 
to maintain a 3.0 while obtaining an Engineering major with a 
minimal amount of work, and was one of the few Middies ever to 
pass as a Chief during his Plebe year. His wit and humor were the 
life of any party and Jerry was the center of attraction wherever 
he went. The Navy is gaining an outstanding individual and leader 
when Jerry graduates. 


Tim came to the Naval Academy from Baker, Oregon, hence 
you could always hear Tim arguing with the guys about how great 
it was to come from the "sticks". Tim actively participated in such 
sports as tennis, Softball and fieldball and could also be counted 
on to give an opponent a tough game in the squash courts during 
exam week. Academically, Tim was known for his hard work and 
persenerance and was always willing to help his less gifted class- 
mates. When the weekend rolled around, Tim turned from his 
academics to pursue such high ideals as women and parties. Upon 
graduation, Tim's well rounded personality should add a dedicated 
naval officer to the fleet. 


Born in Augusta, Georgia, Bob is familiar with military life. His 
father is regular Air Force (retired), and this has resulted in Bob 
living in many different parts of the country and Japan as well. It 
was while living in Tokyo that Bob first took up his present sport 
of pole vaulting, first jumping nto a dirt pit with a bamboo pole. 
Bob also played football and swam in high school; his summers 
being spent as a lifeguard watching all the pretty girls. Since 
coming to the Academy Bob has managed to keep his grades near 
the 3.0 mark while participating in track both indoors and out. 


Richard Alden Woodworth, a Connecticut Yankee in 
Tecumseh's Court, is not one to go at anything half-heartedly. 
Whether it's soccer, softball, sailing, singing, sunning or sleeping — 
Woody can hold his own. Foreign cars and "four-N" mornings — 
he swears by the former and at the latter, but nevertheless he finds 
equal time to study "wires" and wire wheels. Woody the connois- 
seur of automobiles and audio equipment is surpassed only by 
Woody the connoisseur of food and wines. A never-ending smile 
and a bubbling personality have won Woody many friends at Navy 
and away. The rewards of hard work and dedication are sure to 
come to him as he embarks upon a career as the fine officer he is 
sure to be.

Returning from such exotic cruise ports as Subic Bay, Naples and 
Norfolk, the "firsties" of 21 set about their business of running the 
company. Once we were in the swing of things life was much easier 
around the "wonderful womb." After a few trial runs there came the 
traditional Army blast in Philly. Then there was that last x-mas at 
home as a mid and the "almost last" exams. Somehow everybody 
squeaked by and we charged off into the dark ages. The dismal winter 
saw the b-ball team almost make it and the lightweights definitely, 
with an 0-7 mark. Sen/ice selection was a sad affair, as we lost five to 
the green. Making it "half-way" as often as possible, we amazed our 
CO. by not acquiring any black N's. Sorry coach, we're just too 
sneaky for you. Spring, June Week, graduation, and then off to the 
wars. It's been a good year.

A son of one of Merrill's Marauders, Jim canne to Navy after a 
brief stint in the submarine reserve. Although he gripes with the 
best of us, the victory at sea movies in the Second Class wardroom 
surface that go Navy look all over his exuberant face, "That's the 
Navy." An ardent sports enthusiast, his highs and lows are in 
direct proportion to Navy's, and his own successes on the athletic 
field. Jim's carefree, lively personality has won him many friends 
throughout the Brigade, and his ready laugh make his company 
the kind one never tires of. The personal magnetism and well- 
deserved self respect will make Jim an inspiring young naval 


Mike came to USNA from Arlington, Ohio, after spending two 
years at Ohio Northern University. Known to his classmates as the 
"old Goat" because of his greying hair, Mike's sense of humor and 
easy going disposition helped him adjust to the military. Although 
not an academic slash Mike always managed to come out on top 
with his main interest being in history. Athletically, Mike's favor- 
ite sports were fieldball and lacrosse. We are sure he will do well in 
whatever branch he chooses. 


Bill came to the Academy via the Marine Corps and NAPS. 
From the first day of the well remembered Plebe Summer, "Willy- 
B" demonstrated his great natural leadership ability. Always a 
staunch competitor. Bill excelled in baseball, basketball and soccer 
for the company teams. Although Bill is a hardworking individual, 
he was never one to pass up a good time. Every company party 
could count on his presence to liven things up. Bill's fine attitude 
and determination to win will always stand him in good stead 
regardless of his service choice. 


Dave's distinctive personality and unique sense of humor have 
won him many friends with all those he has come in contact with. 
On the playing field, whether in soccer, football, tennis or Softball, 
"Bogo" is always a valuable member of the team because of his 
stiff competitive nature and "never say die" attitude. As a Russian 
student, his gifted talents in this field made the foreign language 
program an easy mark. With prior service in the Naval Reserve, the 
Academy life was not hard for Dave to adjust to, and his 
professional attitude has made him invaluable in the company. 
Dave will definitely enliven any wardroom which he takes his 
place in. 


"Big Bill" came to the Academy from upstate New York 
equipped with the intellect that would earn him spots on both 
the Superintendent's List and Dean's List. But Bill's academic 
ability must take second place to his wit and great sense of humor. 
Always eager to do anything different. Bill could often be found 
in the midst of the hilarity of those frequent "bag-it" nights in 
Mother B. Whether engaged in a serious discussion of history, or 
livening up life at Navy with his various antics, "Brams" was 
always on top of the situation. A well respected and popular 
member of our class. Bill's ability to do a job well coupled with his 
sense of humor should place him at the top of the ladder in the 


Hailing from Vincennes, Indiana via a successful tour at Castle 
Military Academy, Billy came to the Academy full of vigor and 
enthusiasm, but was soon shocked into reality by the rigors of 
Plebe year and the "Math-Barns." However, he found his place in 
the Foreign Affairs Department, where he always excelled. But 
not being confined to the newspapers, "Brooksie" was often 
found leading the intramural teams on the field, and everyone 
elsewhere. Billy is a great person to know, an individual who 
commands a great deal of respect, and will be an outstanding 



Having graduated with honors from Cedarburg High School, in 
Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Bob turned down a scholarship to Notre 
Dame to come to Navy at the tender age of 17. Quiet and shy 
until you get to know him, he made himself known around the 
yard by earning a starting berth on the national championship 
150 # football team second class year. Out of season. Bob was a 
stalwart on the company Softball and basketball teams and helped 
to win the Brigades in Softball Plebe year. Never a serious con- 
tender for the Supt's List, he displayed determination in the 
academic field as in every thing he tried. Quiet, serious, and 
persevering. Bob will make a fine officer just as he has made a fine 


Coming from a small Lake Michigan community Pete promptly 
threw himself into the sailing program and established himself as 
one of the Academy's finest. An Oceanography Minor, he also 
delved into the secrets of the deep in the classroom. Summers 
spent afloat gave him many entertaining tales. Never one to turn 
down a bull session, in the wee hours you could find him relating 
countless experiences, real and otherwise. Navy air calls him 
strongly but wherever he goes his likeable personality will fit him 
into any wardroom. 


Terry came to Navy with no prior education, but Plebe year 
academics soon made him wish he had. He had this thing about 
Spanish which just would not quit until he crawled up Herndon 
June Week. With the advent of Youngster Year and Engineering 
courses, things changed a little and he began wearing stars and 
enjoying those Supt's List privileges for the rest of his affair with 
USNA. Terry was always busy athletically —varsity crosscountry 
and track and one year of sailing. He spent a lot of time at the 
library, but weekends found him driving all over the East Coast in 
little cars and generally enjoying life. After graduation he hopes to 
combine traveling and post-graduate schooling with his career. 


Being an Army brat and world traveler, Russ finally saw the 
light and accepted the President's invitation to visit Annapolis. 
Once here he applied himself diligently and convinced the Math 
Department he should be on the Dean's as well as the Supt's Lists. 
During the fall and spring, good weather and fair winds lured Russ 
to the Chesapeake for sailing, while the winter months found him 
in the handball courts supporting his local battalion team. Early 
mornings he often braved the icy waters and perils of the Natatori- 
um to pursue his interests as well as utilize his leadership, Russ will 
make a fine Naval officer. 


Though slight of stature Steve's amiable personality has helped 
him to become one of the more popular individuals in the com- 
pany and the Brigade. As a Weapons major and perennial Brigade 
boxer Steve finds little free time for himself. Hailing from 
Washington, D. C. Steve is just a "hop, skip and a jump" from 
friends and family. When free time does avail itself "Fish" can be 
relied upon to make the most of it. Along with his work hard — 
play hard attitude, Steve will undoubtedly attain and far surpass 
any goals he sets for himself. 


Rick began his career as a ROTC, but someone recognized 
Rick's aspirations for success. Rick left fraternity memories at 
UCLA and reported for the real Navy. A year of college and his 
military experience provided Rick with initial momentum to sur- 
mount shocking rigors of year One. Continuous dragging at the 
expense of intellectual pursuits carried Rick through three more 
years. Rick contributed to WRNV, slow-pitch and volleyball, and 
survived swimming with natural flotational advantages. Rick's 
particular attention to details of administration and his tenacious 
personality will be prime factors toward assured success in the 



A native of one of the nation's most notable, communities, 
iVIike had been around quite a bit before he came to See the 
World. A former seminarian, brewmaster, railroader, whitehat and 
NAPSter, the Old Man Near the Sea has told many, many tales to 
most of his 4,000 man captive audience. Always a hard driver, a 
job well done to others marks the half-way point for Mike, though 
his thoroughness and efficiency are not obvious to the uninitiated. 
His robust and less than sonorous voice is familiar to residents and 
regular visitors to Navy alike, immortalized by his ascensions from 
the messhall as he would intone such pops as "Gaudeamus Igitur." 
Mike's dynamic and aggressive character make him a natural lead- 
er. He is, at once, an experience and privilege to know. 


Mike traveled from God's country to the shores of the Severn 
in search of challenge, found it, and quickly disposed of it in his 
tour years at USNA. No task, academic or athletic, proved too 
great for Mike, as he maintained a good QPR with relatively little 
effort and found time in his busy days for an everyday dip in the 
pool. A quick and easy smile earmarked Mike's relationships with 
his classmates and he could always be counted on to do his part 
when there was a job to be done. There is no doubt from anyone 
who has known Mike that this steady performance and dedication 
to the Navy will make him an outstanding young naval officer in 
the years to come. 


A Navy family sent Tom from Virginia to USNA after com- 
piling an outstanding record at Granby High School in Norfolk. 
Milo, a name he would just as soon forget, could always be found 
excelling on the tennis courts or the "featherweight" football 
gridiron. An ardent mathematician, Tom was happiest when he 
could spend his time "bad-mouthing" his friends of the EH & G 
Department who couldn't understand his love for numbers. Never 
one to turn his back on a party, Tom managed to liven things up 
with his knowledge of Math — "two parts of this -^ three parts of 
that equals?" Tom's high professional motivation and ability to 
tackle any task will serve him well in his Naval career. 


Ron came to the Academy from Lenox Prep School in Mass- 
achusetts. Electing to make his way through USNA on the "Five 
Year Plan, " Ron bounced back to find himself on both the Supt's 
List and the Dean's List. An excellent athlete, Ron was a soccer 
standout until he decided to devote his time to the study of the 
mysteries of the Math Department. Always finding time for the 
pad, Ron takes life as easy as possible. With his love for the 
unusual, some of Ron's adventures could qualify for "Believe It or 
Not." His easy-going and fun-loving personality coupled with his 
ability to get a job done well will enable Ron to become a fine 
Naval officer. 




Rich came to Navy a California son of the beaches to find life a 
little different from sun and sand. His first two years he managed 
to earn stars each semester, easing the strain on his QPR during 
first class year. He played a major role in developing the Photo 
Club into a high active organization. Other interests include skiing, 
cars, leave and good companionship — preferably feminine. After 
three hard years "hrmii" saw first class year a time to enjoy, with 
a little caution. 


Not a person to believe in the "ours is not to reason why" type 
of mentality. Jack's inquisitive intellect was somewhat rare at the 
Naval Academy. After spending a year at Purdue, he came to Navy 
with a mature mind and found Naval Academy life not much of a 
challenge. Because of this and because of his desire to do more 
than the bare minimum. Jack carried an unusually heavy academic 
load. Relaxation, however, was a word not unknown to him; in his 
rare moments of free time he could be found reading Kierkegaard, 
listening to classical guitar, or holding his own on the squash 
courts. With his unfailing ambition and probing mind, there should 
be no bounds to Jack's achievements. 


Dave arrived in Annapolis fresh from a successful high school 
career in North Carolina where he was a standout as a football 
player and student leader. Overcoming his initial awe of the 
Academy, Dave charged into life in Bancroft Hall with endless 
energy and enthusiasm. Whether bending his roomie's ears with his 
infamous trumpet playing or grinding out yards as a fullback on 
the 150 lb. football team, "The Twink" never did anything half- 
hearted. In the past year Dave has become quite a party man and 
his innocent humor has livened up many Saturday nights. With his 
ability to tackle any job successfully, Dave will become an out- 
standing Naval officer. 


Tom reported to Canoe U. from Perkasie, Pennsylvania, only 
to find out that his charcoal curls and his picnic basket would not 
be tolerated. His intense pursuit of an Aero major at Navy left 
little time for Tom to practice his soccer or guitar during the 
week; but always time on the weekends for a party with the fellas 
or an occasional trip home. His goodnatured personality coupled 
with common sense, lack of pettiness and a very mature and 
professional outlook to the future will inevitably lead Tom to a 
rewarding life in the Navy. 


After a taste of military life at Augusta Military Academy, 
Virginia, where he graduated with honors, Tom came to the 
Academy full of enthusiasm and confidence. Hailing presently 
from Martinsville, Virginia, but having lived all over the South, 
Tom soon acquired the nickname "HAYSEED" from his class- 
mates. A stalwart participant in intramurals, Tom's never-say-die 
attitude had to be carried over into his academic work as well. 
Chief engineer of various nocturnal operations. Hayseed still has 
the Navy Department wondering how the original Tecumseh got 
out of Luce Hall and where the bowling ball that rolled through 
watch squad formation came from. Being well informed profes- 
sionally, Tom's enthusiasm and personality will place him high 
among his fellow officers. 



Big Hoss came to USNA from a small town on the Texas 
Plains. Although he was never inclined towards the Navy, he 
picked up the routine very quickly. Perhaps one reason for this 
was the year he spent at New Mexico Military Institute before 
entering the Academy life. At the Academy, he spent three years 
on the football scrub team. But one could count on Hoss to 
chime in with a beautiful tune after practice. He has always been 
an easy going fellow who looked for ways to help his classmates. I 
know that as time goes on Ross will be ready for the Navy. 


Hailing from Redlands, California, Jim arrived at Mother "B" 
on that memorable Wednesday morning with hopes of continuing 
a fine academic and athletic record in high school. Although he 
was never acclaimed a company slash he soon earned recognition 
as an Aerospace Engineering expert, even if his paper airplanes did 
frequently take nosedives. A great believer in competition sports, 
his continuing perseverance on the playing field finally earned him 
a position on the 150 lb. football team. Oftentimes Jim could be 
found in the pad, boosting the Catholic Choir or taking those 
illegal Wednesday night showers to lose weight. His personality 
and willingness to meet new faces will be a great asset to Jim's 
career in the Navy. 


Jim came to USNA from Boston Latin School and the Naval 
Reserve. Well prepared academically, he consistently was a mem- 
ber of the Superintendent's List and often wore stars. Born and 
raised next to the sea, he soon grew to love it and decided to make 
it his career. His familiarity with the water made him a member of 
the Plebe swimming team and the varsity Shields team. To prove 
his talents weren't limited to the sea, he won his jump wings as a 
Youngster. Jim's sense of humor and outgoing personality, as well 
as his academic and professional competence, should provide Navy 
Line with a fine officer and aid him in a successful career. 


John Masefield responded to the lure of the sea with the 
famous lines, "I must go down to the sea again . . ." Bill Rogalski, 
born and raised within sight and sound of Long Island Sound, 
responded to that same lure by taking the oath of a midshipman. 
Turning down offers from several of the finest schools in the 
country, Bill, instead, came to Navy — a decision which the Navy 
will certainly not regret. The naval profession sorely needs men 
like Bill, a man with a curious mind and a truly refreshing 
personality who abhors the "ours is not to reason why" mentality 
so prevalent in, yet so detrimental to the naval service. 


As a Navy junior, Dave had no problem adjusting to the 
Annapolis way. Hailing from the bluegrass of Kentucky, he spent 
his last year of high school in D. C. where he was a standout 
athlete, scholar and musician. At the Academy he was no differ- 
ent. "Rosebuds" led the batt football team for two years and his 
prowess as a scholar was well known around the "Math barns." 
Being a person of a many talents, he also played in and directed 
the NA-10 and Sundays found him lending his voice to the Chapel 
Choir. Dave is an enthusiastic, hardworking individual, who has a 
great deal to offer the Navy and his shipmates. 


The butt of the company's Polish jokes, John came to USNA 
from St. Theresa High School in Detroit, prepared to do his best, 
come hell or high water. He soon discovered that the hell wasn't so 
bad, but the high water nearly finished him, as evidenced by his 
annual appearance on the swimming sub squad. Between his bat- 
tles with the Engineering and Navy Departments, "Zeke" found 
haven in the Bull Department, release on the athletic field and 
escape on the weekends. With the exception of dragging "Zeke" 
enjoyed nothing more than a hard game of lightweight football, 
the rougher the better. His fighting spirit should ensure him a 
successful career in the Navy.

From one June day to another but the four years between them 
saw the 36 plebes of "sweet sixteen" conquer the vagaries of Naval 
Academy life. During Plebe year we survived the dynamic duo of 
Murph? DT's as Youngsters we adopted a new mode of wearing 
apparel with one motto "Gimme some slack". The Mod-Mid crew, late 
of company twenty-two continued in the forefront of military fashion 
when the Hungry Hounds were created on the slow pitch fields of 
Hospital Point. Those red and gray outfits were a sight to behold. 
When the clan reassembled from firstie cruise to enjoy the fruits of 
first class year they were ready. Goldie's Guys cruised through the 
year in front of the tube with nary a bruise. That other June day 
finally came to see the double deuce graduate TWENTY-TWO EN- 
SIGNS and one lone 2nd LT.

Entering Canoe U. from Coronado High School Stan survived 
four long years of "California Dreaming'" at Navy, yet nostal- 
gically looks back on his first winter on the Severn. Although he 
pursued academics with much vigor, Stan had his battles (and 
don't we all) with that hallowed department, but always managed 
to come out on the winning side. His victories carried over to 
Plebe crew, and then as he traded his oars for a rugby ball, his 
talents and stamina proved vital in the scrum and line-outs. A 
proud leader and firm organizer, Stan's confidence, hustle and 
drive will continue to serve himself and the Navy well. 


George was living proof that good things come in small pack- 
ages. He was at the back of every formation, but he was always 
right up front when there was work to be done. George was 
probably one of the hardest working members of the class, com- 
piling an outstanding academic record, and yet well rounded 
enough to excel in athletics as a Brigade boxer, as well as the 
professional aspects of life at Navy. But George was never too 
busy to go out of his way to help a friend, not to mention the 
numerous fourth classmen whom he guided through the perils of 
Plebe year. His generous and hard-working attitude will make him 
a welcome addition to the fleet. 


Raised on the beach at Coronado, California John got quite a 
shock when he first encountered the not-so-beautiful climate of 
Annapolis. A year with Alpha Tau Omega at San Diego State had 
given him a sense of freedom that USNA could never quite 
control. Never one to let the books get the best of him, John liked 
to spend his time planning the coming weekend. Whether on the 
golf course with the varsity team or scratching the eight ball, he 
could always be counted upon to come up with an appropriate 
witticism. John is a man who will always be remembered for his 
happy-go-lucky personality and his readiness to help a classmate. 


Tom, being a Navy junior, has referred to a variety of places as 
home, but he came to us from McLean, Virginia. He quickly 
established his prowess on the gridiron, becoming a bulwark of the 
Big Blue's forward wall. Talented in many fields, Tom was active 
in class politics and in between visits to the weight room and 
lacrosse workouts he managed to pick up an exacting Aerospace 
major. The strong silent type, "Burb's" shy, quiet manner coupled 
with his subtle self-confidence will be as much an inspiration to his 
future commands as it has to his classmates. 


Pat came from Hampton, New Jersey ten days after graduating 
from North Hunterden Regional High School. Enjoying sports, 
"Trick" was found playing company soccer, basketball and soft- 
ball. The "Hungry Hounds" softball team would not have been the 
same without his ability and quick wit. Working toward his Naval 
Architecture major Pat was on the Supt's and Dean's Lists nearly 
every semester. Being on the Plebe Detail, he was able to further 
develop his already high standards of leadership through actual 
experience. His high standards of conduct and self-discipline, his 
desire for a job well done and his superior ability will make Pat 
one of the Navy's finest officers. 


Late in June 1965 there appeared, fresh from the hallowed 
halls of North Habersham High, deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains 
of Georgia, one Jack Fulbright. Within 30 seconds "The Senator" 
began talking and he hasn't stopped since. His famous Southern 
drawl has been the life of many a party and bull session. While at 
USNA Jack sang in the choir and played company heavyweight 
football. In the fall and spring. Jack's natural love of marching 
drove him to be varsity tennis manager, thereby avoiding Worden 
Field. Often the Hall rang with his "Gimme a little slack!" A keen 
fusser, but a true friend, the Fleet will gain an outstanding officer 
In Jack Fulbright. 




Joe came to USNA in his father's footsteps. Like his father Joe 
was born in Millville, New Jersey but he graduated from Mary 
Immaculate High School in Key West, Florida. Well-known for his 
quick wit and ready smile, Joe is a constant source of entertain- 
ment to his many friends. He has participated actively in company 
sports where his competitive spirit and will to win served as a 
motivating force for his teammates. We all feel confident that his 
winning smile, magnetic personality, and consideration for others 
will earn him many more friends in the future, where he will 
surely find a wealth of success and happiness. 


Although a true Southern Virginian from Petersburg, Benny 
found Annapolis to be close enough to the Chesapeake to be 
suitable. After a year at VMI with the class of 68, Benny decided 
that Army life was not his ticket and escaped, finding refuge at the 
"Country Club on the Bay." Never one to let the books get him 
down, he turned his attention to more worthwhile things. After 
spending two years with the baseball team, he formed the now 
famous "Bitter-Ends" band, for which he played lead guitar. 
Benny will always be remembered for his colorful personality, one 
which will make friends for him wherever he may be. 


After graduating from high school in Puerto Rico, Mike came 
to "Historic old Annapolis" to be promoted (?) from his Navy 
Junior status. Like most Plebes he didn't understand why sailors 
marched, but managed to make his way back to the water with 
Plebe crew. Pursuing interests in language and aviation, Mike 
majored in Spanish and minored in Aerospace, while keeping on 
the Superintendent's List. First Class cruise found Mike with the 
Spanish Navy as he was one of the fortunate few who participated 
in the Foreign Exchange Program. With his varied background, he 
is sure to prove a valuable asset to the Navy. 


Nile graduated from Oilman High School, Oilman, Illinois in 
1965 and during his senior year was also a member of the Naval 
Air Reserves. A month after graduation the boy "from down on 
the farm" reported to the Naval Academy and during the next 
four years, not only broadened his naval training and his sports 
horizons, but also his academic prowess. He was a member of the 
Scuba Club and the Public Relations Club, spending many Satur- 
day afternoons during the fall in the pressbox at Navy football 
games as a statistician to avoid march-ons. Upon graduation Nile 
will enter the fleet and become a very fine and capable officer. 


Joe graduated from Collingdale High School, Pennsylvania in 
1964 and attended Pennsylvania Military College for one year 
before reporting to USNA, along with two years Naval Reserve. 
During his four years on the Severn, Joe was active in Plebe 
lightweight crew, PRC, Scuba Club and company football and 
Softball. When not battling the Weapons Department, he could 
usually be found working out with his weights or on the Blue 
Trampoline. Although he is generally a quiet guy, "Mac" could 
always be counted upon to voice his opinions on any and all issues 
that would arise. When Joe joins the fleet in June of '69, the Navy 
will gain a leader and a fine officer. 


Mike came to the Academy from the booming, farming metro- 
polis of Currie, Minnesota. Managing to somehow pluck the an- 
swers to all P-words from the air, he compiled an impressive 
academic record and also minored in Applied Science and Oceano- 
graphy. Mike was all academics and also won Ail-American status 
and collected a few tons of medals and trophies for his perfor- 
mance on the pistol team. Not stopping at this, he ventured forth 
as a relief pitcher for the "Hungry Hounds", supplying a needed 
arm to the team. Known for his easy going nature and a constant 
equanimity of spirit, he has found many lasting friends at the 



Jack, known to his classmates as "E", hails from the bustling 
metropolis of Circleville, Ohio. When he came to the Academy, 
the chief question in everyone's mind was "Could this simple 
country boy make it in the big time?" Time has proven the answer 
to be yes. Although he does not go in for the technical fields, he 
has received top grades in his class of Management minor. He was 
elected a class officer by his classmates, he has held a high position 
in the striper organization and has put out a great effort (as his 
often toothless state attests) on the intramural fields of fieldball 
and Softball. In spite of all this he has maintained a sort of rustic 
charm which will always bring him friends and success in the 


Keith, better known as "Nard" (among other things), came to 
the Academy from Williamsville High School up New York way. It 
did not take long until he was established as the company "brain- 
trust" and probably spent more hours doing other people's home- 
work than he did doing his own. Between phone calls to Baltimore 
and an unparalled propensity to find his name on watch bills, he 
still managed to fit in a chemistry major. That same enthusiasm he 
has exhibited on the intramural soccer fields coupled with his keen 
analytical mind will help Keith become a success in any field he 
finally chooses to enter. 


Mac came to USNA from sunny Orlando, Florida. Although his 
family moved to Tulsa during his second class year he remained 
closely attached to the Orlando area and its inhabitants and he was 
frequently known to make the long trip south on a long weekend. 
Mac's year at NAPS proved to be a fine preparation for the rigors 
of Plebe year as he sailed through with little or no trouble, and 
that trademark has typified him during his whole stay, to always 
get the job done without overworking himself. He made his 
presence felt in company sports, starting and starring for the 
volleyball team, the lightweight football team and the "Hungry 
Hounds." His warm, friendly nature and desire to excel will make 
him an outstanding officer in his chosen field of Navy line. 


John, better known to his friends as "The Lion", is a native of 
Marblehead, Massachusetts. A man of many talents, he spent many 
long hours behind the green fence with the varsity football team 
and on the company basketball courts. Never one to get too much 
of a good thing, the lion could usually be found spending his spare 
time in the rack, one reason why he never could quite get his stars 
for the Dean's List. His sense of humor and talent for making long 
lasting friendships should put him in good stead for a fine career In 
the Navy. 


Known to everyone as O.B., John is not unlike the leprechaun 
full of Irish wit and an occasional Irish temper to match. O. B. 
hails from "High Above Cayuga's Waters" in Ithaca, New York. 
While at USNA, John made his mark in all fields of endeavor. 
Carrying a heavy academic schedule asan Economic major, he was 
still able to actively participate in class affairs serving in the 
capacity of class treasurer for three terms. Athletically, John had a 
real "racquet" going for him in varsity tennis as he practically 
lived and breathed year-round. He consistently made the Supt's 
List with a sub-sub 3.0. As to the future, his jocular grin will 
always serve him well and guarantee him success in his career. 



Robin came to the Academy after attending Duke University 
for two years. "Rocl<ing Robin", one of Navy's most popular disc 
jockeys on WRNV, Robin also took an active part in the Foreign 
Relations Club, Glee Club, Chapel Choir, French Club, Portuguese 
Club and the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference. In 
addition, participating in the intramural program and also on the 
varsity fencing team. Robin thoroughly enjoyed the academic 
program at Navy and even took courses on his own for which he 
received no credit. His willingness to do more than is required will 
ensure his success in his chosen field. 


Brian arrived at the Academy from NAPS in Bainbridge with 
almost three years of good solid experience as an enlisted man in 
the Navy. He tackled the Naval Academy program with the zeal of 
a "lifer." But that wasn't the beginning or end of his well filled life 
here by any means. At the start of Youngster year he decided to 
take on the challenge of a major in Foreign Affairs. To put his 
newly acquired knowledge into action, he was an active partici- 
pant in the Foreign Relations Club and in NAFAC. His outgoing 
personality manifested itself in his work with the Public Relations 
Committee. Brian's well-rounded schedule of activities and 
achievements insures his valuable contribution to the Navy and 
success in his chosen field. 


Ben came to us straight from the "Country Club Set" of Fort 
Worth, Texas. Graduating with honors from Paschal High, he came 
directly to Navy to find East Coast living somewhat different. 
While here he contributed his athletic ability to golf, batt football 
and company basketball. If Ben wasn't trying to find room for his 
civvies, he was always ready for a bull session, shooting some pool, 
or arranging weekend activities for his many friends. Ben's pleas- 
ant smile and easy-going nature, accompanied by his leaderboip 
qualities and the traits of an accomplished Southern gentleman are 
testimony enough to his future success. 


Jim's confidence and enthusiasm proved to be a winning com- 
bination for him at the Academy. In all his undertakings, Jim 
always managed to rate a "good show" from all who observed 
him. Displaying great interest and pride in being in the Navy, he 
vigorously pursued professional undertakings and when his final 
midshipman cruise approached, Jim was one of the first to volun- 
teer for combat cruise in Viet-Nam. During the years at Navy, his 
artistic and organizational abilities proved invaluable. His ability to 
coordinate and organize, combined with his unassuming manner 
always totaled up to a thoroughly well done job. A strong man, 
who courageously stood by all his opinions, he did what he 
believed in. 



"T-Z" was Fort Lee, New Jersey's USNA rep and has proved 
himself an outstanding leader in more ways than one. Academ- 
ically, George was consistently on the Superintendent's and Dean's 
Lists as he pursued his Mathematics major. Professionally, he was 
on the Plebe Detail second class summer and a striper first class 
year. George carried his prowess to the athletic field where his size 
and agility served him so well — possibly a trait from a Spartan 
ancestor. There was a light fun side to "T-Z's" character, too. A 
great fan of the "fair sex", George loved a good time, fast cars and 
a swinging weekend. The fleet should look for great things from 
George's many talents and accomplishments and will undoubtedly 
find them. 


Dick came to the Academy straight from Ravenna, Ohio where 
he was born. Although he had little trouble adjusting to Academy 
life, he did have one brief encounter with the Academic Board 
when his love of cards, T.V. and the green felt of the pool tables 
"slowed" his academic efforts. He quickly realized the gravity of 
the situation and pulled himself above water. Perhaps Dick's 
greatest asset is his good sense of humor, which he frequently had 
to call upon, because of his many nicknames. These were all in 
good fun though, and his good nature has earned him many 
friends. These attributes combined with his sincerity and his 
concern for others, will make him an outstanding leader.

After spending three relatively uneventful years here, we sure made 
up for it this year. Two weeks after returning from summer leave, 
some of the guys had a party. 2808 manmusters later we were out 
again, each of 120 demerits the wiser. After that we began the year 
long battle with a tiger — a dying relic of a bygone era. But things 
weren't as bad as they seemed. We were fortunate enough to have a 
company officer who was a reasonable man, to whom we could take 
any problem (if we could get into his office between 2/c). Captain 
Sims let us run the show and backed us up 120%. Gifted with the 
ability to discover "leadership-in-the-rough", and never one to raise 
his voice in anger, he guided us through 1/c year with his fine personal 
example and perfect military terminology. We'll never forget you 
Captain. You can bet on that.

"Alf", hailing from sunny Tannpa, Florida, had no trouble 
adjusting to life at Navy — except for the Northern winters. For 
him, snow was an interesting phenomena, but like the rest of us, 
he quickly tired of it. Paul played both Plebe and 150 #football 
until a wrist injury brought an untimely end to his football (and 
marching) career at Navy. But the Lord works in strange ways, and 
he continued to excel in sports when a squash racquet somehow 
sprouted from his cast. Alf had no trouble with academics but a 
conspiracy by the P. T. Department constantly kept him off the 
Supt's List. Paul's fine attitude towards the Naval Service will help 
him in the Fleet. 


Doug came to the land of pleasant living from New Castle, 
Pennsylvania. Possessing basically a small town background, he 
had a little difficulty in adjusting to our modern, complex Navy. 
In fact, Doug developed such a strong feeling for pro-training that 
he developed an acute case of appendicitis during 3/c Summer to 
miss a few days of cruise. The Academic Department has certainly 
felt the effects of Doug's many extracurricular activities — in fact, 
he has received several personally signed letters of condemnation 
from the Admiral. The afternoons could usually find Doug playing 
sailor with the Navy's bathtub fleet, dreaming of civilian line, or in 
the grip of the pad monster imprisoned at slope zero. 


Frank came to the Academy from a Navy background and 
proceeded to do some amazing things. He wrote a computer 
program that would do his grease for him. One day while experi- 
menting with weapons from the 7th Wing he was observed by the 
0.0. D. who insured that Frank was amply rewarded for his 
"homework." Frank could always be depended upon to help out 
when the homework seemed like "magic" and more often than 
not he proved that the magic was actually the intuitively obvious 
after all. A quick wit and personal charm will win this man many 
friends and aid his future . . . whatever and wherever it may be. 


John came to scenic historic Annapolis after living in Germany, 
Japan, Virginia and just about anyplace else you can think of. As a 
result, John became the company connoisseur concerning the finer 
things in life such as Ferraris, Masserattis and Seagram's crown 
royal. John never had much trouble with academics. While putting 
in his two hours of study for every hour of class, he managed to 
keep his grades bubbling under the Supt's list. John excelled in 
sports on the company level, adding much spirit to the company 
volleyball, softball, and touch football teams. John could always 
be recognized a mile away because of his regulation "Recon" 


Kevin Connors, a hearty draft of Irish brew, while not always 
considered officer timber, quickly removed all doubt when he 
threw his hat into the ring of dynamic devil-doers. A Harvard 
Intellect, biting wit and bevy of cogent-minded associates brought 
to the Naval Academy new frontiers of human derring-do. A close 
association with executive circles and local authorities enabled this 
pioneer of thought and deed to wrest from the ivy-clad tradi- 
tionalists unequaled heights of personal discipline. Often a dark 
horse in the academic campaign, he time and time again left 
professor and peer alike breathless in amazement at his wizardry 
in the world of arts and letters. 


"Deeter" came to us from sunny California where he attended 
San Diego State College. While here, he tried his hand at almost 
every intramural sport. However, he finally chose soccer and with 
his skill and ability, helped the team to finish well in the winning 
column; even so we will always remember his winning touchdown. 
Among his dislikes are the Maryland weather and playing cribbage 
with his roommate. After a poor academic Plebe year, he really 
bore down and hit the books and was well known for having more 
weekends than the firsties. 



John came to Navy from Cleveland, Ohio which really isn't 
that great a feat, and is only worth mentioning because there was a 
president named Cleveland. After spending a year at Marquette 
University in the NROTC, he saw the light (?) and switched to 
USNA. Dons was no stranger to the Supt's List but, then, his never 
was much more than a passing acquaintance. His sense of humor 
and his ability to see the brighter side of a bad situation have made 
four years pass a lot faster for all of us. John will certainly make a 
valuable addition to the Naval Service. 


Coming from the Pennsylvania Pretzel country, Dave finally 
made it to USNA via Millersville State College and NAPS. The 
upperclass were quick to recognize Dave's potential, but the Aca- 
demic Departments were a bit more skeptical and Plebe year 
signalled the beginning of a 4 year running battle. Grampa Dave 
always managed to stay on the safe side of 2.0, though, and he 
found time to sing with the Chapel Choir and tour with the Glee 
Club. His fall weekends were usually spent "practicing with the 
guns" as a member of the Cannoneers. A confirmed Navy Line 
man, Dave will make a fine contribution to that exclusive group of 
wooden men and iron ships. 


Goody came to the Severn from Wayzata, Minnesota after a 
year of the good life at the University of Minnesota. Reducing to 
the rigors of Plebe year, Gary had no trouble with academics and 
found himself on the Supt's List more than once. Perhaps he is 
best knwon as a former member of the death valley ski team but 
more recently as a permanent fixture on the radiator squad. His 
first love is photography and it rightfully helped to earn him the 
position of Editor-in-Chief of this LUCKY BAG, which kept him 
more than busy for two years. His ability to do the job well and 
get along with and be liked by everyone will ensure success in all 
of his future endeavors. 


Guy came to the Academy directly from high school and 
immediately began the process of educating himself as a future 
Naval Officer. Undaunted by setbacks during Plebe year, he 
applied himself all the harder and carried his QPR over the magic 
3.00 for the rest of his stay. His enthusiasm could be felt far from 
the classroom as well, on fields at Hospital Point and Farragut 
where he consistently turned out to support company athletics. 
Always one to come up with help for any or all who needed it, 
Guy will never be forgotten for his good nature and devotion to

Jenks opted for Canoe U. straight from high school fighting off 
offers from the other Academies and many universities. Quicl<ly 
establishing a reputation as the best crammer in Mother B, he 
managed to maintain himself on Supt's List by studying only on 
odd-numbered alternate Tuesday, leaving his remaining time to con- 
centrate on more important things, such as sleep, company sports 
and girls. A believer in leadership by example, Wondy was always 
distinguished by his healthy appearance and his expertly kept hair. 
With his keen mind, professional motivation and cheerful help- 
fulness, Jerry will be a resounding success in whatever field he 
chooses to follow. 


An Eskimo by association, liberal by persuasion and hedonist 
by inclination, this rock glacier of a man captured our feelings 
with the chill and climax of his actions. Frank was an adventurous, 
dynamic individualist, who never let his energy be snapped by the 
dullards who trailed in his wake of accomplishment. A once 
introspective dream merchant, he awakened to loosen our minds 
with thought and free our senses to the heady aroma of life. 
Tongues wagged and the corks of life were popped as his classy 
style tempered our dull lives with a gusto for which we are all 
better men. 


The "Boot" came to the Academy from England, France, 
Puerto Rico, Pensacola and Annapolis among other places. Known 
for pulling it out on finals and excelling on the intramural athletic 
field during the week, he disappeared on weekends to a certain 
house in Eastport to partake in the finer things of life. The 
evenings would find him studying the cribbage board and sports 
page where he avidly followed those perennial losing teams, the 
Redskins and Senators. Ed's great desire and ability will surely 
make him a fine husband and "wife" to that one lucky girl and 
perhaps even to the Navy. 


Barry came to the Academy from sunny Palo Alto, and 
immediately established himself as the ideal midshipman. From 
the beginning, Barry excelled in soccer and track. As for aca- 
demics, he never had trouble, because he always managed to find 
time out from his model building to get on the Dean's or Supt's 
List. His enthusiastic attitude and helpful ways have made him 
well known throughout the class. Barry's great personality and 
gleaming smile coupled with his determination and perseverance 
will guarantee him success in whatever career he choosesupon 


Bob-o, who hails from Arbutus, Maryland came to Navy from 
Western Maryland College. Besides the many hours he spent work- 
ing on his Nav-Ops major, he found time to work on the Lucky 
Bag staff and keep his figure with the Sailing Squadron. Bob is a 
happy-go-lucky guy who didn't really care too much for the 
system, as was evidenced by his exponential accumulation of 
demerits. A computer whiz, he devised programs to do just about 
anything, from grease to the sale of oranges in Florida. Engaged in 
a perpetual war against "beepers.". Bob could always be seen 
pinging to class. A great individual with a lot of ability. Bob will 
definitely be a great addition to whatever branch he chooses. 


Terry came to the Academy from Fort Worth, Texas as a very 
capable high school athlete, student and leader. He participated in 
Plebe football and did very well until injuries began to plague him. 
He never quite reached his entire potential here at the Academy 
but his capabilities and his desire are so dynamic are that he will 
never fail to succeed. He has an enthusiasm and an interest and a 
tremendous feeling for what the good things in life really are. The 
world still has a lot to expect from Terry and Terry has a lot left 
to give. 



Wino came to Navy via Badger High School in Lake Geneva, 
Wisconsin. Besides working many long hours on his Aero major, 
Wayne found time to wrestle on the Plebe team as well as partici- 
pate in company sports. His size is more than compensated for by 
his wit, which usually comes at unappropriate times. Wayne is a 
big-hearted individual who thought that every girl should have a 
chance to date a midshipman, and he is about the only midship- 
man who consistently lost the war with the laundry. Wayne by his 
determination and hard work will benefit any branch of the 
service that will take him. 


Dave, a native of Olympia (it's the water), Washington, brought 
to the Academy a refreshing combination of the honest and 
unpredictable. A hard worker with a keen mind is but half a 
definition. It must be remembered that pinochle usually took 
precedence over studying, and the pad, over all. Being at odds with 
Jacob Reed and the Boys, Neale-Cheese was quick to acquire a 
penchant for the "free clothes" bit, and it wasn't long before his 
civvies took up most of his locker. As the Academy has left its 
mark on him, Dave is sure to make a favorable impression on the 
Navy, where his initiative, quick smile, and easy going personality 
will serve him always. 


Bill came to the Academy an excellent athlete and honor 
student from Midland, Texas. Though the Academy's standards 
were high. Bill's standards were even higher. During the years at 
the Academy, Bill not only formed his own life, but by his very 
nature helped form the lives of those around him. Bill's hard work 
brought him a lot, places on the football and baseball teams, class 
president and others: but Bill's greatest honor was the respect he 
commanded from everyone around him. Bill's competence and 
unswerving devotion to what he believes in will make him a 
success in everything he endeavors to do. 


Turning down an offer from West Point because he had more 
of a party school in mind, Ed came to Navy from Braintree, 
Massachusetts. He never had any real trouble with academics, 
making both the Dean's List and Supt's List. Eddie spent most of 
his leisure time either keeping dust off his eyeballs or out on the 
athletic fields in an impromptu football game. Second class year, 
Ed overloaded, taking leader ship III under the expert guidance of 
his squad leaders. Ed's professional attitude and love of the sea 
coupled with a great sense of humor will make him a welcome 
addition to any wardroom. 


Charlie came to the Academy from Washington, D. C. He 
brought with him a light, cheerful nature and an intense interest in 
music. To those who did not know him, Charlie was the man 
behind the organ putting out the best sounds ever heard at Navy. 
To his closest friends he was the guy you could always count on 
for a coming P-work, or a clutch play for the company teams, help 
j, with homework, a recording tip and gouge for anything. The 
future can only bring the best to Charlie the man who gave Navy 


Tom gave up college in the mid-west to spend four years at 
Navy. He has spent his time sampling assorted sports and activities, 
but has remained loyal to the old favorites of sleeping and day- 
dreaming of life following our graduation. He never did become an 
academic star. Unsure of what he wanted to do or where he 
wanted to go in the service, his heart always longed for the days 
when he could return to the Ohio countryside around Wooster, 
the biggest little town in the world. A nature lover, Tom always 
appreciated even the smallest amount of time on a lonely beach or 
in a beautiful green forest. 



Mike came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in 
Waukesha, Wisconsin. Although studying for his Applied Science 
major took a good deal of his time, Mike found time for D & B, 
Lucky Bag staff, company sports and an occasional appearance on 
the Supt's List. He is his own man, makes up his own mind, shows 
great determination in his goals and opinions and loyalty to his 
friends. Mike's realism sometimes leads to pessimism and cynicism 
because he is his own strictest judge. He stands on his own merits 
and does not ask or need more. 


Tom came to Navy from Peru, Indiana via Bullis Prep. An 
accomplished swimmer, he had no difficulty with our rigorous P. 
T. program but directed his athletic endeavors to the intramural 
fields where he added much to the company's football and Softball 
teams. Tom's interest in finance is known throughout the Brigade 
and he will probably be the first to mount his ticker-tape to a golf 
cart. Tom will be remembered for his close link to the outside 
world. His perseverance and enthusiasm will make Tom a success 
in whatever he does. 


Ken came to Chesapeake University from Passaic, New Jersey. 
His strong personality and unique way with people quickly won 
him many friends. He so distinguished himself in Plebe academics, 
that he was interviewed by the Admiral as a candidate for civilian 
line, but Kenny, with his keen mind, knew a good thing when he 
saw it and fought his way back. He soon reached an understanding 
with the Academic Department — but P. T. still seemed to confuse 
him; for he swam like a cheetah and ran like a fish. Ken's 
determination and strength of character will be an asset to him 
and the Navy regardless of his service selection. 


Wild Bill or "Glitz", as he is affectionately called, came to 
Navy from Mayfield High School in Cleveland, Ohio. Bill could 
always be found running around, on the Reef Points staff, or at 
some German Club function. Being a lover of the humanities. Bill 
was always on the Supt's or Dean's Lists, although he found the 
nuts and bolts courses rather unstimulating. In spite of all his 
activities, he found many a quiet hour to contemplate the insides 
of his eyelids. His determination and unlimited ability, as well as 
his great sense of humor will always be an asset to him in whatever 
he endeavors to do. 


Steve came to the Academy after graduating from high school 
in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. A hard guy to miss in a crowd, Steve is 
one of the few genuinely great guys around. He is always ready 
with his warm smile and his friendly grin. Steve would attribute 
his joy to his personal faith in Jesus Christ. His ardent love for the 
out of doors was shown by his participation in crew while at the 
Academy, as well as such personal interests as camping and swim- 
ming. Steve is sure to be happy and successful in whatever he does 
after graduation, and will be a real credit to the Academy. 


A Navy Junior, HAW came to the Severn from the hills of 
Nevada. Quickly adjusting to the rigors of Academy life, Hal kept 
the pursuit of excellence foremost in his mind and astounded 
everyone with his academic achievement, never failing to refute all 
rumors of hidden intellect. Recognizable by his golden tan, dis- 
tinctive walk and ever present coca-cola, he was always ready to 
help a friend in need. An aspiring track star and a cowboy at heart, 
Hal appeased his western instincts by joining the cannoneers. His 
modest engaging manner and sharp analytic mind will lead to 
success in whatever field he chooses to follow.

Lieutenant Sargent is not a new ranl< nor an old one, but the 24th 
Company Officer. Strict military discipline is not his forte, as an 
astute observor might conclude after seeing his pride and joy in 
action. Due to our Lieutenant's "inadequacy", as some outsiders may 
term it, the 24th functions well, has fun, and looks forward to coming 
in contact with the U. S. Navy after graduation. However, the 24th is 
not without its essential military qualities. This fine marching machine 
repeatedly ranks high, exceptionally high, in p-rade after p-rade. It has 
often been said that this is a non-sweat company; however, this is an 
ugly rumor and totally untrue. 24 sweats as any normal group of men 
— whenever it gets hot. 24th company's sports teams are noted for 
how they play the game. Winnings certainly not everything, but its 
nice and once in awhile 24 comes out on top like it did in company 
competition for the 4th Batt. One area in which 24 is particularly 
outstanding, favorably outstanding, is academics. All in all, no matter 
which way you look at it, 24 stands out.

Keith came to the Naval Academy less than a month after 
graduating from high school in Austin, Minnesota. After a slow 
start in his academics Plebe year, he made raising his QPR and 
class standing one of his goals. While doing that he managed to get 
on both the Supt's and Dean's Lists several times. His varied 
interests led him to minors in Foreign Affairs and German. 
Although known more for his desire to play than his playing 
ability, Keith was on battalion and company sports teams for 
fencing, fieldball, rugby, and basketball. His abilities and desire to 
excel should carry him far in any field he enters. 


"Boods" hails from Cajwn County, Sulfur, Louisiana with 
several stops in between ranging from Guantanamo Bay to Severna 
Park before arriving at USNA. During Plebe year Joe decided to 
become one of Navy's finest fencers leaving behind five years of 
almost undefeated high school and junior college wrestling. Never 
one to let academics stand in the way of a good time or even a 
good snooze, Joe had no trouble keeping a respectable average. 
Most of his free time was spent with an informal intellectual group 
known as the "Ghetto." If the Navy is able to harness Joe's desire 
to succeed along with his vibrant personality they may well have 
one of their finest officers. 


"The House", as he was known on the gridiron, came to Navy 
from Glenbard West High in Illinois. A man of diverse talents and 
abilities, Tom lettered in Brigade boxing and football as well as 
making the Supt's List. "House" was noted around campus for his 
cool, unaffected manner with the opposite sex, his winning 
personality and his "you gotta love it" theory of life. In addition 
to his athletic and academic pursuits, Tom also spent much time in 
philosophical discussions with an informal intellectual group 
known as the "Ghetto." With his friendly manner, and his desire 
to win he will be a valuable asset to the Navy and an influence 
upon all with whom he serves. 


Dan Coleman meant skiing, the "pad", old dog train and an 
easy smile. It meant staring out the window, the Rolling Stones, 
term papers on the Crimean War and nine years of military school. 
Dan didn't exactly meet his challenges head on, he sailed around 
them. His finest hours were in his Flying Dutchman which was to 
him as the whaled was to Ahab. Who else would substitute white 
socks for missing gloves? What other future ace pilot would taxi 
his plane into a runway sign? Dan Coleman meant blind dates, 
snake ties, and desert boots. Dan Coleman meant that sometiines 
even in Annapolis, individuality is indestructible. 


As a man big in stature and heart, John was always a person 
you could talk to. Never too busy for anyone or anything he left a 
lot of people wondering how they too could pull "stars" without 
opening a book. "J. P." often talked of his love for boats and 
girls, in particular the long slender variety found way over at 
Hubbard Hall or D. C. Being a letterman, he conscientiously 
devoted much of his time on the Severn perfecting a good tan for 
those Supt's List weekends. Speaking of social life, from his initial 
"tea fight" success throughout his upper class years John was 
always one up on the group. It is not at all fitting to end his 
profile here, because the success of John's Life has just begun. 



Upon graduation from McMahon High in his native Norwalk, 
Fred attended Columbian Prep to better prepare for the rigorous 
schedule to follow. He maintained his athletic prowess by be- 
coming a member of the Plebe football team, but was forced to 
give the sport up in order to devote more time to his studies. 
Although he has had his share of troubles with academics, the 
determination with which he faced these obstacles is indicative of 
his character. More often than not, he spent Saturday night with 
the books in his room rather than with the boys on liberty. Fred's 
easy-going manner coupled with his remarkable self discipline will 
always be a credit both to himself and the Naval Service. 


Rob came to Navy in the summer of '65 with high hopes of a 
life of fun, girls and sports. However, the first two he had to 
patiently wait a year for much to his dismay, but the latter he 
quickly found in the form of gymnastics. Contrary to Navy 
tradition, Rob's first love was the trampoline in Macdonough Hall, 
rather than the blue one in his room. It was, however, second on 
his table of priorities, with studies a far third. And if you're ever in 
the snow country of the northeast you'll probably find him 
dodging trees. As for the future, he has always had high aspirations 
and hopes that someday soon they will be fulfilled. They will be! 


From the minute he stepped into Bancroft Hall until long after 
his naval career is ended, Lee will be remembered by all for his 
warm and friendly manner. Never one to pass up a challenge, Lee 
left the wilds of Nebraska to begin his career at Navy. Turning 
down the chance to further excel in track and cross country, 
"Ducky" branched out and lent his invaluable support to the 
lacrosse and company soccer teams. Although his room was invari- 
ably bristling from activity, whether it be for academic help, or a 
classmate needing a haircut, Lee always managed good grades. 
Anyone who has associated with Lee knows that his future in the 
Navy will indeed be a bright one. 


A farm boy at heart who arrived at USNA in the summer of 
'65 from the village of Schaghticoke, New York is a fond animal 
lover, especially horses. This would definitely explain Ross' desire 
to understand others in a much deeper sense than is common in 
this day and age. As for sports, one could always find Ross 
working hard to achieve his own set goals running cross country 
and track. Away from the Academy, he was not an uncommon 
sight to the skiing slopes of New England. His resourceful manner 
and amiable personality will undoubtedly assure him of a happy 
life and a successful career. "Win without boasting, lose without 
excuse" — an asset which Ross possesses and will carry him far. 


Tom, who is better known as "Ets" or "The Old Man of the 
Sea," came to the Academy by way of Columbian Prep and 
Moravian College. He hails from Quakertown, Pennsylvania and is 
always ready to argue to merits of Dutch food and professional 
football. He was active in the Scuba Club, company fieldball and 
"B" Softball and varsity wrestling. Because of unfortunate injuries, 
he was unable to participate in more varsity sports. Despite his 
tremendous inability to spell anything in the English language, he 
always maintained a respectable academic average. However, his 
greatest talent was as the chief "vat" mixer and specialized in Beat 
Army celebrations. He will go far in the naval service due to his 
winning smile and congenial personality. 


"Yrral Sllaf" came to Navy from North Carolina's Fred T. 
Foard High School. Lar's enthusiasm and determination was first 
realized on the athletic fields where he was a halfback for the 
varsity football team as well as a stalwart on both company 
fieldball and softball teams. An advocate of at least two or three 
girls in every port "Sllaf" could be found in his leisure moments 
pursuing his first love, the opposite sex. While academics were 
never of prime concern. Much of his free time was taken up in 
philosophical discussions with an informal intellectual group known 
as the "Ghetto". Always ready to help a friend, Lar's warm and 
friendly nature will assure him of success in the future. 



Dan came to the Academy from San Luis Obispo, California 
after serving three years in the Navy, where he developed the pride 
and devotion to duty which have been an inspiring example to 
those who have known him. He has participated actively in com- 
pany fieldball and battalion YP's where his competitive spirit and 
will to win served as a motivating force for his team and ship- 
mates. What impresses people about Dan are his high standards 
and goals, his strong determination and more important, his ability 
to succeed. 


Harold arrived at USNA by way of the Hotchkiss School, LSU 
and Louisana Tech. "Harry", an Air Force brat, has done much 
traveling but likes to call Louisiana his home. Harold had a hard 
time adjusting to USNA academics, however, after a rough first 
semester, things began to come easy to this easygoing midshipman. 
Harold was a member of the Scuba Club and NAFAC and partici- 
pated in many company and batt sports which would leave him 
the most time to pursue his favorite pastime — "the pad". "Harry" 
is best known for his unique ability to always get the job done and 
have a good time while doing it. 


"Chipmunk" came to Navy from Cross Keys High School in 
Atlanta after a year of NROTC at Auburn University. It first 
appeared that he was studying in pre-med. The "Munk" spent two 
tours in Navy hospitals due to injuries sustained in varsity gym on 
the trampoline. After retiring from the trampoline in the gym he 
concentrated his efforts on the blue one in his room. After 
validating Plebe year, Huffer settled down to the long, hard grind 
between weekends. Most of his free time was spent in philo- 
sophical discussions with an informal, intellectual group known as 
the "Ghetto." Jim was well known around campus for his good 
nature and easy going style. His ability to win friends will ensure 
success in his career. 


With a name — like Royal Dubose Joslin you've got to be 
different and Duty was! A tanned face, a blonde mop of hair in 
perpetual motion, "Jos" never stopped doing something. A Navy 
Junior he traveled a lot, a tradition he kept up as a varsity sailor. 
Stars were no stranger to this day student. He was at home in 
NAVOPS as on the touch football field or in a Flying Dutchman. 
Not everybody thinks it's economical to fly to California, or 
necessary to dump a waste can full of water on a Firstie's new 
convertible or logical to import a drag from California so she can 
see him between restriction musters. Nobody except "Dub" 
Joslin, that is. 


Tom, known as "Klos" among his friends, came to the Naval 
Academy after a year and a half at Queens College in Queens, New 
York. During the winter months, he could be found either playing 
company heavyweight football or battalion handball. But in the 
fall and spring Tom, a member of the Naval Reserve before coming 
to Navy, could be found on the Chesapeake Bay as a member of 
the YP Squadron. He has held various positions in the YP Squad- 
ron including officer-in-charge of his battalion YP as a segundo. 
His ready humor and lively spirit as well as his love for the sea and 
the "finer" things of life will aid Tom to succeess in his chosen 
profession of Navy Line. 


"Krasher", as he is known to all of his freinds, hails from New 
Britain, Connecticut. Before coming to Annapolis, he spent a year 
at Columbian Prep where he starred at halfback for the football 
team. A knee operation kept him from playing varsity ball so he 
devoted his energies to the company football and Softball teams. 
Although Jim managed to appear on the Supt's List many times 
while working towards a demanding Math major, he was never one 
to pass up a card game. He was always willing to help anyone and 
no conversation was dull with "the life of the party." The out- 
standing qualities that have made Jim a success at the Academy 
assure him a successful career upon joining the fleet. 



Neil, hailing from Seattle, Washington, is prepared to expound 
on the merits of God's country at the drop of a hat. While his time 
was liberally taken up by obtaining a major in Foreign Affairs, 
sailing flying Dutchmen, being active in the Foreign Relations 
Club, NAFAC, CONTAC, being organizations editor of the Lucky 
Bag and being an active participant in civic problems of Annapolis 
he has managed to make Dean's List, dragevery weekend, beat the 
system and at all times question what others follow blindly. Being 
such an individual Neil will either make it BIG or never be heard 
of again. Suffice it to say — Beware fleet, here comes "Mat." 


Entering June 30th was David L. McLintock, mild mannered 
midshipman. Exiting four years later, a man with active interests 
ranging from fast women to faster cars. Always blessed with a 
technical touch, Dave could usually be found shorting out his 
stereo or dropping his transmission on Cooper Road. Although 
seldom bothering to draw half his textbooks, Dave proved a little 
study and a lot of sleep were enough to capture those extra Supt's 
List weekends. "Mac" always said there was nothing like having a 
girl rub your back and although he was often "S. I. R." for fouled 
up radar gear he never complained of a bad back. Dave should 
truly go farther in life than any of us. 


A product of Xavier High School in New York, Bill came to 
the Academy with a taste of military life, which soon became 
evident in his leadership abilities and academic prowess. Bill has 
been a hard worker in all of his endeavors and has also displayed 
his determination and sense of good play on the company light- 
weight football team. Bill's persistent efforts paid off as he was a 
continual member of the Supt's List. His energetic personality and 
helping hand to others in academic pursuits is long to be remem- 
bered by many of his classmates. Bill's friendly attitude and 
mannerisms have also added considerably to his overall like- 
ableness and he is sure to be a fine asset to the fleet. 


John came to the Academy after spending a year at Marin 
Junior College where he forsook the gay, carefree atmosphere of 
college life for the more spartan environment of the Academy. 
John devoted most of his athletic time to intramural athletics 
being on the Brigade Champion football team, battalion track and 
Brigade boxing where he was runner-up in the Brigade boxing 
finals one year and won his varsity "N" the next year. John 
managed to keep his grades above average but not without many 
lost liberty hours. John is best characterized by his good nature 
and sincere interest in the people around him. This, combined 
with hard work will lead him to a successful career in the Navy. 


After a brief interlude at the University of Texas, Charlie 
found himself at the Academy. It was soon apparent that aca- 
demics was not his strongest "forte" so Youngster year found him 
happily shoveling in the Bull Department. When it came to athlet- 
ics, Charlie was a real enthusiast. In the afternoons he could be 
found leading the company soccer team or lifting weights. Charlie 
will best be remembered though, for the courage of his convictions 
and a willingness to help the not so fortunate. He was always 
giving of himself to other midshipmen, the underprivileged of 
Annapolis and was a Big Brother. He made the time and effort 
while others made excuses. The Fleet will be better when it 
receives this man from Texas. 



"J. K." was a true man of the West. With his black hair and 
rangy build, he looked more at home in a saddle than on the 
bridge of a YP and, when he strummed his guitar and sang "Blood 
in the Saddle", one could almost hear the coyotes howling over 
the hills. Even under pressure from the system, those traditional 
western virtues of individuality, competiveness and sincerity 
characterized everything John did. His grades were always a little 
higher, his drags a little cuter, his athletics a little quicker, and his 
"Dear Johns" a little more spectacular than those around him. "J. 
K." always met the challenge academically, athletically and 
socially. In June 1965, Genesee, Idaho, population 200 persons, 
sent her finest to Annapolis. 


A 1962 graduate of Lake Charles High in Lafayette, Louisana, 
Richard traded in his Marine uniform after one year of service to 
attend the Academy. R. P. is probably best known for his easy- 
going manner, excellent sense of humor, and ability to get along 
with anyone. Richard could always be found during study hour 
either in someone else's room, or at the phones getting a date for 
Saturday night. An excellent tackle on the varsity football team 
for three years, Richard still found time to play cards and work 
word puzzles, but never failed to hit the books when necessary. A 
true gentleman, and lady's man, Richard's personality and abilities 
should make him a certain success. 


Coming to us by way of Archbishop Curley High School in 
Baltimore, Bernie arrived at Canoe U. confident in his fine abili- 
ties. A valuable player on the batt football, rugby and company 
fieldball teams, Bernie also had little trouble making Supt's List. 
Never one to spend his weekends in the hall studying, he soon 
made many close friends and was "discovered" to be a natural 
comedian at parties; his interests ranging from Corvettes to the fair 
sex. With his devotion to duty, loyalty, and good humor Bernie 
will certainly be a credit to the Service and a friend to those 
fortunate enough to serve with him. 


"One hundred and twenty-five pounds of twisted steel and sex 
appeal" is a phrase that would be familiar to anyone who knew 
Tom Plebe year. 'Saunts' comes from Hudson, Wisconsin, from 
which he brought his many assorted academic and athletic skills to 
the Academy. Tom proved his athletic abilities both as a Brigade 
boxer for four years and as an ace pitcher for the company 
Softball team. As a student, he also has excelled, wearing "stars" 
plebe year: however, by second class year, tired of the Academic 
glory, he devoted much of his time to social hobbies. Always the 
life of the parties in Philadelphia, especially Youngster year, he 
never passed up an opportunity for a good time. 


Van came to the Academy from Jacksonville, Florida. Tom 
straightened out his Congressman and soon found himself fighting 
Plebe academics, pneumonia and the Man from Baton Rouge, who 
struck fear in the hearts of many. Luckily Tom came up Sat dead 
week of Plebe year and through diligent application was on or near 
Supt's List from then on. Tom could usually be found during the 
afternoon at the handball courts, wheezing his way to victory or in 
his room fighting the pad monster. Tom's loyalty to friends, his 
willingness to lend a hand and his drive to get the job done will 
make him a great asset to the Fleet. 


Mike, better known as "Doc", came to Navy from Sonoma, 
California via anything but the direct route. Mike joined the Navy 
as an enlisted man after a year went to NAPS becoming a member 
of the vanishing breed of NAPSTERS. Although academics never 
came easy for Mike, he still found time to spin discs for WRNV 
and drive boats on the Chesapeake as a member of the YP 
Squadron. Mike has held various positions in the YP Squadron, 
including Squadron Engineering Officer, which will stand him in 
good stead for a career in Navy Line. Mike has also played batt 
handball and Plebe squash and won a sweater Plebe Summer in a 
squash tournament.

For 25th Company, this was the year of change. The driving fancer 
were the succession to power of the new first class, an influx of 
athletic prowess from the 19th Company second class, and not least, 
the new liberality of Lieutenant Giasier, predicated, no doubt, on the 
departure of the 5th Battalion Officer. 

Being given a freer hand in company policy, we responded by 
winning the fall p-rade competition, finishing second in sports, and 
leading in color competition at the end of the semester. 

Humor was another key word this year. No one will forget Dirty 
Al chasing a baseball off the seawall. Hardy dropping his sword at the 
first p-rade, or Ward stepping into a six-foot deep mud puddle. 

Company tastes in cars ran from Corvettes to Dave Russell's 
Volkswagen Camper. 

Grey Hansen liked 1st Class cruise so much he decided to go again 
after graduation.

LT P. K. Giasier, USN 



Coming from a military family, and a son of the "Stars and 
Bars," Guy left his land-locked home in West Columbia, South 
Carolina to join the Blue and Gold. Somewhat of a wire-walker, 
Guy had his bouts with the Academic Department but always 
emerged bright eyed, confident and unscathed. A vicious com- 
petitor in pistol, as well as softball, football and trampoline (blue, 
that is). Guy has always been ambitious and competent in all 
facets of midshipman life, including extracurricular activities, 
where his help in the Photo Club and in certain "non-Navy" 
activities is renowned. With his wit and cool-headedness as an 
asset, we can be sure that an exciting and rewarding career will be 


Arriving from Scarsdale, New York, full of the tales spun by 
his brother, himself an Academy graduate. Brad discovered the life 
of a midshipman first hand. From the beginning. Brad had one 
thing going for him — tennis. He served Navy well as a Plebe 
playing both Plebe tennis and squash, playing varsity tennis in the 
years following. Through his determination to overcome Science 
and Engineering courses in favor of his chosen field, economics, 
his grades have improved steadily, placing him in the Supt's List 
category. Always with a good word for anyone he meets. Brad gets 
along well with all. His congeniality and dedication should make 
him a success wherever his steps may take him in the future. 


Blake's came to the Academy from Northwestern Prep School 
in his hometown, St. Paul. A true Minnesotan, Bob is an avid 
outdoorsman. Leave time usually finds him on one of his states 
famous lakes, slaloming on water skis or breaking speed records on 
his snowmobile. Sports are his first love, but his inquisitive nature 
gives him a variety of interests as broad as his range at short stop. 
Despite an easy going nature. Bob fought an epic battle with the 
Academic Department for four years, finally emerging victorious 
with a History major. Such a fine competitor will be sure to find 
his way to the top wherever his interests take him. 


Hailing from Wayne, New Jersey, Jim (known as "Bookie" by 
his close friends) came to Navy by way of Newark College of 
Engineering and the Naval Reserve. After the rigors of Plebe year, 
Jim settled down on academics and was occasionally on the Supt's 
List. Plebe year, Jim found his great love in life, the sailboat. Big 
or small, from Frostbiting in the winter to the Newport — Ber- 
muda race in the summer. He was always found out on the bay. 
His great desire to sail helped him to earn his yawl command 
Youngster year. His fondness for the sea and uncanny way with 
the Steam Department will make him an asset to any ship he 
serves on. 


Pem came to the Academy from the rugged Tennessee hills. 
Military routine was certainly nothing new, after six years at the 
McCallie School, and his easygoing manner enabled him to meet 
all the challenges of life at Navy. With a major in Mechanical 
Engineering as his goal, "Cools" has done well enough in all phases 
of academics to be on both Dean's List and Supt's List consis- 
tently. Athletically, he was active in lightweight crew until the 
rigors of knocking 20 pounds off his sturdy frame to make weight 
convinced him that his talents could be better employed in intra- 
murals. Pem's experience on the Plebe Detail and as a striper will 
undoubtedly help him to enjoy a successful and rewarding career 

in the Naval Service. ,„c 




Virginia Beach's loss was tine Academy's gain. Todd's sense of 
responsibility permeated everything that he undertook. He was an 
All-American in pistol Plebe year and his academic achievements 
won him a Trident Scholarship. Yet, he would always be most 
willing to help his fellow midshipmen. A quick wit and warm 
personality made him greatly respected among his classmates. 
Being the son of a Navy Captain, Todd is highly motivated 
towards a career in the Navy. His perseverance, ability and fine 
character will make anyone proud to serve with him. 


Ken came driectly from high school to join the ranks of those 
who go down the sea in ships, believing that books are a man's 
best friend. With stars in his eyes he has been on the Supt's List 
every semester since Plebe year. Ken spent most of his weekends, 
being a married man, pulling an oar instead of dragging. Gar began 
rowing as a Plebe and continued as a varsity squad member and 
"N" winner for three years, he is also an avid football lover. Upon 
graduation Ken plans to go nuclear power for which his Marine 
Engineering major will prove valuable. 


Chris came to the Naval Academy from Baltimore, Maryland. 
He is a hardy defender of that city and all its many professional 
athletic teams, especia-ly his beloved Colts. Whether on the ath- 
letic field himself or in the classroom he could be depended on to 
do his best. In high school he developed an interest in lacrosse that 
he carried over to USNA and pursued until he had secured a 
position on the varsity squad, where he proved to be a valuable 
asset. Early Youngster year Chris discovered a devotion to the pad 
and an interest in Operations Analysis. He has excelled in both 
areas. When Chris graduates the Navy will gain a fine officer and 


Ward came to the Academy directly from St. Paul's School in 
Baltimore, Maryland, where he devoted his time to lacrosse and 
books. At the Academy, Ward passed off the rigors of Plebe year 
with his characteristic nonchalance. While working toward a minor 
in Aerospace Engineering, he found plenty of time for athletics 
and was a regular on company sport teams. His interest in Navy 
Air attracted him to membership in the American Institute of 
Astronautics and Aeronautics. Never one to strictly limit his 
thoughts to Navy. Ward maintained an avid interest in fast cars 
and cool clothes. And on everything he did, he left his trademark 
of precision and perfection, that will make him a success wherever 
he goes in the Navy. 


Paradise is a distant dream for most of us, not so for John, a 
Native Hawaiian. A real easy-going and well liked individual, John 
has maintained a level-headed and mature attitude which has 
allowed the year to pass easier. A leader among his classmates in 
the company, he also worked hard in his academics and has 
maintained a good academic standing. His fine ability as an all- 
around athlete completes the picture of a man who will be an asset 
to the Naval Service. 


Al, an Army brat, came to the Academy straight from high 
school in California after spending his earlier years in such places 
as New York, Germany and Texas. Whenever leave rolled around, 
Al never losing his desire to travel, always had a long way to go, 
especially when his parents were transferred toOkinawa. Always in 
good spirits, Al was liked by all. He studied hard and played hard, 
maintaining a Supt's List QPR as an Oceanography major and 
being an invaluable asset to the company lightweight football and 
batt tennis teams — no matter what the activity, "Dirty Al" 
always gave his all. Wherever the future takes Al, he is sure to find 
success. 4Qy 


Always willing to give you the shirt off his back, Hugh fre- 
quently did just that as well as occasionally supplying a blind 
date to complennent the shirt. Charleston certainly must have 
rubbed off on him because, when it came to professional know- 
ledge, Hugh must have written the book. The night before Nav 
Ops homework was due, he was the most popular midshipman in 
the Brigade. He was never hard to find but, once you found him, 
getting him out of bed was another matter altogether. Hugh's 
generosity and avid interest in the Navy will certainly make it easy 
for him to attain his sleeve of gold. 


Jim, better known as "Gootes" came to the Academy from 
Dunedin, Florida. He made his athletic debut on the squash courts 
Plebe year, but his performance on both the Youngster and 
Second Class runs are what will be remembered at every reunion 
of the twenty-fifth company. His wit will not go unwanted in the 
Fleet where there is a ready audience for his amusing stories. 
Although an excellent scholar, stars have alluded him. Jim, with 
his outgoing manner will be a valuable asset in any wardroom, any 
ship, any Fleet, any Navy. 


Greg came to the shores of the Severn from the great state of 
Texas and, as a true Texan, would argue the virtues of his home to 
anyone within earshot. He successfully weathered Plebe year, 
excelling in football, squash, lacrosse and the academic life of 
USNA. The next three years were spent battling the Physics and 
Wires Departments in Sampson Hall and as one of "Bildy's Boys" 
on the varsity lacrosse field. Greg was four year company honor 
representative and generally conceeded the title of Mr. Fix-It by 
classmates with broken stereos. Never one to shy away from a 
good time, Greg found enough in his days as a mid and in June of 
1969, the Navy will gain a fine officer. 


Phil came to the Academy fresh out of high school from sunny 
California near San Francisco. Originally recruited to play football 
for Navy, a knee injury forced Phil to settle for company intra- 
murals the remainder of his stay. Among other interests Phil 
played guitar in one of the rock groups during his Second class 
year. While at the Academy Phil majored in politics and economics 
in which he was quite interested. A firm believer in the philosophy 
of working hard and playing hard, Phil seemed to enjoy his times 
at the Academy and, even more so, those at home. Whichever 
direction Phil heads after graduation, he will be one of the depend- 
able ones who gets the job done. 


Jim, a Navy junior, came to the Naval Academy after spending 
a good portion of his younger years in Europe. His outgoing 
personality and keen wit brought him many friends within the 
Brigade. A good all around athlete, Jim competed in a variety of 
intramural sports, but spent most of his afternoons in his last two 
years at the Academy up in the weight room. With his strong 
professional interest in the Navy and his intense drive toward 
success, Jim will undoubtedly become a standout during his years 
of service in the Fleet. 


When thinking of Chris, the first thoughts for many will be 
associated with his swimming ability. Those of us in the company 
will remember him better for his outgoing and sincere attitude. A 
determined but easygoing individual, Chris has very positive ideas 
about a Naval career. Energetic in various types of activities Chris 
can always be counted on to add to things and boost them along. 
An individual of his character holds great potential for a pro- 
ductive and rewarding life in the Navy. 



Bill came to Navy straight from McKinleyville High School 
where he was valedictorian of his class. He soon became known as 
the man with iron concentration, and it was easy to see why he 
got along with academics. An avid participator in sports in high 
school, Bill brought his talents and enthusiasm to battalion tennis 
and company football. With an interest in music extending back to 
high school days. Bill furthered that interest at the Academy by 
joining the NA-10 and the Drum and Bugle Corps. Relaxed and 
easy going. Bill showed us the beginnings of a cool professionalism 
which should bring many rewards after graduation. 


Soon after his graduation from high school in St. Petersburg, 
Florida, Mike Lops realized his life-long ambition when he passed 
through the hallowed halls of USNA for the first time. It did not 
take long for Mike to realize that his greatest efforts could be 
more profitably" spent in places other than the academic depart- 
ments and as a result he could always be found spending his 
freebies in a prone position. Always ready for a good time Mike 
could always be found dragging a certain brunette on weekends or 
any other time the opportunity presented itself. There can be no 
doubt that Mikes vibrant personality and friendly wit will make 
him a welcome addition to the ranks of the Naval Aviators. 


J. J. came out of the coal fields of Pennsylvania, went through 
a year at NAPS, and entered the Naval Academy's hallowed halls 
well prepared. John brought with him a love for sports and a fine 
competitive spirit. After two years on the junior varsity football 
team, he spent his last year concentrating on company sports. His 
mature view of life combined with an unfailing sense of humor 
provides John with a personality that wins him the confidence and 
respect of people everywhere. John took academics seriously and 
was consistently over 3.00. He was also active in many extracur- 
ricular activities including the Lucky Bag staff. Graduation will 
find John taking with him everything essential for an outstanding 
career and rewarding life. 


Rick, a native of Santa Barbara, California, gave up a potential 
career as a ski bum in order to come to the Naval Academy. 
Immediately, he set his sights on a career in the submarine service. 
Through hard work, many hours at the library, and gallons of 
midnight oil, "Match" earned a Supt's List QPR as an Applied 
Science Major. As for his afternoons, you would have found Eric 
(if he wasn't in the pad) in the squash courts or sailing. His 
easygoing, likable personality coupled with a fine sense of humor 
won Rick many lifelong friends while at the Academy. Match's 
high motivation, common sense and determination will certainly 
lead him to a brilliant career in the Naval Service. 



Jerry or "Moon", as he is called by his classmates, came to the 
Academy from Cheltenham, Pennsylvania. From the start, it was 
obvious that Jerry was here for a purpose. He spent many week- 
ends in the Hall diligently working on his academics. Often, he was 
rewarded by making the Supt's or Dean's Lists. When he was not 
at the books, you could find him in the fencing loft, preparing for 
his next collegiate opponent. Jerry's dependability and dedication 
were quickly noted by his friends. This dedication, along with his 
high ideals will make Jerry a well-respect officer. 


Jim came to the Academy directly out of high school from the 
windy city of Chicago. In four years, Jim has contributed much to 
the Academy, especially in varsity football, indoor and outdoor 
track, being an outstanding performer in all three. Besides his 
athletic abilities, Jim had a talent for the books which helped him 
to be one of the leading Chemistry majors at the Academy. Jim 
has a propensity for making friends, which is, indeed, another of 
his assets. Reflecting on his four years at the Academy, Jim's 
future should be very successful and rewarding. In whatever direc- 
tion Jim heads after graduation, he will prove a great person to 
work with and the man who will get the job done. 


Dave's prior service in the Navy left him enthusiastic and raring 
to go when he took up residence on the banks of the Severn. 
Dave's love of the water extended even to his choice of sports, and 
afternoons would bring the snap of his whip and the ring of his 
voice as he acted as overseer of the crew teams. His knowledge of 
meteorology led to his being nominated "official company 
weatherman and rain maker," although it was felt that his in- 
adequacy in providing a good rain every Monday and Wednesday 
stemmed from the fact that he didn't have to march. Dave's 
ambition and stick-to-it-iveness will benefit him greatly in any 
field he chooses. 


Leaving his beloved home in the Rockies, Ken came directly 
upon graduation from high school to the Severn, where his love of 
the West was never lost, despite the kidding by his classmates of 
"Teve's Barn" (his room) where a fellow mid was always welcome 
to the Western hospitality of a hot cup of coffee and one of the 
better department stores in Annapolis. Academics proved to be 
little problem to Ken and left time for cramming his mind with 
everything from Freud to Ayn Rand. Getting into many mid's 
hair, but always gaining friends by it, Teve was a friend to all with 
his service to the Brigade and willingness to help. Whatever branch 
of the service Ken chooses will certainly gain a fine officer. 


As a graduate of Norland High School in Miami, Florida, 
"Turns" set out to make Bullis Prep aware of his presence, but 
after a year there, the Blue and Gold call and the salty spray of the 
Severn lured him to the Academy. Arch has never had trouble 
with academics. Making the Dean's List every semester since the 
beginning of Youngster Year, he worked towards a major in Aero- 
space Engineering. Arch played Plebe lacrosse until a heart- 
breaking knee injury sidelined his varsity efforts and gave the 
Brigade an outstanding intramural performer in everything from 
volleyball to heavyweights. His conscientious attitude and sharp 
intellect are sure to bring him success in Pensacola and in the air.

The 26th Company experienced satisfaction and success during the 
year, finding it easy to excel in sports and academics. The athletes 
nailed down 1st place in the fall sports competition, provided winning 
records in every sport and claimed several starters on Navy's 1968 
football team. Company scholars were many resulting in lengthy 
Supt's and Dean's Lists. 

Company activities included supporting a Vietnamese family and 
throwing a Christmas party for orphans of the Annapolis area. What 
ability the company had in sport and study, it lacked in marching and 
tugging; fall Thursdays found 26 holding down an inferior position in 
rankings and the proteen boys ruined a perfect season by winning 
their last meet. 

1968-69 proved to be just another year of excellence for 26th 
company. It was a continuation of improvement shown over several 
previous years and placed the company among the leaders in the

Barry's primary goal of overall self-betterment never took a 
back seat to anything in four years here, and the results were well 
worth the effort. Through his extreme conscientiousness he de- 
veloped himself into an exceptionally fine Dean's List student, an 
outstanding athlete and a very dynamic and tactful leader. All 
those who know Barry have felt his impression on them and will 
have to agree that because of his high degree of professionalism 
and social adaptability, he will surely contribute much to the fleet 
in his bid for one of the best officers of our time. 


An Army brat with too much soul for the men in khaki, Rich 
came to us from Florida and prep school. With his quick wit and 
worldly knowledge, Rich was a natural mid, always able to talk his 
way into anything. Coming to the Academy was the realization of 
a long standing goal for Rich and he has spent his four years here 
improving himself. When not sleeping or studying he could be 
found singing or working with various academy activities. Athletic 
endeavors found him on the soccer field or sailing. Browny's free 
time was enjoyably spent relaxing with the finer things of life. 
Always an easy guy to make friends. Rich is assured of a happy 
and successful life in the Navy. 


Denny arrived at the Academy straight from the Garden State 
where he swung a big bat at a local high school and won all-state 
honors. An all-around athlete, he continued in his success at Navy 
turning in four years of broken fingers and base hits for the 
Duffer's all-stars. For his outstanding efforts behind the plate, 
Denny was awarded all-east honors. Barely missing the finals for 
the Olympic swimming team, he still managed to pass his Second 
Class swim. Academics came easily to Denny, but unfortunately, 
grades didn't as he spent many hours under the rays of his study 
lamp. However, the Supply Corps has found a welcome addition in 
this man who is proud to call himself a professional. 


Burls was the one to talk to if you were planning a trip, 
because chances were that he had already been there. This well- 
travelled Navy Junior, having spent his high school years in Paris, 
now calls Cape Cod his home. Determination and hard work were 
Big Dave's tickets through academic hardships, yet he always 
found time to catch the best of the sports in the yard, pick up on 
the latest in pop music, or make the social scene in style. His 
savoirfaire earned for him the position of personal advisor and 
confident to many of his classmates. Dave's dedication to the 
Naval Service insures him of a long and successful career with our 
country's finest. 


Four years at Naval Academy have only served to develop the 
natural ability determination that Bill brought with him as a Plebe. 
After getting off to a good start, he has continued to move ahead 
at the same demanding pace which has earned him consistently 
outstanding academic and athletic achievements. "Big Bill" or 
"Cims", as he is known by his many friends, possesses the self- 
confidence and ability that made him a natural leader among us. 
Bill's most enduring quality however, has been his desire for 
personal excellence which has served him well in the past and will 
continue to do so in the future. 



Raised in Morehead City, North Carolina, Mike ventured to the 
Academy after experiencing a year of college life at the University 
of North Carolina. Bringing with him a unique ability to find a 
laugh in almost any situation and high sights set on eventually 
manning the stick of an F-4, Claps was more than able to meet the 
high standards of the Academy. His highly competitive spirit made 
him key playmaker on the company basketball team four years 
running. Mike decided to a Math major would set him into a 
cockpit and has been seen several times on the Supt's List. Mike's 
motivation and interest in Navy Air will undoubtedly lead him to 
find the success he desires, while his friends will always hold his 
friendship in the highest esteem. 


Mike or Bernie, as his numerous friends call him, came to the 
Academy a superb athlete and honor student of Chaminade High 
in Dayton, Ohio. The Academy's high standards and goals were 
exceeded and successfully achieved by Mike through his indus- 
trious efforts. The many long hours which were spent behind "the 
Green Fence" proved most worthwhile in Mike's being selected to 
the coveted position of Captain of "the Big Blue", the varsity 
football team. Bernie's congenial nature and willingness to suc- 
cumb to the pad both provided the necessary outlet and willing- 
ness from the frequent ribbing which friends provided. Mike will 
always be remembered as the man to have around during difficult 
times when a true friend is needed. 


Marv came to us from Spokane, Washington — in the great 
Pacific Northwest. From the start of our first academic year he 
established a reputation as a hard worker, which culminated in his 
being on both the Supt's and Dean's Lists continuously. Yet he 
was never too busy to help out his classmates, particularly in his 
major area of interest — Mathematics. Excellence is academics was 
not Marv's only achievement. He was a varsity letter winner in 
fencing, and captain of the sabre team during our first class year. 
Marv's drive and determination, coupled with his ever congenial 
personality will stand him in good stead regardless of which 
branch of the Naval Service he enters. 


Coming to us after a year of college life in his hometown, 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Brian was still one of the youngest 
members of the Class of '69. However, he quickly adjusted to 
Academy life and excelled both militarily and academically. Never 
one to stay in his room on Saturday night, if he wasn't on a date 
you could find Brian in the wardroom in front of the television. 
Brian also participated actively in athletics, aiding his battalion 
team to win the Brigade fencing championship. Second Class year. 
As varsity fencing manager. First Class year, his initiative and 
organizational ability greatly reduced the problems of his team- 
mates. These same outstanding qualities will assure him success as 
one of the Navy's finest officers. 


Craig came to the Academy from Tucson, Arizona where his 
main pursuits were centered around athletics. Since arriving here, 
Craig has concentrated his efforts on football and boxing. Upon 
graduation, it will be Navy Air if his eyes prevail, otherwise he 
would eventually like to get into the Underwater Demolition 
Team. Craig's hobbies include anything athletic especially snow 
skiing, traveling, reading, with Frank Yerby and Robert Roark 
being his favorite authors, playing poker and going to the horse 
races, and listening to jazz and rhythm and blues. 


Never let it be said that Chergy stayed in to study when there 
was a party to be found. Bill, one of the original college guys, 
brought his talents for having a great time. No matter what the 
conditions, along with the famous New York crowd. Friendly with 
everybody, underclass and upperclass alike. Bill was always captain 
of the Bancroft E.I. team. Never turning down anyone's request 
for help. An asset to all the intramural teams. Bill was best in 
basketball, helping out both the company and batt teams. High 
class standing and a positive naval attitude make it a certainty that 
Chergy will pursue a long and hard working Naval career. 



Rollie graduated from St. Thomas High School in Houston, 
Texas where he was named All-State halfback. His talents con- 
tinued onto the Navy gridiron where he is popularly known as the 
"dog." Football is not his only sport. His prowess on the football 
field and the Navy track team is matched only by his smoothness 
which he readily displays whenever putting down a few bars of 
"two steps from the blues." Besides Rollie's hobbies of sports and 
singing he loves to delve into a good poker game or any other 
game of chance. 


A product of suburban Philadelphia, Dave greeted Annapolis 
with a carefree look towards college life and a genuine desire to 
live life fully. He accepted the rigors of Academy routine with 
little undo concern, realizing that the existence of a good sound or 
a lively femme made all else seem secondary. His casual exterior 
was, however, offset by hard work and determination. He, like the 
rest, took both academics and athletics in stride but found the 
strides lengthen as he moved towards graduation. His talents were 
well appreciated on the company soccer and Softball teams. A 
welcomed additon to any command, Dave will find success and 
satisfaction in whatever he does. 


Heinz came to the Academy after spending two years in the 
Marine Corps. His German background carried him into the 
Foreign Language field where he sought his major. An avid sports 
fan, Heinz could always be seen in the weightlifting room getting 
ready for weightlifting competition in the spring. Reading novels 
by his favorite authors took up most of his spare time. Although 
he found the Academy quite challenging at times his easy going 
attitude kept him from getting too upset about anything. 


Dave, or Mac as he is called by all who know him, made his 
way to the Academy from God's country as he claims his home- 
town of Lisbon, Ohio is called. There was, however, one inter- 
mediate stop at NAPS. Dave came to the Academy on the prowess 
of his ability on the basketball court, but soon proved this ability 
extended into the academic field as well. He chose Math as his 
major and had little trouble for his name appeared consistently on 
the Supt's List. In athletics Mac has been an outstanding com- 
petitor on the basketball and tennis courts. Whatever future Dave 
decides to pursue he will have little trouble for his magnetic 
personality will bring him friends and success. 



Dave built quite a reputation for himself during his four years 
at the Academy. "Mr. Term Paper" was known to spend many a 
weekend in his room successfully pursuing his Foreign Relations 
major. It was said that he would do whatever was necessary to put 
himself on top and that was just what he did with his high grades 
and high stripes. Dave is respected and admired by all his class- 
mates for his enthusiasm, conscientiousness and self-instilled drive. 
No one was ever more dedicated to a military career than "Heavy" 
and it is certain that Marine Corps will have in him one of the 
finest and hardest working officers it could ask for. 


This chubby, shy young Plebe who arrived in Annapolis on his 
18th birthday came a long way in four years. "Schwartz" was one 
of the hardest workers around and consistently made the Dean's 
and Supt's Lists. A German major, he was the ace of the Language 
Department. The big German was an avid sports fan, and if he 
wasn't studying, he could be found on the hard courts, the Softball 
diamond, or the handball courts. The word was that a Plebe never 
Stumped him on a sports question in three years. Schwartz was 
also widely known for his monkey business at professional lec- 
tures. Moderation and June Week will also take on special meaning 
when linked with the name Schwarzenbach. If WVS maintains his 
dedication and willingness to work, he is bound to be a slugger in 


The Garden State has made a fine contribution to the Naval 
Academy and to the Navy in the form of a young and talented 
Swedish meatball, "the Sjos." Combining athletic prowess, good 
looks and an excellent mind. Nils met with instant success in all 
facets of Academy life. In addition to playing three years of 
varsity soccer, he managed to obtain Supt's List grades with great 
consistency. Nils has always been a high flier, particularly at party 
time, and thus took a keen interest in Navy Air. Devotion, a keen 
mind, and a quick wit have won him many close friends at our 
four year college. Having shown himself to be a top quality guy, 
he will leave his mark in the annals of the Naval Service. 


Jim calls Beaumont, Texas his home. His accent lets you 
believe him. Easy going and a Gentleman of the South, he was 
always willing to lend a classmate a hand. His presence has always 
been welcome on company football, basketball and Softball teams. 
Smitty also spent part of his time underwater with the Scuba 
Club. When he wasn't studying he could be found in front of the 
"tube" or up the road in Severna Park. Jim will be a decided asset 
to any wardroom he joins. 


P. T., as he's more commonly known to his classmates, hails 
from a service background. You can find his dad in the '42 Lucky 
Bag. Though he lives in McLean, Virginia, it is common knowledge 
his home is really considered in California. Southern California 
that is, which is reflected in his Spanish Club interest. Quite at 
home in the water, Pat attended Under Water Swimmers School in 
Key West. His qualification as scuba instructor helped earn him a 
position as treasurer of the Scuba Club. A member of the Plebe 
and varsity sailing teams he also spent time on the sailing Squad- 
ron. In the winter, when its too cold to swim or sail you'd find P. 
T. playing lightweight football . . . and waiting for spring. 


Alan came to the Academy from Chilton, Wisconsin where 
sports were his main interest. His sports interest has carried over 
but on a recreational level. After graduation, he plans to go Air, if 
his eyes remain good enough. Since attending the Academy he has 
developed an avid interest in all types of music, especially rhythm 
and blues. The Academy life has presented its problems, but with 
a never ending sense of humor he has managed to survive the hard 
times as well as the good times. 



Willy, as he came to be known, hailed from Brattleboro, 
Vermont and winter's cold. His terse and witty tongue makes him 
a good man with any group, or anybody. He adapted to Navy life 
rapidly, and even conquered the Dean's List while competing for 
rack time honors — an achievement any mid would be proud to 
claim. He quickly developed a love for the water which turned him 
to dinghy and ocean sailing and scuba diving. Always busy, he 
managed to be part of the Antiphonal Choir and hold down a 
position on the "animal squad" in company football. Being "The 
Best" is his by-word. Willy's quick and diligent mind will stand 
him in good stead in the future. 


Swinging out of the Indiana jungles as "Wints," as this former 
farmer is known, has kept his easygoing cool. Joining us straight 
from high school, Keith brought with him a penchant for unbe- 
lievable gadgetry and chemistry. Dividing his weekdays between 
his chem major and the pad oracle left him little slack time, but 
Sick-man was always able to rouse himself enough to take on the 
world in handball and track. Always interested in stopping the 
world on weekends, Wints created his own world and weekends 
would find him at home in the "wardroom" living and loving. The 
system never got to Keith, defeated by his friendly personality, 
and enormous extraction factor. The Navy has nothing to offer 
Keith but success. 


Coming to the Academy from the collegiate atmosphere of 
Champaign, Illinois, it was only natural that Woody would turn 
out to be a real college guy. He might be one of the first graduates 
to get through without ever finding a barber shop in the basement. 
After running of the Plebe cross country team, John decided to 
follow the call of the good life and the intramural sports teams 
benefitted from his athletic abilities. No slouch with the books. 
Woody was constantly on the Dean's List. Despite the fact that he 
spent innumerable hours in the pad. Always with a good word for 
everybody, Woody made friends easily and will undoubtedly be a 
success at whatever he does. 


David arrived at Canoe U. with a Navy background and a wide 
variety of "home ports." His quick tongue, wide vocabulary and 
every-present cackle won "Little Allen" many friends quickly. A 
long afternoon and a flying Cornish hen landed Dave many moons 
at the battalion office during the early rounds of Youngster year. 
Always being surrounded by a bevy of beauties of various degrees 
brought "Boltarr" many problems along with many conquests of 
the fairer sex. A well known figure in many academic departments 
here at Navy, David came close but never a cigar for excellence in 
this phase of Academy life. David will have no trouble carving a 
place for himself in the fleet, as I'm sure he will be followed by 
fair winds wherever he goes.

The Sixty-niners started Plebe year under the able guidance of the 
Gay Third. That year an all Plebe slow pitch softball team swept the 
regiments. Youngster year we become known as the "transient" 
company. We were losing guys as fast as they were shipping them in. 
We were also the brightest third class in the Brigade. Just look in the 
sixty-seven yearbook to prove this point. The next year we migrated 
to the Twenty-seventh company and led the Brigade in demerits and 
black n's. Beauty and the Beast tried to make beautiful music at the 
Ring Dip. We inherited the motto "PARVUS SLACKUS IT LONGO 
VIA" in September and have plugged and chugged along ever since. 
We even won a parade — much to everyone's surprise. We threw some 
great Vat parties and we hope that the underclass will carry on this

A native of Cumberland, Maryland, Kent came to the Naval 
Academy after graduation from NAPS and two years' active duty 
in the Fleet. With a major in Aeronautical Engineering, Kent 
always has been an outstanding student, appearing regularly on the 
Supt's and Dean's Lists. As well as demonstrating proficiency in 
academics, Kent has more than proved himself on the varsity 
squash, plebe tennis and Plebe crosscountry teams. Kent's matur- 
ity and poise and willingness to work hard should stand him in 
good stead as an officer in the Navy. 


Coming from a Marine family Bill traveled a lot before settling 
down at Navy, but he claims his allegiance to the Corps, the South 
and the "Pad." After battling the Physics Department both 
Youngster and second class year, he decided that his true academic 
capabilities lay in the Bull Department, where the tutelage of 
Walter Wart and his "Theory on Frigits, Bwoniks, and Fwine Outs" 
inspired Bill through many a term paper season. As aSegundohe 
lettered during both the Fall and Spring seasons with the Execu- 
tive Department and could be seen many a weekend standing 
proudly before the main office. Wherever there was a party 
"Arbs" would usually make the scene and add a certain spark that 
will surely bring him a very happy and successful future. 


Hailing from the thriving metropolis of McMlnnville, Oregon, 
"Brix" was a welcome addition to any group and made friends 
quickly and easily with nearly everyone. During Plebe and 
Youngster years he could often be found out on the Severn, 
pulling an oar for the heavyweight crew team. If he wasn't there 
you could look wherever a good time was to be had and usually 
find him. Muhlmeister's Ice Cream Parlor was probably his favorite 
Annapolis hangout. His determiniation and ability to do what 
needs to be done will prove to be a great asset to Brix and will 
Insure his success as an officer, and his personality will ensure his 
success as an individual. 



A broad smile could not disguise the determination for excel- 
lence that characterized Stan. "Brant" always made efficient use 
of his time at the Academy whether or not the bull sessions came 
before or after hitting the books. The Engineering Department 
proved no obstacle to him and his name was often found on either 
the Supt's or Dean's List. And who couldn't like a guy who would 
lose 35 pounds to play 150 lb. football and still remain the tough 
competitor that he always was. Weekends were Stan's favorite, 
probably a habit left over from his high school days at Grosse 
Pointe University School and a year of hard socializing at Wayne 
State University. The officer corps is receiving a man of whom it 
will be proud. 


Joe came to the shores of the Severn by way of Abilene, Texas. 
With him he brought athletic skills that made him a standout on 
many a company sports team. He even found time to letter on the 
Plebe fencing team. The classroom is no exception to Joe's story 
of achievement as he was a regular member of the Supt's and 
Dean's Lists. Despite this feat he never lost his love for the pad. 
When not otherwise occupied, Joe was usually found reading 
anything from cereal box tops to the latest novels. Never one to be 
satisfied with anything but the best, Joe's determination and 
perseverance will guarantee him the realization of any goal upon 
which he sets his sights. 



Pete came to the Academy without any idea of what he was 
getting himself into, but quickly adjusted to Plebe year and 
survived its terror with the knowledge that Youngster Year would 
be spent in the pad. Chals could be found during any given study 
hour discussing vital issues such as sports, girls and parties. Despite 
his lack of study, Pete's QPR was consistently over 3.0. The only 
course ever to give Chals any difficulty was "OOW— ESCAPE AND 
EVASION," but he could often be found getting El on weekends 
at the Main Office. Pete has had a unique history with the dollies, 
and many of his exploits are known brigade-wide. Pete's avid 
dedication, undying spirit, and outstanding professionalism will 
reap great dividends for him in the Naval Service. 


A Navy Junior who graduated from Woodrow Wilson High 
School in Portsmouth, Virginia, Chris now calls Annapolis home. 
Devoting much of his time to debate, he is one of the few men to 
beat Army and not get an N star. Chris' competitive spirit never 
faltered whether in the stands or on the playing field. He was a 
member of a regimental champion softball team and the batt 
rugby team. Chris never found academics too difficult and helped 
many classmates pull through. As fortunate with the fairer sex as 
he was with academics, Chris' warm personality and quick wit 
surrounded him with female companionship. His determination 
and sound judgment will insure him success throughout his career. 


A Navy junior, George came to the shores of the Chesapeake 
after graduating from Centennial High School in Portland, Oregon. 
Getting off to a good start Plebe year, George tried to win the 
favor of his summer squad leader by offering his grandmother as a 
blind date. George, like most mids, was never one to let academics 
come between him and the pad. In spite of his many hours doing 
battle with the pad monster, he consistently maintained a good 
average. Always an enthusiastic participant in sports, George had 
positions on the company softball and fieldball teams well 
anchored. No matter what branch he chooses, George's competi- 
tive nature, determination, and perseverance leave little doubt as 
to his future success. 


Bob liked the transition from high school in Solomons, Mary- 
land (a small fishing village on the banks of the Chesapeake! so 
well that he decided to cram the usual four year program into five. 
Plebe year Bob rowed in the boat that won the national freshmen 
crew championship. "Garns" was one of the four whose motto, 
"Yeah, but I won't get you back" led to many an eventful study 
hour. Bob had the knack of raising havoc anywhere and anytime, 
but when there was a job to be done, he would do it. With his 
ability to gain the respect and admiration of his men. Bob will 
make an outstanding officer and gentleman. 


The Gitch came to USNA from the pride of the foothills, 
Glendora, California. A former NROTC student at Iowa State 
University, he is one of the few to repeat Youngster Cruise. As a 
youngster he won the title of "king of the pad," and has con- 
tinued to uphold this claim. Never one to be found with his nose 
in a textbook, his studies were matched only by his swimming 
ability. Avoiding haircuts and company officers were his major 
sports, but he also found time to indulge in company lightweights, 
slow pitch softball, and varsity football manager. Les can always 
be found with a smile on his face and more often than not, it is an 
indication of California dreaming. 


Jim, known to his close friends as "J. D." or "Harrassment," 
came to Crabtown from the sunny South Shore beaches of Long 
Island. After a brief bout with Ops Analysis, Jim set up home in 
Maury Hall and "shoveled" his way through the next three years. 
During term paper season he could be found laboring until reveille 
under the inspirational guidance of Walter Wart. Whenever there 
was a party, Jim always helped start and finish the fun and the 
"vat" with a smile. From Fire Island to the Bloomington Cam- 
paign, Jim had but one end in sight and it appears certain he has 
succeeded. With his drive and determination to excel, coupled 
with his very likeable ways, Jim is assured of happiness and success 
in the years ahead. 


"Johns" hails from Farmington, Michigan. He is probably the 
most devoted man in our class— to anything and everything. There 
weren't enough hours in the day to complete all of his activities or 
find new ones. Nothing passed his attention unnoticed or unacted 
upon. Always one with girl problems, Jim managed to have two 
dates for June Week Plebe year and then struck out seven times 
Youngster year. Although Jim was a capable basketball player, he 
was asked to hang up his sneakers to manage the varsity team First 
Class year. He can always be depended on to do an outstanding 
job in any task he undertakes. If he ever decides on his service 
selection, he will make an outstanding Naval Officer. 


Tired of academics after high school, "E. J." spent two years as 
a salmon fisherman off the California coast before coming to 
USNA. Leaving his home on easy street in Alamo, California, he 
adjusted well to life at the Academy. His quick wit and humor 
made him the life of all the company parties. As the social director 
of the company, he filled and emptied many a good vat. As a 
member of the varsity track team, Ed divided his time between the 
high jump pit and the pad, but still found time to make Supt's List 
as a foreign language minor. Ed's love of the sea has always been 
evident, and he looks forward to his first command. 


Hailing from Cleveland, Mississippi, population 10,000 (in- 
cluding dogs and cats), Eddie quickly got the big picture and 
skated through Plebe year demonstrating his ability to become 
scarce when necessary. Very active in athletics, Ed played for 
various Navy varsity squads, including the infamous "Weems 
Creekers." "Champagne Eddie", one of the most amiable guys to 
come to Navy, was quite the socialite, outgoing, always looking 
for a good party and a girl who could keep up with him. Winner of 
the company brick two times running, he did have his social 
setbacks, but always took it like a true southern gentlemen. This 
same winning combination of personality and determination will 
carry Eddie far in whatever field he chooses to follow. 


Bill came to USNA from Yorktown High School in Arlington, 
Virginia, but now calls New Orleans his home. The son of a Navy 
captain, he has salt water in his veins, and spends his afternoons 
sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. Second Class year Bill was recog- 
nized as a hero for his part in blowing up the Electrical Science 
Lab. First Class summer his love for the sea was demonstrated 
when he took the longest cruise with the least liberty. Although 
professionally oriented. Bill showed his athletic ability on the 
company field ball team. The Navy can look forward to years of 
service from this dedicated individual. 


Bob could always be distinguished by his wrinkled skin because 
of the hours he spent in the pool. His swimming prowess always 
earned him post-season trips to the Easterns and the Nationals and 
eased many "freshman" year pressures. Between numerous study 
breaks, "Rocket" took his Aerospace curriculum seriously and was 
always determined to make good grades in spite of his ever present 
overload. St. Joseph's Prep, in his hometown of Philadelphia, was 
where he spent his last pre-Academy days. It was always hard for 
him to have anything but a good time — all the time — and his 
friendly outgoing personality always rubbed off on those around 
him. Rocket will be an asset to and a fine representative of the 
Navy wherever he goes. 



Bill came to us by way of the fleet and NAPS. Hailing from the 
great Midwest, this Ohio boy brought with him a smile and a 
cheerfulness that makes him a great friend to have in any situa- 
tion. A strong desire to do his best in everything he does has led 
him to excel as a member of the wrestling team and to do well in 
academics. Bill's great competitive spirit will stand him in good 
stead as a wearer of the green. Bill's outstanding character and 
willingness to work will continue to make him friends and will 
carry him through life and a service career as well as it has carried 
him here at the Academy. 


"Twigs" came to Navy from booming New Britain, Connec- 
ticut labeled for the Navy soccer team. After tending the goal for 
three years he changed his sport from catching soccer balls to 
catching Z's and rarely missed a workout. Aware of the profes- 
sional importance of a naval officer's eyesight, George carefully 
avoided the visual strains of textbooks during the evening hours. 
His weekends were sporadically planned but always well spent, 
earning him the privilege of lettering with the Executive Depart- 
ment. Whether you wanted "a little off the top" for Saturday 
noon, a "hardcore" party man or just a friendly ear Twigs could 
always help you out. George's ambition is to be a jet pilot and 
he'll be one of the best. 


"Thatch" flew straight from high school into Canoe U. ready to 
get to the real man's business of flying, "Thatch" surmounted every 
obstacle Plebe Year maintaining his personal dignity to the end. 
Youngetsr Year found Rusty launching a strike against 
the Aerospace Department where he met with heavy fire. He 
fought hard securing the academic front, and his famous "I've 
been working too hard lately" was prelude to many a Z sessions. A 
true sportsman and gentleman R. C. worked hard on the athletic 
fields and the fields of social endeavor. He was always ready for a 
good party and a hot date. Rusty 's determination and his ability 
to get the job done will make him one of the Navy's finest. 


A typically well traveled Navy junior, Larry came to Canoe U. 
from his present home in Alexandria, Virginia. Larry validated 
Plebe year in the hospital after breaking his ankle in a firstie-plebe 
football game. His academic interests centered around Inter- 
national Relations in the Bull Department while at the same time 
foiling the plots of his arch enemy, the Skinny Department. Aside 
from academics, Larry's athletic prowess made him a valuable 
asset to the battalion swimming and water polo teams. "Thomps" 
was one of the company lovers and changed girls each Fall, Winter 
and Spring set. Larry's enthusiasm, determination and drive to be 
on the top of everything will carry him far in the Naval Service. 


Jerry came to Navy from the resort town of Hayward, Wiscon- 
sin. While in high school he exceled in all forms of athletics, and at 
the Academy he put his ability to good use on the company's 
intramural teams. He also found a place on the varsity rifle team. 
Although never aspiring to be a scholar, Jerry managed to keep his 
marks high with little if any effort. Study hours invariably found 
him visiting with his classmates. When not engaged in important 
activities, he was usually found in the clutches of the "Pad 
Monster," who seemed to have a particular liking for this mid. 
Jerry's wit and ability to get along with people will assure him of 
future success. 


"Wrobs" now calls the sunshine state home, but he has seen 
most of the states and Japan. An Air Force junior, he decided to 
switch to the better branch by coming to USNA. In the Fall and 
Spring, Rick can be seen beating golf balls around the course 
effectively enough to keep himself out of p-rades. He has a strong 
affinity for anything that flies, especially airline stewardesses and 
good parties. Although he has no Indian ancestry, he has often 
been mistaken for a large bronze statue at the end of Stribling 
Walk, and is truly associated with the 2.0. Without an academic 
hindrance. Rick will go far in his chosen field.

"Live and let live" was our motto and, unless our own liberty was 
threatened, the underclass enjoyed a free reign during our First Class 
year. Company Officers were never a problem. As long as it was in the 
reg book, things were O.K. Unfortunately, pin-ups and other such 
non-professional things were not "in" and we enjoyed the dubious 
distinction of living in the most virtuous rooms in Bancroft. The 
biggest shock of the four years was the move from the happy-go-lucky 
First Batt. to the fouled-up Fifth. Many offgoing MCBO's were known 
to retreat to their pads, breathing a prayer of thanks that they had 
escaped with only the "customary" 10 demos. 

There have been many incidents during our years. Too numerous 
to recount, they will be remembered by those to whom they are im- 
portant and used as the basis for stories of officer's clubs around the

LT J. M. Butler, USN 



Troy, New Hampshire claims Bob as a native son. The Academy 
was rocked back on its traditions when "Boober" arrived in a 
"cah" which he "pahked" somewhere to become one of the 
youngest plebe's in the class. Although Bob never shaved seriously 
in his entire four years, he did everything else in and out of the 
regulations and never suffered a dull moment. A natural athlete, 
Bob contributed his talents to sports, exceling at lightweight 
football and Softball. With an innate ability to turn even the worst 
situations to his advantage, Bob's guaranteed an interesting and 
colorful life. 


Coming in from the West to place his mark on the East and the 
Academy, Shelly has done an outstanding job. He Is a friend of all 
and always willing to go out of his way to help others. He had to 
overcome shortness of stature to gain his starting berth on the 
football team and climaxed second class year football season with 
a sensational leaping Interception against ARMY enroute to 
winning his N*. The spring and winter found him chasing a javelin 
out on Thompson Field, being Navy's best javelin thrower. His 
sports prowess and personality led him to be elected President of 
the "N" Club. The little "Big Snowman" will find happiness and 
success in all further endeavors. 


Mike came to Navy via a long year at Bullis Prep. The only son 
of North Plainfield, New Jersey to venture along this path in many 
years, he was recruited for the track team as a pole vaulter. Mike's 
luck held out for his first two years with the Executive Depart- 
ment. Then came second class year and literally hundreds of trips 
to the main office as a member of the varsity restriction squad. 
Prone to let things go until the last minutes, Mike fought a long 
hard battle with the various academic departments at Navy, and 
Invariably, finals brought with them many sleepless nights. But 
men, like bullets go farthest when smoothest, and the fleet will 
surely welcome this one with open arms. 


Fowls came to USNA as a Navy junior and dove right Into the 
spartan military life with an enthusiasm that lasted nearly twenty 
minutes. After that, he lived for sailing and tried not to let 
academics get in his way. No coincidence were his initials, T. V. 
He had a magic touch with our tube and succeeded where others 
failed. Fowls strove to bring a more relaxed atmosphere to USNA, 
particularly during his free periods and managed to wear out six 
bedspreads during his four year tenure. Thus began the legend of 
Rip Van Fowler. All kidding aside, his interest in the Navy and 
desire to do a good job will take him far in the officer corps. 


A true southern gentleman, Steve came to USNA from the 
heart of Dixieland — Anderson, South Carolina. Steve was fast to 
adapt to his northern home as he rapidly became the outstanding 
distance runner In our class. An academic slash, first semester 
plebe year saw Steve don gold stars and he continued to maintain 
his mastery over the academic department for four years. First 
class year saw Steve as captain of the Navy cross country team 
and, as always, a vital member of the Indoor and outdoor track 
teams. Academic stars weren't enough for Steve as his tremendous 
desire earned him the coveted gold "N" star for victory over 


Although It took him a year at Colorado University, another In 
the fleet and still a third at NAPS, Jay finally found his way to 
USNA. His vast experiences proved invaluable to both him and his 
classmates. Never was there a problem too large or too small that 
he was not willing and able to help others tackle. While a slash at 
the epee, a star on the Brigade championship volleyball team, and 
a standout shot putter for batt track. Jay could always be found 
curled up with a good book. As he joins the long blue line. Jay's 
effluent personality and natural leadership are sure to guide him to 
a sparkling career. 




Coming to USNA with a great love of sports, "Ski" soon 
showed his abilities in J. V. football and as a star of the battalion 
handball team. A firm believer in the philosophy that a well rested 
mind learns more, Bryan could be found diligently preparing for 
class every first period. Despite his losing battles with the "pad 
monster," Bryan still proved himself an able student of manage- 
ment. In his earlier years Bryan also showed his abilities in Bull 
and was widely acclaimed as the "Poolie Poet Laureate". Bryan 
always tried to bring humor into the bleak lives of his many 
friends and sometimes succeeded. Bryan's willingness to help 
others and to assume responsibility should bring him success in all 

"^^"'^^^^°" RONALD JADLOCKl 

"Jads" came to the Academy from Pennsylvania after spending 
one year at Slippery Rock State College. A quiet personality and 
natural good humor carried Ron easily through the shock of 
become a plebe, the drudgery of younsterhood, and the impa- 
tience of second and first class years. He had a pretty practical 
outlook on the Academy and military life in general and was 
sometimes baffled by the Navy way but almost always managed to 
work things out to his advantage. A champion wrestler before his 
Academy days, Ron spent many hours in the loft making things 
tough for his competition. The same determination and competi- 
tiveness which served him so well at the Academy in sports and 
academics should guarantee Ron a fruitful career. 


The Crimson Tide lost one of its most devoted sons when 
Ketch decided to begin his self-imposed imprisonment behind the 
cheerful grey walls of the Academy. Scott undoubtedly broke 
more than his share of young female hearts while at the Academy. 
The local lasses never had a chance with the Ketch, however, due 
to a O. A. O. back in BAMA. Athletically Scott was a plebe 
pitcher and a regular on the company football and soccer teams. 
While spending endless hours teaching his roommate the mys- 
teries of electrical science, Scott still managed to regularly place 
his name on the Supt's List. Scott's genuine sense of humor and 
easygoing disposition will undoubtedly aid him m becoming the 

finest of officers. _ 


A Steelton, Pennsylvania boy. Bob has decidly established 
himself as a man of action. Whether on the athletic field, in the 
classroom, or at an Army-Navy game party Bob could always be 
counted on to be in the middle of the action. A fierce competitor, 
he was known for his prowess on the rugby and football fields. As 
a student Bob was renowned for hitting the rack, without first 
hitting the books, and still achieving an academic standing far 
above the rest of us. As for his social life, nobody has ever inferred 
that Bob has been associated with a dull time. Bob will always be 
known to his many friends by both his cheerful, unselfish outlook 
on life and his keen sense of humor. Bob will undoubtedly typify 
the very finest officer in the Naval Service. 


"Knubes" came to the Academy from Oradell, New Jersey and 
wasted little time in making his presence felt at the "Trade 
School." Known for his academic prowess, especially in Ocean- 
ography, Jim wore stars, which he was always giving away to any 
girl who would take them. Although gangly in appearance, he was 
one of the toughest competitors on the company soccer and 
fieldball teams. His passions in life are hunting, sleeping and girls 
and he tried to get as much as possible of each. Although he was a 
licensed private pilot, Jim earned the distinguished title of "Wrong 
Way Knubel" for landing the wrong way twice in his souped-up 
Piper Cub. It is evident that the Academy's loss will be the Navy's 


Pat, also known as "Jimbo" came to the Naval Academy 
straight from the Kansas wheat fields. Pat never had much trouble 
with academics and his name often appeared on the Supt's List. 
His big downfall seemed to be those big gray boats. He always 
kept up to date on sports and his skill at athletics was a big help in 
batt. football, company soccer and Softball. Pat couldn't work 
hard all the time and when he wasn't working he was either having 
a blast or sound asleep. He always made friends wherever he went. 
Pat will be a success no matter what career he decides on. 



Craig arrived at Navy from the fair state of Arkansas and 
proved himself to be the model Southern gentleman. Never failing 
to elicit a laugh from the boys, he continually amazed everyone 
with his silver tongued eloquence. After journeying to Japan 
during his second class summer he returned to Crabtown with an 
eager desire to slash out with the books and found himself once 
again in a running battle with the executive department and an 
extended tour of TAD at the main office for many weekends. He 
was a well-known man in the Naval Science Department's manage- 
ment committees and was always able to manage his own affairs 
with equal aplomb. The Academy's loss will be the Navy's gain 
when Craig joins the fleet upon graduation. 


Greg comes from the home of the football Hall of Fame, 
Canton, Ohio. Running headlong into a "dull" Plebe year, his 
fondest remembrance is developing his puny 210 pound body into 
a muscular 155 pound frame. On the athletic side Gregor devel- 
oped interests in intramural soccer, football and the old reliable — 
slow pitch. Meeting conditioning requirements was no problem 
since he considered a rested athlete an asset to his team, and many 
hours were spent pursuing this philosophy. Among his interests 
were numerous parties on Saturday nights, and the evenings spent 
on Church Circle, developing a bad case of fallen arches. Wherever 
Greg's career may lead the Navy will find an amiable and capable 
gentleman ready to excel. 


Navy discovered Mitch out West in Utah, happily skiing the 
trails and hiking the unexplored grottoes of the Rockies. It took 
some doing to persuade him to trade Weejuns and cutoffs for more 
conservative and less spectacular surroundings. Once the change 
was made, however, Mitch determined to excel. He managed 
Supt's List with ease — despite a voluminous correspondence that 
must have included half the western United States. He devoted his 
free time and organizational abilities to our championship soccer 
teams as capable manager. His easy going and carefree nature 
helped him endure the disbelief of his classmates, who couldn't 
quite accept his seemingly natural innocence. Mitch seems to have 
a natural flair for just about everything. 


Bruce was really a Texas cowboy at heart and never missed a 
chance to let all his dude friends know what things were like in 
God's country. Since calf roping and bronc bustin' weren't offered 
as part of the Academy sports program, "Potts" made do with 
varsity football and JayVee basketball — winning his N-star in 
Philadelphia during second class year. With a quiet, easy going 
outlook and a heart as big as a Stetson hat, Bruce never could run 
plebes. How many times did we hear "Hey you, carry on," and 
know the big Texan was somewhere close by. Four years of 
Academy life failed to change Bruce's philosophy of live and let 
live. It just convinced him that it was the only philosophy to have. 


Born in the beautiful city of Maracaibo, Tito came to Navy 
from the Venezuelan Naval Academy. After finishing two years 
there he was chosen to be his country's representative at USNA. 
After mastering English at an astonishing rate, he went on to 
attain the Supt's List for several semesters. Soon he demonstrated 
his powers in athletics by excelling in the Plebe gymnastic team. 
Tito's main interest being girls, he maintained a record as a true 
Latin lover helped by his natural aptitude for singing. Well liked 
by everyone who knows him he will undoubtedly be a great asset 
to the Venezuelan Navy and a classmate who won't soon be 



Rich left Razorback land to become one of the outstanding 
leaders at the Academy. His easy going attitude and his flair for 
positive leadership found the responsibilities of command thrust 
upon him. Rich accepted the challenge and did his job well. 
Athletically, he and his roommate formed the toughest pair of 
defensive ends that the lightweights had ever seen. The spring 
found him running for the battalion track team. Academically he 
was a bull slash — spending hours pouring over history books 
(anything to keep him away from a slide rule). Rich is a credit to 
the Brigade and can only reflect greater credit upon the officer 
corps of the Naval Service. 


Mike came to the Academy from the bourbon state, Kentucky, 
already possessing of the primary attributes necessary for a naval 
career. A willingness to serve and a great affinity for travel. 
Through his roommate, and his ability in Spanish, Mike has 
developed an active interest in South America. On the "fields of 
friendly strife" you can find Mike driving for two with the batt 
basketball team, while in the spring his interests turn to 40-love 
and tennis. None of his activities deter him from ardently pursuing 
his Physics minor. Second class summer, Pensacola worked its 
magic and gained a flying enthusiast. His willingness to serve and 
marked ability will soon distinguish Mike as a fine officer and an 
asset to the Naval Service. 


Mike came to the Naval Academy after spending a year at the 
University of Oklahoma. Mike has spent many long hard hours 
studying, and his efforts did not go unrewarded. Mike not only 
completed his major in Mechanical Engineering, but also was 
selected for the Trident Scholar Program, thereby achieving a goal 
second only to graduating and receiving his commission. Despite 
his continuous drive to attain a 4.0, Mike has found plenty of time 
to devote to athletics. Mike has participated in Brigade boxing and 
was a member of the Sailing Squadron. He was a member of the 
Scuba Club. A quiet but sincere midshipman, Mike will definitely 
grace the ranks of any field which he might choose for his career. 


Dave came a hard charger, fresh from the reserves. His know- 
ledge of the Navy served him and his classmates well Plebe year. 
Even now he could tell a bow from a stern, no matter how far 
away she was. The undisputed trivia champion, he foiled many a 
Plebe looking for easy carry on. Weekends usually found Dave at 
Chris' getting a sub — or in the fourth wing basement coversing 
with the coke machines. Dave wasn't what one would call a high 
striper in company, but three years running he was the swimming 
sub squad five striper. Dave's service desires have always been 
known, but down or up he will be a credit to the Navy and our 


Massapequa Park, New York, is the proud hometown of this 
carefree, easy-going midshipman. Denis always has a cheerful smile 
and a good word for everybody. Always willing to try a new sport, 
Denis lists basketball and baseball as his favorites. He was quick to 
show his athletic abilities, lettering in baseball his sophomore year. 
Since then he has been in somewhat of a baseball slump, but he 
has had no other problems. Denis is the average ail-American boy 
even to the point of maintaining a perfect C-average throughout 
his four years at the Academy. But his ability to win friends is far 
above average and he will always be a popular fellow and succeed 
in whatever he chooses to do. 


Al came to the Academy from Pennsylvania and immediately 
noticed the difference between Navy and his former coed, alma 
mater in West Chester. While successfully majoring in Politics and 
Economics you'd rarely find Al burled in his books, but it does 
explain his interest in the Wall Street Journal. Youngster year he 
discovered rugby and finding it well suited to his taste, he 
distinguished himself in many scrums during the ensuing years. 
While complaining of poor vision, it never stopped him from 
finding attractive feminine companions. With his love for world 
travel, and the enthusiasm so characterictic of him, Al should find 
much success in the Naval Service.

29th company, EUNDO NO LOCO CELERITER (going nowhere

biggest move we made was to 5th Battalion and a year with Matt 
made it well worth the effort. Our bit of wisdom is, "If you drink, 
don't drive, if you do both, stay out of peoples front yards." Never 
big, in fact, one of the smallest companies in the Brigade, we will 
always remember: a friendly company officer "Gentlemen, there will 
be no mickey mouse in this company and I won't play cops and 
robbers." Sure, Steve! or the second class who packed up and walked 
out in the middle of the week; and the first class who saw the new 
attitude of the academic board first hand. Not all our losses were

LTS. M. Ferencie, USN 



Ron, a product of Greensboro, North Carolina, came to the 
Naval Academy after attending a year at the University of North 
Carolina at Greensboro. A Southerner of the finest tradition — 
Ron was perhaps not the most intellectual midshipman, but he 
was one of the liveliest. Anytime anything was going on you could 
always be sure he was right in the middle of it. His good nature 
and quick wit will surely keep him well remembered wherever he 


Norm comes to the Academy from Providence, Rhode Island. 
Upon entering. Norm soon realized that Plebe summer was not 
like his old high school days, but he managed to conform to the 
demands placed upon him. His smiling face and outward per- 
sonality have won him many friends throughout the Brigade. 
Active in the "Log" magazine for three years. Norm was managing 
editor in his first class year. He has been a great help to many for 
spiritual needs, taking an active part in the Christian life. He can 
be found regularly at OCU, NACA and the daily meditations in 
the Chapel. Whatever field Norm decides to follow, he will make a 
great contribution to the Naval Service. 


The Naval Academy has produced many men whose success has 
seemed predetermined, however, no graduate has had Brad's 
intrinsic capacity for success. Coming from humble origins in the 
backwoods of Idaho, Brad's hard, persistent drive has catapulted 
him into a position admired by his classmates. Often told to slow 
down and take life easy, Brad would have none of it. His intense 
motivation and ambition have appeared in everything he has done 
from sports to academics. He has anchored company soccer, 
basketball and Softball teams through four glorious years. Brad can 
often be seen working until the wee hours of the morning, 
polishing shoes and keeping his Supt's List grades up. 


Mike, being a Navy Junior, is at home in almost any state, 
though he prefers to call California his home. Mike arrived at the 
Naval Academy six days late. After getting a late appointment but 
lost no time in catching up with his classmates. It was strenuous at 
times, but he made it. It was soon evident that he is very 
parctically minded, as is demonstrated by his ability to build 
electronic equipment, even though he has trouble with the theory 
involved in Electrical Engineering. As is evident, one of his favorite 
hobbies is stereo equipment, and he always keeps up with the 
latest music. Mike is very well-rounded and will encounter no real 
problems in his Naval career. 


Tom came to the Academy after a year of college and two 
years in the USMC. These extra years were of great aid to him in 
gaining maturity, a diverse background, and a knowledge of the 
more worldly areas. Perhaps Tom's greatest accomplishment was 
that he got a 2.0. Academics were certainly not his forte but if 
sweat and desire are any criteria he was 4.0. Though always up for 
a good time — any time, any place; he also enjoyed discussions on 
any subject and the simple pleasures of life and nature. Tom's 
greatest ability lies in leadership and a great interest and know- 
ledge of people. With this ability and his diverse character, success 
in whatever he pursues is assured. 



Fred, a Navy junior, came to the Naval Academy from Pearl 
Harbor, Hawaii, but could claim almost anywhere as home. A firm 
believer in the finer things in life, Fred could always find out 
where things were happening. Of course, academics and regula- 
tions weren't things to hamper Fred's style, as can be shown by his 
overwhelming QPR and the many weekends at restriction musters. 
At other times you would most likely find him studying for his 
Math minor, participating in company or battalion sports, or else 
hard at work relaxing and reading his "technical books." Fred's 
winning smile, good natured personality and determination will 
make him an outstanding naval officer. 


Coming to the Naval Academy from a top-notch private school 
in New Orleans, Bob immediately assumed the role of company 
poet laureate and cultural expert. Known to frequently burn the 
midnight oil in quest of new approaches to electrical science. Bob 
is always willing to use his analog computer-like mind to help 
anyone with an academic problem. A leader from the beginning, 
"Hincks" is well liked and respected by everyone. "A hard 
charger!", "Born with salt water in his blood." and "lightning fast 
on the maneuvering board" are just a few of the admiring 
comments made about Bob. He has skippered the company 
knockabout team to three years of victory. A Sunday school 
teacher for three years. Bob has hopes of eventually becoming a 


Steve came to USNA from Gowanda, New York, a small town 
near Buffalo. Straight from high school, he took immediately to 
the Academy life. His academics have always been well above the 
average. He has played too in the Concert Band and NA-10 along 
with D & B for his first two years, thereafter concentrating 
entirely on the D & B. His other activities have included active 
participation in the Officers' Christian Union and NACA. Steve 
probably is one of the best liked men at the Academy. His 
constantly bright smile under that mop of strawberry-blonde hair 
will be missed by many. No matter what branch he chooses he will 
be a fine officer. 


Jim, or Lee as he is better known, came to the Academy from 
Greensboro, North Carolina, Lee is a very avid sports fan, 
especially basketball in which he excelled playing for his company 
team. Academics come very easily to Lee which makes it con- 
venient, so he can spend more time enjoying what is most dear to 
him, playing his soul guitar. Never one to turn down a favor, Lee 
goes out of his way to help a friend or a classmate. After 
graduation Lee would like to go Navy Air.

After leading an exemplary life in high school. Rock migrated 
to the Academy from Monroeville, Pennsylvania. He is renowned 
for his phenomenal luck and his bouts with the academic de- 
partments. His musical tastes in the light classics (Country West- 
ern) have always been the talk of the company. Rock is perhaps 
one of 69's most easy-going and jovial members. His good spirits 
and carefree attitude are the envy of everyone. His freindly 
bearing, however, is lost on the athletic field where he becomes a 
fierce competitor. Of outstandingly strong athletic prowess, his 
tremendous drive, natural intelligence, and individuality will assure 
him of a very successful career. 


"Ski" came to the Academy after two years in the Navy with a 
great deal of native intelligence and common sense. Academics 
were never any problem for him (just remember F=ma") and he 
breezed through with a minimum of effort or organization. 
Applying skills acquired in childhood. Ski fought both Batts and 
Brigades and well upheld the reputation of Shamokin, Penn- 
sylvania. Rarely seen without a cigarette. Ski was aslo undisputed 
coffee drinking champ. In his earlier years he was quite a mover 
but this came to a screeching halt after 3/c year. Being an 
ex-submariner, anyway, and not known for his sense of direction 
(as evidenced by one night in Philadelphia) Ski should have a 
promising tour on the boats. 


During his tenure at USNA, "Moose" excelled in every aspect 
of his education — academics, sports and aptitude. He has 
distinguished himself as hard worker in all of his endeavors. Jim 
was always willing to help a friend, as was evidenced by the well 
worn path to his desk during study hour. His excellence carried 
into athletics as well. He has been a top man on the Brigade 
boxing team for four years and always right in there helping those 
company sports. Moose's fine achievement and easygoing per- 
sonality have gained him the friendship and respect of all those 
who knew him. He will surely be a welcome asset to the Navy and 
to all who are associated with him. 


Jim came to the Naval Academy from Canton, Ohio. Jim 
wasted no time in giving the academic departments a good 
working over by gaining his stars right off, which he has kept right 
along. In order to keep himself from becoming bored with the 
easy academics, Jim joined the Chapel Choir, the Glee Club, the 
NA-10 and the Concert Band besides being a member of Sigma Pi 
Sigma. During the afternoon, Jim could be found playing com- 
pany Softball, football, soccer or volleyball, along with his favorite 
sport of girl watching. Jim will go a long way in the Silent Service 
or any louder one he gets into. 


After four years of outstanding performances in academics at 
Derry Area High School in Pennsylvania, Skip came to the Naval 
Academy eager to pursue these paths of excellence. His grades 
began to climb as he spent many late hours pouring over his Aero 
books. Athletically, Skip was one of the permanent fixtures in the 
weightroom and rounded out his program with Plebe and J.V. 
football, company softball and volleyball. It soon became evident 
that as hard as Chok worked, he still knew how to relax on 
weekends. His determination, dedication and straightforwardness 
will surely make him a leader of men and a definite asset to the 




Mike came to the Academy from Camp Pendleton, California, 
where his father was a Navy dentist. Plebe year was no real 
problem for Mike and seemed not to interfere with his studies. 
The grades he received were amazing when the Math courses he 
took are considered. Mike has gotten many thanks from everyone 
he has helped in academics. As for athletics, he once proved his 
great daring and skill in skiing to a group of friends and will also 
be remembered for being probably the heaviest man on the 
lightweight football team. Last, but certainly not least, Mike was a 
definite Davy Crockett. Who else would stay up until two in the 
morning tying fishing flies? 


Hud came to USNA from Hudson, Ohio. He found no problems 
with Plebe year and even found enough time to help his "boss" 
earn enough money to get married. Never one to become worried 
over academics. Hud's favorite place was on the athletic field. He 
hardly missed playing a single sport and was a valuable player in 
them all. Always friendly and outgoing. Hud easily became one of 
the most popular men in the company. Hud was always ready for 
a good stunt and organized more than his share ot them. Naval 
professionalism came easy to him and navigation and seamanship 
were enjoyable games. Ready for anything, and a born leader. Bob 
will be a valued addition to the fleet. 


Ob's hails from nearby Baltimore where two years in the Naval 
Reserves was not enough Navy for him. He pursued his Navy ways 
still further and after one unsuccessful attempt found his way to 
Annapolis with the Class of '69. A sailor's sailor. Spring and Fall 
afternoons would find him participating in his one true joy, sailing 
with the ocean racing division of the Sailing Squadron. While never 
working excessively hard, he was always able to get the job done 
and done well. This ability along with a desire to do should find 
him a welcome addition wherever in the Navy he goes. 


When he was just entering second grade, Winn's father ('42) was 
transferred to the Naval Academy. From that time on he had his 
sights set on the goal of graduating from the trade school. It was 
sometimes an elusive goal, as Winn was never anxious to let 
studying interfere with his education. Academic skirmishes were as 
frequent as 4 week grading periods. However, Winn left his mark 
on the tennis counts, losing once in four seasons of intramural 
competition. An engrained love of the sea left him as one of the 
almost extinct breed of voluntary surface liners. June of '69 will 
find a dedicated Ensign with his sights on a new target. 



Bill, better known as Pro, has brought the heart of Queens, 
New York, tumbling down on Annapolis. He has delighted us all 
with his cheerful disposition, unending humor, and all the un- 
believable tales of life in the big city. With two years of schooling 
and ROTC training at City College of New York, he entered the 
Naval Academy fully prepared to excel as a midshipman. He is an 
ardent worker and has managed to keep himself near the top of 
the class in academics and aptitude. He is just as adept in his 
athletic endeavors, excelling in swimming, fieldball and weight- 
lifting. With the respect and lasting friendships that he has gained. 
Bill enters the fleet with best wishes from all who have known 


Bill, the pride of Chesapeake, entered the Academy after a 
successful year at the University of Baltimore. A natural athlete. 
Bill participated in varsity soccer until the end of second class year 
when he was sidelined due to an ankle injury. An affable and 
practical-minded individual. Bill will always be remembered for his 
charm with the opposite sex. Known as "Cass" by his close 
friends, Sigs, spent many an evening making life a little brighter 
for the Belles of Baltimore. A serious student. Bill spent many 
nights burning the midnight oil. With his professional attitude and 
high motivation. Bill will make an outstanding officer during his 
service career. 


Mark comes from Staten Island, New York where he was 
graduated from Curtis High School with mediocre grades and a 
keen interest in Mathematics and a career as a Naval Officer. After 
nearly bilging out Plebe year, "Uns" succeeded in making Dean's 
List and Supt's List for several semesters while pursuing a Math 
minor. When not engaged in the athletics of the intramural 
program, Mark could be found studying late into the night or at 
the computer lab. After crossing swords with the Executive 
Department, he worked hard toward a naval career, and was 
always willing to do a friend a favor. His willingness to work hard 
will serve him in good stead after graduation and in years to come. 


"Chuck" Wienke arrived at USNA from Kouts, Indiana via one 
year in the fleet and one year at the Naval Academy Prep School. 
A natural athlete. Chuck played Plebe baseball before lending his 
prowess to the company Softball, soccer and basketball teams and 
it was a rare afternoon that didn't see him on a court or field 
somewhere. Although he got off to a slow start. Chuck kept right 
on the books and managed to keep the Electrical Science De- 
partment from getting too far out of hand, even if it meant 
studying beyond his normal bedtime of 10:30 p.m. Chuck is a 
combination of ability and personality that will make him one of 
USNA's finest graduates.

On a Monday, any Monday the magic hour of 2000 found First 
Class rooms empty. The spectacle which drew all hands to the 
wardroom was called Laugh-In. On weekends the Goldie Hawn Fan 
Club dispersed to the corners of the world (or at least to Rip's) in a 
grand prix assortment of vehicles, from an old plymouth station 
wagon to the latest 'Vette with a 427 and 4 on the floor. That is 
except for two men: one was a high striper, the other was class A'd. 
The highlight of the year was the addition of a personally autographed 
picture of Goldie and a handwritten (printed?) note to our Goldie 
gallery. Company sports lacked, but not for lack of ability. The fact is 
that 7 firsties lettered and 4 others played varsity sports. After 
graduation Club 30 will again disperse never to be the same for 67% of 
all firsties will be getting married and another 1 3% are uncertain.

Jim came here from Ann Arbor, Michigan by way of the 
University of IVlichigan where he spent a year in the NROTC 
program. Although not academically inclined he made the Supt's 
List more often than not. He has become well known for his avid 
interest in scuba divmg and this past year served as safety officer 
of the USNA Scuba Club. Sportswise, Jim never made a varsity 
squad but played batt football and squash. Most afternoons he 
spent out on the Bay on his beloved YP, where he became very 
proficient in the magic of naval tactics. A happy-go-lucky guy, 
Bango will long be remembered for being faithful to his sweetheart 
back home. 


B-ville came to Navy from Joliet, Illinois where he had 
developed the fine art of throwing a baseball. This arm he devoted 
to the Plebe baseball team, but for some reason he could not 
coordinate it with the other one to achieve the required pro- 
ficiency in the pool. Thus Jim spent many afternoons as a member 
of the swimming sub squad. Besides baseball and sub squad, the 
Hound applied his athletic talents to company basketball and 
Softball. Although not an academic giant, he has spent many hours 
diligently pursuing a Mechanical Engineering minor. He has been a 
member of the Radio Club and has an avid interest in electronics. 
Jim will be an asset to whatever field he chooses. 


Upon graduation from high school in Bryan, Ohio, Rich came 
directly to the Naval Academy. He excelled academically his entire 
time as a midshipman and stars and Supt's List were a matter of 
course for him even while actively participating in the overload 
and majors program in Physics. While at the Academy, Rich has 
become an avid sailor and tries to spend as much time as possible 
away from the hall and out on the water. He also devoted several 
seasons to football and played both plebe and junior varsity 
basketball. Whatever branch of the service Rich chooses he is 
certain to be a success. 


Doug came to Navy from St. Petersburg and he found it easy to 
adapt to the military way, even though he kept a likmg for Florida 
beaches. Although not a "slash", Doug's grades were always 
respectable and he could usually spare time during study hour to 
shoot the breeze. He was a member of the Foreign Relations Club 
and gravitated towards contact sports, playing company fieldball, 
Softball and playing on the Brigade champion battalion football 
team as a plebe. Doug never had any doubt about his service 
selection. The Marine Corps was perhaps the only thing he showed 
more enthusiasm for than attending, or more often planning, the 
company's next party. Both interests should serve him well in 
future years. 




"Cons", who came from the beaches of Miami, was greatly 
surprised at finding no fraternities here at Ol' Navy. He played his 
one year with the Plebes and then went on to the "Little Blue." 
John is said by many to be the biggest 150 lb. football player in 
the country. In the off season he could always be found in the 
Field House weight room lifting anything that could be lifted. 
Cons who never let studies interfere with 2/c T.V. was not one to 
limit his assets to the academic life at Navy. He spent four long 
hard years looking for his Porsche. One of the few men known not 
to let Navy stifle his night life. John carries with him to the fleet 
all the attributes that will rank him among the best officers in the 


Jimmy came to Navy straight out of high school in Chicago. 
Right from the start he took an active and dynamic interest in life 
here. He quickly marked himself as a scholar Plebe year by earning 
a 4.00 his first semester. He proved that he was more than an 
academic slash though by winning a place on the Plebe fencing 
team, singing in the Chapel Choir and holding the position of 
Battalion Commander. Success has followed success for Jim, 
reaching its zenith second class year when he won Ail-American 
honors in fencing and was selected as a Trident Scholar. One of 
the most personable people at the Academy, Jim cannot help but 
make a fine officer. 


"Dizz" was known for his diversity of activities, which included 
Catholic Choir, French Club, the Reception Committee and the 
Sailing Squadron. His abilities as a quarterback were much sought 
after by the company light-heavyweight football team. These 
activities were complimented by a serious academic effort, which 
often kept him up to the early morning hours. Classmates would 
often ask him for help with the books. Weekends round out a 
midshipman's life, and Dizz knew how to round out the weekends. 
Classmates often relied on him for a good time, he was a great 
organizer and made the "System" work for him. 


Mike was born, it seems for the water and boats so Navy was 
his natural first choice. A Navy junior, he came here out of high 
school and quickly found his place on the sailing team, making 
numerous trips to Newport via Bermuda. Besides his maritime 
interests the "mover" found a place on the Plebe tennis team as 
well as such varied activities on the Log, NAFAC and the battalion 
squash team. One of the easiest going guys around, Mike never 
sweated the academics and was always free for a good time on the 
weekends. Even for this though, he flirted regularly with the Supt's 
List, which seemed always one step ahead. Mike will make it big 
wherever he goes in the fleet. 


"Gaigs", better known as "Mouse" or "Runt", came to the 
Academy from Tampa, Florida. Small in size, a fact he is never 
permitted to forget, Jer has enough drive and determination to 
take him wherever he chooses. A quick mind, that has kept him on 
the Supt's or Dean's Lists, and fine physical condition, that has 
made him Navy's number one man in Free Exercise and Tram- 
poline, are only two of his many attributes. One of the infamous 
"Sportin' Crew", you can always count on Jer for a good time, 
although his second class year he spent a lot of time making up for 
his "Little Red Midget." The Navy awaits one of the finest 
individuals the Academy has to offer. 


Born and raised in New England, Maury came to Navy from St. 
John's Prep, where he graduated with honors. His excellence in 
French accompanied by his exceptional conversational ability 
ranked high among his talents. When he wasn't singing with the 
Glee Club, you might find Maury writing a letter to a girl or 
dreaming of sports cars on the blue trampoline. Best remembered 
for his Pensacola pastime, Maury was a favorite-son and a noted 
authority on several of our finer Officer's Clubs. He is an avid 
intramural fan, excelling in rugby and handball. His combined 
talents, experience and devotion in getting the job done, ac- 
companied by his traits of a competent leader and an accom- 
plished gentleman insure his future success. 



"Harbs" hails us from the land of Sunny Arizona. His diver- 
sified interests and adequate knowledge in subjects ranging from 
Beethoven and Da Vinci, to how to make enchiladas, made him a 
valuable source to his classmates and friends. When they came, he 
was always willing to help, and when he didn't know, he would 
drop his work to find out. Mike found few difficulties in 
academics, except for an occasional run in with Mat. Energetically 
devoted to crew, he put on 30 lbs. "Harbs" overcame every hurdle 
he encountered during his four year sojourn at Annapolis — except 
for the winter climate. 


Gary comes from the beautiful Rocky Mountain city of 
Missoula, Montana. "Butch" found the realm of Aeronautical 
academics much to his fancy and made the Supt's List almost 
every semester. When there was work to be done, Gary could 
always be found right in the middle helping out. His easy-going 
ways made him many friends here at Navy. His presence on the 
athletic teams was always in big demand. The cowboy from the 
"Big Sky Country" will be an able, welcome addition to the Naval 



By the time he arrived at Navy, Chuck had already gone to 
submarine school, where he graduated first in his class and had 
spent a year in college. Since Plebe summer Chuck has developed 
an extraordinary interest in computers and programming. He has a 
reputation for knowing everything in the books and a great deal 
which is not, and he is always willing to set aside his own work 
to help out someone else with a program. But computers are not 
his only interest. Chuck has participated in several outdoor 
intramural sports, including soccer, football and rugby, his fa- 
vorite. He enjoys participation in choir and has been a member of 
the German Club and the YP Squadron. 


Clint came to the Naval Academy from Fullerton, California, 
where he attended Fullerton Junior College for one year. He is 
known to many of his classmates as cowboy Clint and can be seen 
on leave wearing appropriate western attire. He is a staunch 
member of the Protestant Chapel Choir, where he attempts to 
integrate his strong western vocabulary of "yahoo," and "get 
along little doggie," with the joyous singing of hymns. He expends 
his energy sleeping and playing soccer and fieldball. His qualities 
of stubborness, confidence and professional competence will aid 
him tremendously in his naval career. 



Fred hails from Western Pennsylvania and came to the Naval 
Academy via NAPS. A great lover of sports, at almost any time he 
was willing to play, especially basketball, football or baseball. The 
only trouble he had was swimming, and many a winter afternoon 
would find him in the Natatorium practicing. Academics were no 
problem, and Fred was almost always to be found on the Supt's 
List. It seemed as if he never met anyone who wasn't his friend, 
even though he was known for his quiet manner. In fact, it was 
once said that compared to Fred, Mt. Rushmore was a loquacious 


"Kirbs", as he was known by his friends, left no doubt as to 
where he was from by his New York accent and his "Broadway 
Shuffle" through the halls of "Mother B." Jim came to us after 
graduating with honors from Mater Christi High School in the 
heart of the "Big City." His interests were varied, but his favorite 
was crooning with the Glee Club. He was an avid intramural faii, 
playing "Bag-it" Softball and heavyweight football for four years, 
getting heavier each year. Coming to Navy gave Jim many new 
horizons, especially his discovery of a deep-seated preference for 
Southern Belles. His sincerity and high-spirited ambition, com- 
ouflaged by his easy-going nature, has won him many friends and 
will continue to lead to a brilliant career. 


Rich came to the U. S. Naval Academy from Erie, Penn- 
sylvania. Desiring to further his already successful harrier career, 
he bacame a varsity member of the cross country and track teams. 
During many fall afternoons, he enjoyed the calmness of the 
outdoors while running at the golf course. His tenacious desire to 
run to win culminated in his earning the N-star. After becoming 
qualified as a Navy sucba diver, he turned his energies toward the 
Scuba Club. From instructing prereveille scuba classes to par- 
ticipating in ocean dives, he vigorously pursued this nautical 
pastime. Rich was a Mathematics minor with an interest in the 
Foreign Relations Club. His determination and spirit will mark 
him as a valuable man. 


Charlie Nation entered the Naval Academy after gaining a firm 
academic background and achieving a notable athletic career in 
baseball, basketball and football at Salisbury School. However, his 
athletic spirit was too restless so he sought for a new kind of sport. 
Crew became his new challenge. Charlie spent many afternoons 
away from Bancroft Hall participating in Plebe crew and later as 
an upperclassman on the varsity crew team. At the end of 3/c 
year, Charlie managed to excel in academics and make Supt's List. 
With his spirit and strong determination Charlie will obtain any 
goal that he seeks. 


Denny left the good times at Penn State University for the 
challenging atmosphere of the Naval Academy. A native of 
Williamsport, Pennsylvania, he found his NROTC training invalu- 
able as he endeavored to meet the "blood, sweat, toil and tears" of 
the months ahead. Denny soon found that the academic frontier 
was a vastly unexplored region-conquered only by many long 
hours of study. This did not, however, limit his extracurricular 
activities as he took an active part in the Foreign Relations Club 
and a variety of intramural sports. Denny's strong concern with 
professionalism coupled with his serious attitude throughout his 
four years at the Academy, ensure hirfi a successful future in 
whatever service he chooses. 


Probs, came bouncing into Bancroft Hall from the Prep School 
at Bainbridge after turning down numerous basketball and baseball 
scholarships. Coming from Newark, New Jersey he was never one 
to let the tough life at Navy bother him. Finding a certain lack of 
nightlife here, he succeeded in making his own. Among his notable 
achievements was an unusually high score on the second class T.V. 
test. Never one for the studies, he devoted many long hours to 
basketball and baseball, winning a letter in basketball as a 
Youngster. His leadership and quick wit will be a welcome 
addition to any part of the Navy he chooses. 



A Navy junior, Robbie was born in Washington, D. C. but came 
to the Academy after five years in Hawaii, including one at the 
university. The hardest transition from the beach boy life was 
wearing shoes; after that was mastered, the system was easy. 
Except for second class year, academics were little problem as 
Robbie wavered off and on the Supt's List and rare was the 
weekend spent answering to the BOOW's muster. Weekends were 
better spent indulging in the finer, though usually non-reg, things 
in life. Robbie contributed heavily to company sports teams, 
especially basketball which he had played in college. Robbie's easy 
going personality and ability to handle anything will serve him 
well in the future. 


From the farmlands of Ohio, Dave was always one of the best 
liked in the company, a great sport and an all-around good guy. 
Nothing could get him down and he smiled more often than not. 
Singing was his second love and through the Glee Club and choir, 
it led him to many good times, his first love. An extracurricular 
activities major, Dave had so many good deals we thought he 
wrote his own movement orders. Academics were no problem for 
Dave and he used his time, when he was around, for more 
important things. He was quick to laugh, always ready to listen 
and always eager to help out. Dave will succeed in anything he

Havmg overcome the initial shock of Plebe year, Joe initiated 
his drive to succeed in all aspects of Academy life. He assumed the 
name of "Duke", which his classmates had dubbed him. As a 
member of the Log Staff and the Ring Committee, Duke seemed 
to be most representative of our class and its spirit. Having firmly 
grasped academics, he turned to the Severn River where he pulled 
an oar for the lightweight varsity crew. By the end of Youngster 
year his determination paid off and he earned his letter. Whether it 
be in crew, at academics, or during his career, Joe's drive and 
determination will always put him ahead. 


Buck came to Navy from Newark, New York. Through his four 
years here he has shown great enthusiasm for gymnastics. Starting 
with the first battalion team, where he took first place on the rings 
and second place on the high bar, he has been out for gym for all 
but one set, working his way up to varsity level. But his interest 
has not been in gymnastics alone. He has participated throughout 
in Antiphonal Choir and has sailed on the schooner Freedom. 
Academically, his interests lie in mechanics. Mathematics and 
Marine Engineering and he is particularly interested in hull design. 
Buck is best known for working hard at everything from aca- 
demics to sports and extracurricular activities.

Much enthusiasm has remained with the 7th/31st company. Class 
of '69 . . . only over the years it changed its direction. Plebe year. 
Weaver commented on our Christmas party: "What it lacked in 
discretion, it made up for in enthusiasm!" And from that point on, we 
turned our enthusiasm from p-rades to parties (how many times 1/c 
year did our p-rade standing beat our company number?). Even as 
early as Youngster year, we learned Alex usually had something 
cooking for the weekend, whether it was an "official" hayride or an 
"unofficial" blast with the Legionnaires. The skiers among us 
managed to spread their fame; if not on the slopes, then in the 
Bavarian Room. And who can forget the "Crazy Spaniard" with his 
OAS contingent, plotting everything from parties to revolutions. At 
home there was the "Nurses", the "House," and even a helpful 
librarian to take memorable pictures (right. Buck?). Of course, it 
wasn't ail parties, but who wants to remember anything else?

LT F.O. Fay, USN 



Dave, being a Navy Junior, came to the Academy well oriented 
toward a service career. Best known to his classmates for his 
organizational ability, there was never a social event he didn't 
attend and seldom one he hadn't planned. Having little trouble 
with academics, until final exams, Dave had the repeated dis- 
tinction of just missing the next higher mark. Being athletically 
minded, afternoons found him on the golf course, supporting 
teams or wrestling with his mattress. When not lost in academics at 
night there was always something cooking and could usually be 
smelled throughout the wing. A hard worker with a serious 
purpose, Dave can be assured of a bright future in the Navy. 


Arch came to the Academy straight from Northeast Catholic 
High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Deeply seeded in his 
background is a love of the summers spent at the beach — Ocean 
City on the New Jersey seashore. Maybe this is where he 
developed the carefree, light-hearted attitude which followed him 
through the halls around here for four years. Arch spent the 
majority of his athletic time playing company football and 
Softball. During his entire stay here he has always excelled first as 
an individual. At all times a great procrastinator, he never did 
today what could be put off until tomorrow, unless it had 
something to do with sleeping. Arch definitely shows the makings 
of a career officer. 


A product of Southern California, Buck came to Navy straight 
from San Marino High School. Whether the topic of discussion be 
surfing, girls or skiing, he is quick to defend the merits of the West 
Coast. The baseball team had his services for two years before 
Buck decided to devote more time to academics. This did not stop 
him, however, from contributing greatly to the company heavies' 
many victories or helping out in most of our class projects. Buck's 
friendliness, outgoing personality and willingness to help anyone 
in need have earned him many lasting friendships. No matter what 
branch of the service he enters, there is little doubt that Buck's 
contributions will be many and of high quality. 


Steve came to the Academy straight from Tappan Zee High 
School where he had been an outstanding athlete in cross country 
and track. As a Plebe he won his numerals in cross country, indoor 
and outdoor track and escape some of the rigors of Plebe year on 
the training tables. Not one to sacrifice grades for sports, Steve has 
also excelled in academics, being named to the Supt's List and 
Dean's List, despite long hours in the Chemistry labs. Although 
studies and athletics took up much of his time at USNA, Steve 
always found time for the Saturday night marathon, liberty, and 
that special girl back home. Steve is a product of which USNA can 
be justly proud. 


"Farley" hailed to the Academy from the Gulf Coast city of 
Beaumont, Texas with surfboard in hand. The upper class quickly 
displaced thoughts of surf as he buckled down to life at Navy. 
Following his Texas inclinations he settled on a Bull major, and In 
its pursuit he became a regular on the Dean's and Supt's Lists. 
Always searching for new ideas the demands of the Academy and 
the opportunities of the Washington area never awed John, but 
served as a constant challenge. If anyone ever wanted to discuss 
any topic, he was the man to see. In Farley, the fleet will gain an 
enthusiastic and inquisitive mind devoted to winning and jobs well 


After a year at the University of California at Berkeley, Mike 
came to the shores of the Severn where he could be more than the 
typical College Joe and through his tenure has maintained the cool 
which separates the leaders from the followers. The fiercest of 
competitors, he has shown his skill on the athletic field, in the 
classroom and in the drag houses of old Annapolis. Mike's easy 
going nature and devotion to duty have made him popular and 
well respected. Mike's professionalism, agility and personal pride 
will carry him a long way in any field of the Naval Service. 




A son of California, Terry longs for the sand and the surf that 
he left four long years ago. He came to the Academy well prepared 
for success after two years in the Naval Reserve and a year at the 
University of Santa Clara. Since arriving in Annapolis, Terry has 
kept himself busy with academics while participating extensively 
in company sports. If you can't find him at the books or on the 
athletic field he will probably be selling Christmas cards, sched- 
uling the members of the Class of 1969 for Lucky Bag pictures or 
working on a company project. Terry's determination and his fine 
organizational ability will make him an asset to the operational 


Walt arrived on the shores of the Severn within forty-five 
minutes of his departure from his home in Silver Spring, Maryland. 
This proved to be priceless throughout his four year residence by 
the Bay. Tall, soft-spoken, well-mannered and poised describe Walt 
but his conscientiousness prevails. All he undertakes is maturely 
organized and he has the ability of selecting the most important 
segments of any task. Hence, he has transformed unnecessary 
hours of study time into ones of worthwhile activity. Of these, the 
"pad" is very dear to him. Walt has demonstrated a high motiva- 
tion concerning his future in the Naval Service and there is little 
doubt that his capabilities will take him far in any field he enters. 


"Deins" made his initial impression at USNA on the eardrums 
of unsuspecting upperclass who became victims of his verbal carry 
on during Plebe year. This faculty for vocal devastation later 
served him well in two Musical Clubs Shows, the debate team and 
the Plebe Detail. Rapidly having gained a reputation as a slash, his 
room became the source of good gouge and Swiss cheese, the 
latter being imported from his hometown of Monroe, Wisconsin. 
Never at a loss for a few thousand words, he put talents gained as 
Bull major to good use First Class year when he served as Editor of 
Trident Magazine. The fleet will gain from this young man a quick 
mind and a clear voice. 


Rudy, as he is known to his classmates, gave up the mild 
climate and good living of Costa Rica, for the rigorous and 
disciplined Academy life. Finding soccer a welcome substitute for 
drill he participated in the sport for three years. Never worried by 
academics, Rudy completed a Mechanical Engineering major while 
advocating his theory that grades are inversely proportional to 
study time. The fact that he is very patriotic towards his homeland 
was asserted by the numerous posters and flags displayed around 
his room. An admirable ambassador of his country Rudy was 
quick to discuss world events or foreign policy. Dedication and 
hard work assure him of a bright future at home. 



After trying ROTC at the University of Santa Clara, Larry 
decided that the Navy was his real calling. Although recruited for 
football, Larry's interests in contact sports soon turned to rugby 
and fieldball. Every year found Larry devoting himself to more 
and more activities. On a given week Larry could be found 
working on anything from pop music concerts to company 
hayrides. Never one to waste time, Larry always manages to 
squeeze more into a day than anyone thought possible. Larry's 
practical ability and sound judgement will assure continued suc- 
cess throughout his career. 


Coming straight from Brooklyn Technical High School in New 
York, "Duke" found his four years at the Naval Academy to be 
quite a change from big city life. Few knew the big blue teams 
better than him and rarely would he turn down a sporting event. 
Weekdays found his own performance on the company Softball 
team no less than great. Academics proved no problem to Duke 
and he found much time to enjoy his big interest in popular music 
— a topic in which he is an acknowledged expert. Always ready for 
a good time, he has many friends throughout the class. Un- 
doubtedly his fine ability will prove a welcome addition to the 


Tom came to the Academy after serving a year in the Naval 
Reserve. A Navy junior, he arrived from Phoenix to continue in 
the footsteps of his father. Track was his sport as he set numerous 
Plebe records and continued into the varsity. A standout also in 
intramural squash and academics, Tom has been both on the 
Supt's List and the Dean's List, despite the great deal of the time 
spent as Battalion Honor Representative. His hobbies ranged from 
winding his string ball in his spare time to dragging one of his 
many female admirers. Never one to be outdone, Tom could be 
both sincere and hardworking, leaving an impression felt by all. 
With his attitude and drive, Tom will go afar. 


Tony or "Buddha" as he is known in his hometown of West 
Orange, New Jersey, will always be remembered for his leadership, 
athletic ability and sense of humor. An excellent athlete, Tony 
played Plebe and varsity baseball and was a strong asset to 
company intramural teams. His leadership and winning spirit was 
immediately evident to all who played with or against him. If 
Tony wasn't in his room putting in the many hours of studying, 
for which he was well known, he could usually be found with the 
Italian delegation in the First Regiment. Tony's ability to get 
along well with everyone will continue to aid him in whatever he 
undertakes in the future. 


Denny was graduated from Greenville High School and joined 
the Nittany Lions in the center of his home state, Pennsylvania. In 
NROTC Denny couldn't pass up the chance of switching to the 
Naval Academy, the birthplace of great officers. Under the "hard 
but fair" leadership of Leo Francis, Denny became a model 
midshipman. He kept an outstanding attitude throughout his 
career as a mid and was liked and respected by exeryone who 
knew him. A devotee of basketball, girls, bull and Corvettes, not 
necessarily in that order, Denny kept busy. His desire and ability 
to complete a job well done, and magnetic personality will make 
him a success in the Navy and anything else he might choose. 


"Hoff", a Navy Junior, came to the Naval Academy right out 
of high school with the highest hopes for a future in the Navy. His 
grades were never anything worth mentioning and as for sports, he 
played varsity soccer for three years until he was retired. Never 
really trying to get involved in things, he nonetheless usually found 
himself entangled in Naval Academy life, first as the company 
artist Plebe year and then later gaining different and perhaps more 
dubious titles. Whatever the branch of the Naval Service Ralph 
goes into, he will carry with him his sureness and certainly of 
character that will make him a success. 



Bob arrived at the Naval Academy from Portland, Oregon and 
Madison High School. A football standout there, he traded his 
cleats for an oar Plebe summer and became an integral part of the 
heavyweight crew team. After Plebe year, however, academics 
became more important, and he gave up crew for company 
heavyweight football. Although not letting studies stand in the 
way of a good time, Bob still frequented the Supt's List. Weekends 
would usually find him with a smiling pretty girl taking in a movie, 
a sporting event or just walking in the Yard. A dedicated 
midshipman and a devout Christian, Bob in his quiet sincere 
manner has won the respect and friendship of all his associates. 


After graduating from Darien High School, Jim arrived at Navy 
to begin his stay on the Severn. Never one to let books interfere 
with a good time, he still managed to be on the Supt's and 
sometimes the Dean's Lists. Due to a strong dislike for marching 
and because of outstanding athletic ability, Jim has been an 
integral member of Navy's track team since Plebe year. Weekends 
found Jim enjoying himself skiing or in the company of some 
young lady. Jim will be best remembered by his classmates for his 
unpredictable wit and winning personality. The Navy will be the 
benenef iciary of a great talent in whatever branch Jim decides to 


After graduation from Brooklyn Technical High School in New 
York, Mike spent a year at Columbia Prep before getting a room in 
Bancroft. His athletic ability earned him much respect and many 
friends in the Brigade. He won a letter in baseball as the starting 
first baseman during Youngster year, and he saw action both as 
quarterback and tight end on the varsity football team. It was 
never a dull time to be around Mike. During leave his house was 
open to all, and any guest found a warm welcome and two of the 
greatest parents and hosts anywhere. Certainly Mike's wonderful 
personality and dedication to being the best will make a success of 
his future. 


John, or Doc as most of his classmates call him, came to Navy 
directly from Lew Wallace High School in Gary, Indiana. A fine 
athlete in high school. Doc had no trouble in aiding the Plebe 
baseball team with his talents. He made the traveling team his 
Youngster year but the rigors of Navy life made him turn in his 
catcher's mitt for an intramural basketball. The books were no 
strangers to Doc and he had little trouble excelling, although he 
was never one to turn down a good time. Doc's capacity to lead, 
enhanched by his winning spirit has made him an outstanding 
midshipman. We are sure that these qualities will insure him a fine 



Oklahoma is proud to have Pete representing her here in 
Annapolis. He came to the Academy straight from the arms of 
Northwest Classen High School in Oklahoma City. It didn't take 
him long to find out that the Academy life was very demanding 
but this didn't hinder Pete's desire to excel. By validating several 
courses, he made room for the electives necessary to complete a 
major in Electrical Science. When not studying, Pete could be 
found somewhere in the company area "fixin' it". He can repair 
almost anything from a broken lock to an inoperative stereo set. 
Any time a helping hand is needed, Pete is willing to assist. Pete's 
ability and desire make his success as a naval officer a certainty. 


Zuke, as he is affectionately called, came to good ol' USNA 
from Davenport, Iowa after a year at St. Ambrose. Never known 
as an academic slash, Zuke spent his waking hours (which weren't 
many) on more important things, like the weaker sex; big ones, 
small ones, kind ones, fine ones. Zuke wants to see them all before 
he takes the final plunge. Always active, Zuke is a wholehearted 
backer of intramural sports. To prove his physical prowess he gave 
up two weeks of summer leave to go to Jungle Warfare School. 
Although as yet uncertain as to service selection, our balding hero 
should make a fine officer. 


"Red" will always have a place in the memories of the members 
of the Class of '69. One of the most likeable, easygoing and fun 
loving Buckeyes that Chillicothe, Ohio ever sent to the Naval 
Academy, Red was truly an asset to our class. Whether on the 
basketball court, in the hall, or on a weekend, he was always in the 
thick of things. He was usually in the thick of things with the 
books, too, although he was not exactly a frequenter of the Supt's 
List. If Red keeps his winning attitude and competitive spirit he 
will be an asset to the fleet, and can look forward to a bright 


"Wendell" will always have fond memories of his four years at 
the Naval Academy. After arriving from Orlando, Florida, he 
wasted no time in making the most of Youngster year. Leading the 
varsity rifle team to the 1968 national championship, he was 
named to the Ail-American team as only a sophomore. Through- 
out his three years on the varsity, Wendell set numerous records 
and was always a standout. Academically Wendell never letdown 
either, except maybe once. He could always be counted on to give 
his best effort for the company, even if it meant being thrown out 
of a Softball game for being overly enthusiastic. Undoubtedly his 
outgoing personality and tremendous ability will be welcome to 
the fleet. 


A native of upstate New York, Mike brought his bright humor 
and easy-going manner to USNA directly from Tonowanda High. 
A swimmer, "The Wulf" splashed for a season for Navy but then 
chose to devote more time to academics. Athletics, however, 
remained important in his Academy life. A solid member of the 
company softball and "heavies" teams, never a day passed when 
he would not be absorbed in the morning's sports news. When not 
on liberty, Mike devoted many hours to studying — in the 
horizontal position. He will always be remembered as a staunch 
competitor at the wardroom "T.V. marathons." Mike's ever- 
present enthusiasm, outgoing personality and way with people 
brings the friendship and respect of all who know him.

Paul, affectionately identified as "Walrus", came to us from 
Pennsylvania Dutch Country. A fine competitor in all fields, Paul 
can always be counted on for a battle, whether it be an intra- 
company wrestling match, a bridge game or a discussion on logic. 
It is no wonder that the squash courts became Paul's first love, 
where, as a varsity player, he spent a good deal of time both 
physically and mentally. But Paul's athletic prowess does not end 
with squash. He can always find time for a tennis match and is 
renowned for his game of ping pong. Although Paul's ideas don't 
always conform to those of the common norm, he is highly 
respected for his consistency and inexhorable adherence to prin- 


Bringing with him a ready smile and a quick wit, John came to 
the Academy from Pleasantville, New Jersey. Physically though 
and a walking sports almanac, he always put his heart into any 
athletic contest. He played hard in intramural soccer and football, 
but rugby, with its hard-hitting fast action, was his favorite 
competitive sport. John, also proving an able match for the 
academic department, often won a spot on the Supt's List and his 
desire and ingenuity gained him the editorship of the Trident 
Calendar. His perseverance and hard work should guarantee John 
success on any goal he sets. 


Mike, or Monk, as he is known affectionately by his more 
outgoing classmates, escaped to the Academy from Yakima, 
Washington, Known more for its apples than its midshipmen. 
While a Plebe he acheived a first team billet as a wrestler, but in 
later years was known more for his fluctuating grades and artistic 
abilities than his achievements as a "mat man." A good all-around 
athlete, Mike's interests ranged along the continuum from football 
to his first love of pocket billiards, in which he was undefeated in 
regulation play. Mikes quick mind and sense of humor will prove 
to stimulate all those he meets in his future as a naval officer. 


Dave came to us from New Mexico Military Institute following 
in the footsteps of his Dad. Eager to excel, Dave readily adapted 
himself to the system and earned the respect of all who knew him. 
His academic efforts paid off with consistent Supt's List and 
occasional Dean's List awards. While during the week Dave was 
always cracking a book, weekends were always left for pleasure 
and the company of a charming young lady. Dave will long be 
remembered by his classmates for his outstanding leadership 
qualities, his handstands in the hall, and those ever present puns. 
Whatever the service holds for Dave's future, the Navy will soon 
realize that they couldn't have asked for a finer officer. 


Tom, a native of East Meadow, New York, came to the 
Academy from high school. After Plebe summer he set his sights 
on academic excellence and has been a regular on the Dean's List. 
After meeting with continued success in the Math Department, 
Tom elected to strike for a double Math major. Classmates could 
frequently be found in his room as he shared his abilities with 
those in need. His strong competitive spirit and love of sports were 
demonstrated on the Brigade championship squash team. His 
many interests and radiant personality will follow him in whatever 
field he chooses. Tom will always win the freindship and respect 
of those he meets as he has with all of us. 



Coming to Navy by way of various eastern cities, Kevin claims 
the Oxnard Jettys, California as his home. Although similar to 
Harold Robbins' fictitious character "Fat Cat", Clanc was as fierce 
a competitor on the athletic field as he was a bubbling personality 
elsewhere. One of the best surfers in the Academy, Kevin's ability 
to catch the big wave was surpassed only by his knack for "riding 
the curve", which usually left him in the low B grade-range when 
the tide rolled out. Lucky enough to meet a local girl of his liking, 
Kevin found weekends to be much more enjoyable than his less 
fortunate classmates, in that his record of 30 out of 32 weekends 
to D. C. in a year is unbeaten. 


From his Don Juan haircut down to his East Coast body 
surfer's knots, Steve is all mid. Hailing from the wilds of Long 
Island, where it is rumored that boys are born wearing wrestling 
gear and carrying lacrosse sticks, Steve proved to be no dis- 
appointment. Playing three varsity sports, however, took its toll 
on the wrestling captain's grades, as he always seemed closer to the 
Commandant's List than the Sup's List. Known almost as much 
for his piercing laugh and his beautiful girl's cookies, as for his 
athletic prowess, Steve was always a willing listener and lender of 
helpful advice to his classmates. There is no doubt that after the 
trials and tribulations of company commander, Steve will be an 
excellent naval officer. 


The last of the great playboys on the East Coast, Cork came to 
Canoe U. directly from Salesianum School in Wilmington, Dela- 
ware. Having shoved the coast button plebe summer, he gave his 
undivided attention to the NA-10 and also had stints with the 
Musical Clubs Shows and the Concert Band. Warm weather would 
always find Cork on the tennis courts playing for the battalion 
team. Other times would find him in Mem Hall playing piano as a 
bonus attraction for the touri. Cork devoted any available time 
left to dragging and his minor in Steam, usually in that order. His 
happy nature and pleasant outlook towards everything will make 
Cork a welcome addition to the Navy. 


Smiling Mike, from the deep water country of Illinois, came to 
the Academy after a year at Southern Illinois University. Being 
wise in the ways of the world. Mike was often turned to for advice 
on varied subjects. Always a fun-loving individual, Mike never let 
the Academy cramp his style. After battling through Plebe year 
academics, Mike's natural ability in Bull, his chosen minor, made 
academics smooth sailing, although he often burned the midnight 
oil over Science courses. No matter which branch of the Naval 
Service Mike decides to conquer, his professional attitude and easy 
going ways should be of great benefit to him and his colleagues. 


Bruce, known as Dax by those who loved him, came to the 
Academy from the dry pea capital of the world, Moscow, Idaho. 
After summers of mountain climbing and drag racing his '55 
Chevy up in "God's Country", Bruce quickly made the transition 
to the D. C. Raceway (Route 50) and scaling the walls of Bancroft 
whenever the need arose. Sought after for company sports because 
of his physical stamina and athletic abilities, he was always a 
winner — although the teams fluctuated from last to Brigade 
Champs. Despite his questionable study habits, which included 
pool and pinochle, Bruce was a frequent visitor to the Supt's List. 
Bruce will always be remembered for receiving his "letter" in 
company boxing and his poetic achievements. 


Gerry was right at home at the Naval Academy. Having 
demonstrated his abilities as an enlisted man, Gerry was given a 
Secretary of the Navy appointment, but relinquished it in favor of 
his Congressional appointment in order to allow another fellow 
Napster to enter the Academy. Sometimes the going got tough, 
but he always came out on top. Gerry's interest was electronics, 
so, he pursued the difficult course of study — Electrical Science. 
An asset to the Juice Gang, Gerry spent many evenings setting the 
lighting for the Musical Clubs and Masqueraders Shows. A connois- 
seur of pipes, his collection was second to none. Friendly, 
understanding, and a hard worker, Gerry is sure to be an asset to 
the Naval Service. ^j-c 


Jimbo is a Marine junior currently following in his father's 
footsteps at the Academy. He had a fluid high school education, 
attending four of them before graduating in Beaufort, South 
Carolina in 1965. He now calls Lonoke, Arkansas his home. Jimbo 
is versatile in many fields, being an accomplished guitarist, private 
pilot, "Townie" Hunter and scholar; he is an oft-repeated member 
of the Supt's and Dean's Lists and was designated a Trident 
Scholar for 1968-69. He has also been active in yawl sailing, the 
Antiphonal Choir and company sports. He plans to be in the 
immediate master's program in Physics upon graduation and in 
Jimbo's case, what he sets his mind to has a way of happening. 


Steve entered the Academy after a year in the social whirl at 
Randolph-Macon College in Virginia. It didn't take Steve long to 
establish a firm relationship with the messhall and quickly became 
the company "heavyweight", a title he was to keep all during his 
tour at the Academy. Steve swam through the academics here, just 
keeping his head above water. However, he did complete a major 
course of study, that of "pad-ology." Behind the carefree exterior 
grew a deep respect for his chosen profession and for his fellow 
men. The Navy was fortunate to be able to pull Steve from his 
civilian campus and will continue to benefit as Steve finds his way 
into the fleet. 


Jim arrived at the Academy straight out of high school in 
Marietta, Georgia but now gives Spartanburg, South Carolina as a 
home address. A Navy junior, he fit right in to "the system." After 
emerging from Plebe year with a high standing, Jim then plunged 
head first into a Aero Engineering major. The stiff curriculum put 
a slight dent in his grade point, but sheer determination eliminated 
the possibility of a permanent stumbling block. Debate takes up 
much of Jim's time, but his name may also be found on the rugby 
injuries list in the Spring. Jim's sights are set on a Navy career 
where he is certain to leave his mark. 


Big Jim called the bad lands of South Dakota his home. Having 
spent one year at the South Dakota School of Mines and 
Technology Jim fit right in to the rigors of the life at the 
Academy. Although he sometimes experienced a little difficulty 
with his chosen field of Electrical Science, he always managed to 
end up sat at the end of the semester. Always an aggressive 
competitor in sports, Jim was a valuable member of many 
company teams. His competitive spirit and keen sense of duty will 
be a valuable asset to Jim in whichever branch of the armed forces 
he chooses to direct his ability. 




"The old man" was born and bred in the North woods of 
Wisconsin and for him the ingredients for a perfect day are a case 
of beer and a brisk trout stream. Coming to USNA via NAPS gave 
Mike a head start on most of us professionally. Also, since he was 
the company's oldest man (and presumably the most experienced) 
his opinions on practically everything were well heeded by his 
classmates. Each week night would find Mike up well past 
midnight studying, and as a result, he was consistently on the 
Supt's List. Mike's major is Oceanography and he plans to go into 
this field after graduation. 


George was practically born a bosun's mate. An avid motorboat 
enthusiast he spent much of his high school days working on 
boats. Later plans call for a continuation of this line on a slightly 
larger scale — destroyers. George vied for a place on the soccer 
team as a goalie both as a Plebe and a Youngster. The 32nd 
company found George a valuable asset to its regimental champion 
lightweight football team. Academics were not his first love, but 
he found a history minor most to his liking. If the Navy has a slot 
for a hard worker with an acute attention to orderliness, with a 
star, a stripe and Bull, George will fill it well. 


Rick came to the Academy — the third from his family. Since 
he had to report before his parents moved to their present home in 
Alameda, California, Rick never had a chance to become a real, 
live "California Dreamer." However, his dreams of academic 
excellence soon came true on the Supt's List and Dean's List. No 
one is ever sure if his second class coffee table attempt will ever 
materialize after the seventh failure. His dreamy Christmas dis- 
plays will always be remembered. But his biggest wish has been 
coming true gradually as his friendliness and comradship have 
made him an outstanding friend and a class leader. 


A true Southerner from Richmond, Virginia, "Newts" brought 
the Academy the fighting spirit and drive characteristic of a great 
leader. Although taking an active interest in intramural soccer and 
as indoor track manager. Bill found batt tennis his favorite 
racquet. A terror in the academics departments, he had little 
trouble with his courses and was a consistent member of the 
Dean's and Supt's List. Devoting much time to Chapel Choir and 
the Glee Club, Bill spent few weekends without being on an 
extracurricular trip or without a drag. With his personal desire to 
excel in any job that he encounters, and his uncanny ability to 
organize. Bill has established the foundation which will lead him 
to a successful Naval Career. 


Jerry came to USNA in the summer of 1965 by way of Alvin 
Junior College. Having lived in Galveston, Texas all his life, the 
water was not a new phenomenon to Jerry. Plebe year found him 
rowing lightweight crew, when he wasn't "visiting" a certain 
firstie. His love for food was not to conducive to lightweight crew, 
however, and so Youngster Year Jerry established his permanent 
residency with the varsity Sailing Squadron. Renowned for his 
card-playing ability, Jerry's favorite pastime was 500 Rummy, that 
is when he wasn't in the pad checking for eyelid leaks. Jerry's 
great sense of humor, warm personality, and high motivation are 
sure to make him one of the Navy's finest officers. 


"Bakes," hailing from the Peach State of Georgia, was one of 
the few members of our class who had the physical attribute of 
being able to look through a key hole with both eyes. An avid 
competitor in the intramural program. Baker soon discovered a 
love for handball and squash. Second class year found him active 
with the Public Affairs Committee, and he created the first USNA 
Kinetic Light Show. Never at a loss for a timely comment. Baker 
took a sincere interest in those entrusted to his leadership. With 
his electives from the Management Department, and his persistent 
attitude to complete any job. Baker should be a welcome addition 
to the Naval Service. 



Arriving directly from Catholic Central High School in Grand 
Rapids, Michigan, John headed straight for the Natatorium, where 
he was rewarded for his hard work by a prized "N". Four years of 
constant soaking left him sufficiently water-logged to absorb a 
three point average from the academic department. As a regular on 
the Supt's List, he managed to convince the wild profs of the 
Science Department that he deserved an Electrical Science major. 
A volunteer submariner during first class cruise, John's economic 
"periscope liberty" enabled him to save enough for the down 
payment on his Cortina supercar. The Navy will find his deter- 
mination and willingness-to-work a valuable asset. 


As a confirmed Northerner from Buffalo, New York, the "Jaw" 
brought with him to Navy the good nature, quick wit and drive 
which enable him to win friends and influence his fellow man. In 
addition to being an avid sports fan, he is a fine athlete in his own 
right, excelling in varsity soccer and as a member of the Brigade 
Championship basketball team. In almost every tangle with the 
academic department, John has emerged on top and has been a 
consistent member of the Supt's and Dean's Lists. Always ready 
with a song, a friendly nature and a desire to excel, John will 
contribute to the Naval Service the leadership ability necessary for 
a successful career. 


Terry arrived in Annapolis directly from Coloracfo Springs 
bringing with him an aggressive and cheerful personality. Though 
most of his leisure time was taken up with academics, he utilized 
most of his study hours perfecting his art work, learning the 
guitar, and mastering pinochle. In spite of his lack of previous 
experience, Terry became one of the finer floor exercise com- 
petitors in the East. At any party, acrobatics, but "technical" 
difficulties usually prevented his performing a "half-time" show. 
Terry has always been willing to accept any task and has worked 
many hours on successful Army projects. The fleet will win a 
willing worker and a ready wit from Terry. 


The Sooners of the University of Oklahoma lost an ardent 
supporter when Don elected to come to Navy from Norman, 
Oklahoma. A second generation alumnus, Don readily adapted to 
life at the Academy. Plebe year found Don contributing his six 
foot six inch frame to Navy basketball, a dedication which was to 
continue for two more years. Plebe crew and a number of 
intramural sports were also among his efforts. Don's academics ran 
hot and cold, but were never much of a problem as he worked his 
way towards a double minor in Mechanical Engineering and Math. 
Don's ever ready smile and sincerity coupled with his extra- 
ordinary ability to make friends will insure his success in the years 
to come.

The 33rd Company — infamous throughout the Brigade as a result 
of our legendary Company Officer affectionately nicknamed JO-JO, 
YO-YO, or ratfink as the case may go. Thirty-six of us entered in the 
summer of 1965, most of us innocent and trusting in the "Navy 
Way", now twenty-four of us are left, all older and wiser and 
wondering "where the hell are we?" From Club 9 to 33 we never left 
an outstanding mark on the fields of academics or sports, but did 
manage to compile records on the size of our motor pool, legendary 
parties, and notorious thirst for anything alcoholic. We built many 
lasting friendships in the last four years, and the brotherhood will 
never forget the ties that bind us together wherever we may be.

^ * " • 


Vern came to the Academy from Marion Military Institute, 
where he spent a year preparing for the rigors of Academy life. A 
fine athlete, Vern decided in his first year to give up crew, his best 
sport, in order to devote more time to academics. A very 
determined student, he took on a heavy load to acquire a major in 
Operations Analysis. In his spare time, Vern, never ceased to enjoy 
life. Always the life of the party, he made life more enjoyable for 
those around him. He likes water skiing, drinking beer and is an 
accomplished dancer. Vern's pleasant personality, quick wit and 
sharp intellect will place him in high demand both as a friend and 
as a naval officer for years to come. 


John, who answers to the name of Hurt, came to us from 
Golden Colorado. An avid skier, John will be remembered not 
only for his athletic prowess but also for his academic triumphs. A 
"starman" from the beginning, his success could be attributed to 
his self-discipline, developed by visits to the weight room and 
yoga. His idea of a "chow package" was a few high protein pills 
and some honey. An outstanding defensive back for the "little 
blue". Hurt's escapades with the fair sex will long be a source of 
fond memories for all of us. John's mastery of the challenges of 
Plebe year can only lead us to predict an equally brilliant naval 


Tom arrived at Santee Pier a stranger to the seas, but it was not 
long before he had secured a spot for himself on the crew of the 
Freedom. An avid ocean sailor, Tom participated in the Newport- 
Bermuda race his third class summer. In addition to sailing, Tom's 
avid interest in water sports led him to positions on the batt 
swimming and water polo teams. In the field of academics, Tom 
excelled in French and gained a minor in Operations Analysis. 
Frequently seen at Sunday afternoon mixers, Tom's proficiency in 
dancing almost equaled his card playing ability. Tom holds a spot 
in the hearts of all his classmates, and he will long be remembered 
for his cheerful smile and amiable personality. 


Bill, better known as Brodes, came to the Academy from 
Cathedral Prep where he lettered in football, basketball and 
baseball. Once at Navy he continued to make his prowess on the 
football field felt by starring in company football. Academically 
Brodes burned through the books in his quest for a Math major 
and was consistently wearing stars in the process. In his search for 
an education Brodes is thinking about Nuclear Power School and 
subs where he will be able to put his ability to work miracles with 
numbers to bear. Around the wardroom Brodes always displayed 
his quick wit. With his sense of humor and logical mind the fleet is 
sure to benefit from the addition of Bill Coleman. 


Dick came to Annapolis as the favorite son of Boston's Hyde 
Park. Born and raised;there, he'sas genuinely Bostonian as baked 
beans and the Red Sox. (if you don't believe it, listen to him talk) 
While at the Academy, Dick was an eager participant in many 
activities and intramurals, of which Rugby was perhaps his 
favorite, as his scrapes and bruises testified. Four years of military 
living did nothing to dampen his pursuit of the finer things in life. 
And without being an anomaly he remained an artist in his own 
right. He is a true gentleman and his "... refined manners, 
punctilious courtesy and incest sense of personal honor" will make 
him a credit to the Naval Service. 



Despite four years at school, away from his beloved home, Joel 
has remained a true Alaskan. Better known to his friends as 
"Nanook", Joel is an avid outdoor sporting enthusiast which 
inevitably lead him to a summer at Jungle Warfare School in 
Panama. He has been a consistent member of the Dean's List, 
emerging from Navy with an excellent academic record and a 
major in Math. No matter how much studying there was to be 
done, however, old Nanook always found his way into the 
occasional company card game. His resourcefulness, quick think- 
ing and high intelligence promise him a bright future in the Naval 


After a year at Hillsdale College in Michigan where he was an 
active member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Bill, alias "Lil' 
Ball", transferred to USNA. He easily adjusted to the peculiarities 
of Academy life. Although "Lil' Ball" spent several hours listening 
to Plebe Spanish tapes, his interests were in the field of Chemistry. 
The aspiring chemist spent many extra hours in the laboratory. An 
excellent athlete in high school. Bill exhibited his athletic talents 
in battalion and company sports where he excelled in squash 
racquets. The future is bright for Bill, although nothing can stop 
him from talking about Detroit, the naval service will be gaining a 
dedicated and sincere officer. 


After high school. Bob traveled south from Hempstead, New 
York to come to the Academy. During his four years here, Bob 
did not let academics get him down as his many afternoons in the 
blue trampoline demonstrated. Even though he had a few beads of 
sweat first semester second class year, academics posed no real 
problems to him. Bob, a member of a rifle team in high school, 
brought his accurate eye to the Academy. Wintery Saturday 
afternoons found him competing, and in the hall Bob travelled 
with his Navy "N". He found time for the better things in life and 
never let a girl with a problem escape his advice. Bob will have no 
trouble with his future career. 


Howard, better known as "Buds," came to the Academy from 
Baldwin High in Pittsburgh. With stars and stripes in his eyes, he 
soon discovered the finer things in life. Not one to worry about 
regulations he could be found in Washington, D. C. on Saturday 
nights which according to the officers is further than seven miles. 
A good athlete, he was always found ripping apart the opponents 
in company football until fate struck him one day which required 
surgery on his right knee. Not one to complain he feels that he can 
still make the most of his mishap. Supply Corps Buds? Considered 
to be Admiral material if he rids himself of the "seed," we wish 
the "Buds" the best of luck in the future. 


Luigi comes to USNA from Bristol, Connecticut where he 
attended the University of Connecticut for two years. Bringing a 
little of the Univ. Conn, party spirit with him Lou was always the 
tension reliever around exam times with a good practical joke. 
With a keen insight for the numbers Lou served as company tutor 
in Mathematics never refusing anyone help no matter how busy he 
was. Lou always managed to budget his time so he would have a 
few extra minutes on Friday night to give a short trim around the 
ears to a few classmates. With his many abilities and talents along 
with his knack for good hard work, he is assured of success in 
whatever the future may place before him. 


Barely cooling his heels and brushing the dust off in Synnyvaie, 
California after a year in Argentina "Gaucho Honey" came to 
USNA "ready for bear." There were no bear but those delightful 
upperclass and academics combined to make his Plebe year a 
memorable one. Never one to be contained by four walls, Mike 
was always dedicating himself to think to compete with his study 
time like the Spanish Club, NAFAC and Big Brothers, Inc. On the 
athletic field "Honey" made good on the company soccer team 
and avidly became one of those mud covered bodies that rose 
from Farragut Field in the Spring, a rugger. Graduating a strong 
individual after four years of "the system", Mike should make a 
valuable contribution to the Navy team. 



Tom came to the Naval Academy after a year at Southern State 
College in Magnolia, Arkansas. Hailing from San Bernardino, 
California, Tom plunged straight into adapting to Maryland's 
fickle climate. While pursuing an Aerospace Engineering major, 
Tom has been a permanent member of the Dean's and Super- 
intendent's Lists. Not content with being a mainstay in company 
intramural sports, he was a welcome member of the Plebe fencing 
team and the battalion weightlifting and handball squads. As a 
result of his superior performance, Tom was selected to be a part 
of the Plebe Indoctrination Detail, and for a Canadian Foreign 
Exchange Crusie, Tom's ability to apply himself and do his best 
will guarantee his success in whatever he may choose. 


Dave is a member of the exclusive group hailing from Pitts- 
burgh, Pennsylvania. He came to the Academy and continued a 
very successful career which he began at St. George High School. 
He played Plebe and junior varsity basketball, in addition to 
maintaining a Supt's List average in his Foreign Affairs major. The 
only stumbling block to stars came when negotiating his En- 
gineering courses. In pursuit of his interest in the English, History 
and Government Department, Dave was an avid participant in the 
Foreign Affairs Club and the annual Naval Academy Foreign 
Affairs Conference. His slightly mischievous and piercingly ef- 
fective wit and easy going sense of humor enlivened many study 
hours for his classmates. 


Ed, better known as Stroke, has been a cheerful addition to the 
Brigade. His procrastination, forgetfulness, weightlifting, sleepiness 
and Corvette-itis caused much laughter, but he always had a 
comeback. Stroke came to USNA from Grove City College with 
F-4's in his eyes, but because of his eyes he has turned to the 
Marine Green. An expert marksman, Ed has continually stood high 
in the annual pistol competition, along with high scoring in 
fieldball. Ed's love of car machinery has led him to a Mechanical 
Engineering concentration and a consistent spot on the Supt's 
List. All in all. Stroke will be remembered by all as a unique 
member of the Brigade. 


Jim, the man of many names, has been an inspiration to the 
professionalism of his classmates. His consistently good appear- 
ance always left everyone in awe, along with his unbelievable 
ability to consume tremendous quantities of food. Sarah, as 
known by many, came to us from the ranch like life of California 
but quickly adapted to the rigor of USNA. With his superb athletic 
ability and his knack for Engineering, he excelled in company 
football and attained a Mechanical Engineering minor. Sarah was 
often seen burning the midnight oil either hitting the books or 
shuffling the deck. With his great love for the Naval Service, it is 
hard to imagine the heights that Jim will attain in his future years. 


Frank, hailing from New Haven, Connecticut immediately 
displayed his great sense of humor from the outset of Plebe 
Summer. His flashy smile and cheery attitude coupled with 
athletic prowess have won Frank many close friends, both male 
and female. Frank's varied interests at Navy have included danc- 
ing. Mathematics, football, golf, soccer and cheering for the Big 
Blue Team. Afternoons, when not in the pad, studying or on the 
athletic field, Frank could be found dominating any bull session or 
perhaps even throwing a classmate in the shower. Frank's personal 
pride and integrity have marked him as an outstanding midship- 
man. Highly motivated to do well in all he pursues, and eager to 
make friends, Frank is set for a rewarding Naval Career. 


Bouncing into Mother Bancroft from the rubber capitol of the 
world. Ken brought with him an outstanding scholastic and 
athletic record. His eventful high school career pictured Ken as 
captain of undefeated football team. President of the Varsity "C" 
Club, outstanding senior boy and outstanding athlete. Besides all 
of this, Ken brought to the Academy his tenacious attitude which 
proved to be the key to success. His sundry abilities helped him 
gain the respect of the scholars as well as the athletes. His 
contributions to his company were invaluable, always being an 
asset in company sports and lending a helping hand to classmates 
during exams. Whatever obstacles lie ahead in Ken's future will be 
met with a paramount of success. ^^^ 


Hailing from the streets of Pittsburgh, Jim, known as Max, 
usually has a warm smile and friendly greeting for everyone he 
meets. Jim is a hard worker with a lot of determination. His 
athletic prowess and scholastic achievement have proven this. The 
Dean's and Supt's Lists were not unfamiliar to him. One of the 
best athletes in the good ol' ninth or thirty-third. Max pursued 
lacrosse, football, basketball and even joined the Scuba Club. In 
his spare time. Max took active part in certain Christian activities 
such as NACA and OCU, and was a member of W3AD0. No 
matter what walk of life Jim decides upon, he will find prosperity 
and happiness. 


Swinging in from the bad lands of Jackson, Ohio Bye-Bye spent 
many hours gaining the respect of his Plebe summer squad leaders. 
Plebe year was exciting and by devious means held an education 
which consisted of his regular academics as well as the New York 
Stock Exchange and an outstanding course in shoe shining. Besides 
spending much of his free time on the golf course, Mitch readily 
adapted himself to Navy life. Plebe sailing. Youngster Cruise and 
Second Class Cruise proved to be no obstacle for the midwestern 
land-lubber. Mitch excelled in a variety of company and battalion 
sports, proving his abilities from batt squash to company softball. 
His perserverance, persistence and tenacity shall pave Mitch's road 
of success. 


Being an Air Force brat. Bob has called many places home 
Having previously attended New Mexico Military Institute, Bob 
had no trouble adjusting to the military discipline at Navy. Alway; 
an ardent fan of water sports. Bob spent many hours in the 
Natatorium as a member of the Plebe swimming team and varsity 
swimming team manager. Aerospace Engineering was Bob's choser 
field of study, and through much hard and many beads of sweat, 
he was a frequent member of the Supt's List. Between studies and 
athletic endeavors, Bob devoted much of his time to his favorite 
occupations of photography and flying. Bob's friendly personality 
and his ability to apply himself to any situation will guarantee his 
success in whatever branch of service he chooses. 


George arrived in Annapolis to begin his naval career after a 
short drive down John Hansen Highway from Silver Spring where 
he had attended Montgomery Blair High School. Already an old 
salt, having first sailed at twelve, George rapidly became involved 
in the Sailing Squadron. He gained a yawl command as a 
Youngster and has represented the Naval Academy in the world 
famous Bermuda Race. Many was the night when his Weapons 
minor suffered in favor of nautical conversation with his ship- 
mates. George was a member of the varsity rifle team, possibly as a 
deterent to Corsairs on the high seas. Not lacking in the social 
graces, George was also an energetic member of the Hop Com- 



Jerry came to USNA after two years in the Navy and another at 
NAPS — Plebe Summer he survived better than most of us, 
however, and spent his remianing years here making up for lost 
time — both at the books and in the pad. Despite various 
misunderstandings with the academic departments, "The Wop," 
always managed to keep his Italian head above water and became 
well known for his uncanny ability to bounce back for more. Well 
adapted to military life, he was always one of the leaders. Always 
ready with a quick line — and a quicker smile — Jerry is the kind 
of friend we will always value and look forward to seeing in our 
future years in the service. 


Gregg's decision to come to the Naval Academy after his 
freshman year at St. Louis University proved a loss for Busch 
Stadium. Upon entering the hallowed halls of Mother B he 
immediately made his mark by validating most of his courses in 
order to pursue a mathematically and scientifically oriented 
program. Pumpkin knew when to work and when to play, doing 
both with great gusto. Turnin' and burnin' late at night brought 
him those stars which he never seems to be without. Numerous 
afternoons finds him in the weight room throwing around the bar, 
or in his room throwing around his roommate. His dedication and 
energetic resourcefulness will remain with him, no doubt, through- 
out his career in the naval service. 


Ed, alias Semi, is Cincinnati, Ohio's gift to the Naval Academy. 
Coming to Navy with a full year at the University of Cincinnati, 
Semi developed study habits that allotted most of his time to 
writing letters and poetry to various "acquaintances." But, a few 
moments of concentration a night with his celebrated brain has 
resulted in seldom paralleled achievements of frequent "4.0's" and 
a Trident Scholarship. Afternoons, Semi could be found either 
knocking down fieldball opponents, or limping to his favorite 
p-rade vantage point — a Navy yawl. Because of a personality that 
boasts an enjoyable combination of teasing and sincerity, his 
amazing intelligence, and a latent desire to be a "lifer," Semi will 
undoubtedly be the finest of naval officers. 


Scotty, as he was known to his friends, though diminutive in 
stature, will always loom larger than life in the memories of his 
classmates. Don chose Aerospace Engineering as his field of 
interest, and the midnight oil burned frequently in his battle with 
the Bull Department. Undaunted from his yearly skirmish with the 
shark infested waters of the Natatorium he was very active in the 
Jucie Gang, the AIAA and the Newman Club. Don is one of the 
proud wearers of the silver wings awarded to qualified parachute 
jumpers. Don has always been motivated to succeed in whatever 
he undertakes, and as such will make an officer whom we will all 
be proud of having known and served with. 


Glenn, known as Whales, could be characterized by a perpetual 
smile, a warm greeting, and a friendly handshake. Strong in his 
faith and his desire to help his fellowman, Glenn was very active in 
Youth for Christ, the Naval Academy Christian Association and 
the Officer's Christian Union. And, each Saturday you could find 
him in town working with the youth of Annapolis. Glenn, a 
devoted student, achieved Dean's List each semester in the very 
difficult Physics program. Each summer in his quest to meet 
people, Glenn became somewhat of a vagabond. Traveling across 
and out of the country. He always returned with exciting ex- 
periences to talk about. Glenn will always be able to look back at 
his four years with much pride and satisfaction.

The 34th Company '69ers began their college years at Annapolis, 
thirty-six strong, with ol' 10th Company on that gloomy June day we 
remember so well, four years ago. That first summer of normal 
enlightenment, thorough indoctrination, and vigorous exercise united 
us in the great comradery of plebehood. Inspired we were, with an 
esprit de corps which held us together through the trials of plebe year, 
including a full dress blue review for most of us at Christmas, before 
our family and friends at home. We missed colors by a hair that year, 
but as Youngsters, we became more casual, seeking satisfaction in the 
reverberations of our stereo amplifiers. Second Class year brought us 
to the 34th Company, headed by an outstanding Marine. Here we 
developed more sophisticated pastimes. One famous position of our 
crew, keeping in step with the times, sprouted flowers and beads, 
genetic corn, and Grass; consequently winning free tickets home, 
compliments of ONI. New recruits restored our ranks that Spring, but 
only fifteen veterans of Terrible Ten will make the June Fling. Our 
percentage-look to your left, look to your right, if you're here, they— 
59.5% aren't.

Mario, or Bags as he is known by most of his friends, hails fronn 
Dennison, Ohio. With three years at Linsly IVlilitary Insititue as a 
military background, Bags met the Academy requirements with 
ease. He displayed a lively personality even though many times he 
was called on to do tasks that were required of him as a striper. He 
found little trouble with the academic department and could 
occasionally be seen wearing stars while being a perennial member 
of the Supt's List. The only difficulty he ever encountered was 
when he entered the Natatorium, but he always came out okay. 
With his personality, pep, and cheerfulness success is sure to greet 
Bags in his career in the service. 


Barbs came to USNA from Edison High School in Alexandria, 
Virgmia. Coming from a Navy family, he was used to extensive 
traveling and constant changes. As a result. Barbs had that lively 
personality that is characterized in a Navy junior. Plebe year found 
Barbs a long time guest in the hospital. Being a lover of good times 
and freedom. Barbs was one of the first off on liberty. He could 
always be counted on for a good joke or a helping hand when it 
was needed. His sincerity, although often hidden by his outgoing 
attitude, was ever present in his friendships. Whatever branch of 
the service Barbs decides to enter, he will offer an enviable sense 
of desire and determination. 


Terry came to USNA from New Kensington, Pennsylvania 
where he was a member of various school bands and the Key Club. 
Terry followed his musical inclinations and became a member of 
both the Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps and the Concert 
Band. Terry devoted many long hours of hard work to these two 
organizations. He contributed greatly to many of the half-time 
shows for which the D & B is so well known. Apart from his 
musical endeavors Terry still found time to compete in the 
intramural sports of lightweight football, squash, and softball. I'm 
sure Terry will become a fine naval officer because he possesses 
the desire and the will to work hard and get any job done. 


Greg calls Lincoln Park, New Jersey home, although the ski 
slopes and the shore claimed a sizeable part of his leaves. He 
renowned himself with his skiing ability Plebe year, and with his 
love for the pad time the other three years. He got a head start on 
the "system" in the enlisted Navy and at NAPS. Brownie could be 
found afternoons soaking up the sun with the Sailing Squadron 
and up front in the Chapel Choir on Sundays. Amiable and 
outgoing, he was always a hit in Philadelphia at the Army game 
where he would arrive at the march-on with an overcoat full of 
goodies for his classmates. Greg's friendly personality and deter- 
mined attitude should insure him a successful career in the Navy. 



Although he came fresh out of Perry Hall High School in 
Baltimore, Wayne managed to validate most of Plebe year and 
since then, has made practically every Dean's List. Wayne soon 
became well known, not only for his willing academic help, but 
for the good times to be had with him — June Week pool parties 
and ski trips, to mention a few. A strong competitor on the 
lacrosse field and a good eye for the girls further attest to Wayne's 
wide diversity of interests. His easy going manner and great ability 
will set Wayne well on his way in whatever career he chooses. 


Tom, a Navy junior from Alexandria, Virginia, is one of the 
more effervescent personalities of the class, adding that extra bit 
of humor to each day that makes weekends come that much 
sooner whether it be in performing his ritual pre-weekend dance or 
celebrating the end of a six "l\l" day. A former member of the 
31st Company, Tom moved to the 34th Company "housekeeping" 
as Company Sub-Commander. When it comes to academics he is a 
diligent worker who, by putting forth that extra sweat when it 
comes to exams, has managed to maintain a fine scholastic 
average. Tom's vibrant personality and drive will assure him of 
success upon graduation. 


The son of an Academy graduate, Jim entered with a better 
than average knowledge of what to expect from life at USNA. 
With a keen mind, he found plenty of free time to devote to 
devising new ideas to make life more comfortable and interesting 
for himself as well as his classmates. Whatever time wasn't devoted 
to his first love — varsity crew — went to his second, Georgia and 
all possible means of spending as much time as was available there. 
Other moments found him either sitting in deep thought or taking 
more leisurely advantage of the time which early validation upon 
entrance had granted him. His future in the service will be at the 
least exciting and varied. 


Rick came to Navy from the hallowed halls of Punxsutawney 
Area High School, where he was an outstanding football and 
basketball player. Since his arrival at the Academy, "Norman", as 
he is known by his close friends, has carried his athletic prowess 
into the realm of 150 lb. football and company basketball. 
Academic life didn't always agree with "Norman", but it never got 
him down and he always did his best in work and play, parti- 
cularly the latter. An easy going manner and keen sense of humor 
made Norman the hit of any party. Rick's greatest attributes are 
his personality, confidence and ability to get things done. Rick 
will be an outstanding naval officer and a welcome member of any 


Coming to us from Charlotte, North Carolina after high school 
graduation, Jerry quickly adapted to life at the Naval Academy. 
Starting Plebe year, he entered into many extracurricular activities 
which took valuable study and rack time. Even so, Gerry partici- 
pated in intramural football, fieldball and obtained a command 
qualification for the Academy yawls. Although many a weekend 
found him researching a term paper for his E. H. & G major, he 
did manage to find a few weekends to devote to the fairer sex. 
Jerry's amiable personality and fine character will definitely lead 
him to be one of the finer line officers in the fleet. 



Chip came to USNA from Delmar, New York where in high 
school he lettered in football, baseball and basketball. He con- 
tinued his athletic career at IMavy by playing varsity baseball and 
football. Chip was liked and respected by all his classmates from 
the start. The confidence they held in him was shown when he was 
elected vice president of the "N" Club. He proved himself to be a 
hard worker by his long hours spent on the class policy committee 
and fulfilling his duties as a Company Commander. Chip accom- 
plished all the tasks given him with great success and there is no 
doubt he will become an outstanding officer and a credit to the 
naval service. 


Jerry came into Navy life from Smyrna, New York. While at 
the Academy he sang in the Antiphonal Choir and excelled at 
Brigade boxing as well as other activities. He was often charac- 
terized by a certain benign cynicism bred in part by his four year 
running battle laundry, press shop and academic departments, but 
this was not to belie his resolution and ability to hang in there in 
the face of adversity. Jerry's profeiciency with the parallel rulers 
and dividers earned him the title of "Prince Henry the Navigator", 
but his wit, wisdom and sound judgment will contribute most to 
his success in the service. 


Dave, a Navy junior, calls Wilmington, North Carolina home. 
He could usually be found manning one of the Navy yawls out on 
the Chesapeake or playing a quick round of tennis or squash. He 
also kept the radios going in the ham shack where he put his 
Electrical Science studies to good use. He had no trouble keeping 
his pad in shape or leaving all his possessions around the yard. His 
contact with the academic world was an undying mystery, a 
problem he tried to solve with his 4 a.m. reveilles. His pleasant 
attitude and congenial smile will be a welcome asset to the Navy. 


Tim came to the Academy from Wheeling, West Virginia. To 
those of us who knew Tim, nothing is called to mind more vividly 
than his genuinely sincere manner and congenial personality. His 
easy going way often got him into problems in the academic 
department, but even here he showed that nothing is impossible. 
In his athletic endeavors Tim has been looked upon as a "Jack of 
all trades." However, he has mastered quite a few of them, such as 
company basketball, softball and volleyball. It is quite safe to say 
that Tim will succeed as an outstanding naval officer, for his firm 
yet polite demeanor will carry him through even the most 
challenging of problems. 



A hillbilly at heart, Owen left his native North Carolina hills for 
a rewarding career at the Naval Academy. Though he spent the 
greater part of Plebe summer learning the fundamentals of march- 
ing, he thereafter had little difficulty in adapting to the rigors of 
Academy life. Never one to let academics interfere with the finer 
things of life, Owen was known to complete Skinny labs without 
leaving the confines of "Mother B." He never encountered a 
problem so great that it could not be solved by spending a few 
hours in the pad or a pain so intense that it could not be soothed 
by listening to his beloved stereophonic "soul sounds." His 
cheerfulness, sense of humor and determination, should insure a 
successful service career. Owen definitely has the potential to 
become an outstanding officer and perhaps one day a gentleman 
of sports. 


Gary came to Navy after a year at University of Massachusetts 
and found things quite different from that fun-loving civilian 
school. Adjustment came quickly, for his warm smile and cheerful 
"Hello" led to many a close friendship. His year at University of 
Mass. provided quite an asset also, leading to fine grades and a 
major in Systems Engineering. Although Gary's time at the 
Natatorium was exciting, his real forte' shines through under sail, 
in anything from a dinghy to "The Freedom." We're sure that 
Gary's personality and ability to make friends will serve him well 
in the years to come. 


Ron came straight out of the soft life of high school in Decatur, 
Georgia to the harsh reality of the Academy. While in high school, 
"Mose", as he is affectionately called by his friends, was an 
exceptional football and baseball star. His natural ability coupled 
with desire led him to become captain of the 150 lb. football team 
and a three time all-league center. When Ron wasn't worrying 
about his lengthy locks being clipped, he was deciding which 
lovely damsel he would be escorting on the weekend. While not a 
Trident Scholar, "Mose" was never in academic trouble and could 
be counted on to help his classmates. Whichever branch Ron 
chooses, he will be a fine leader and a valuable asset. 


Hailing from Wauchula, Florida and graduating number one in 
his class, Ron ignored several scholarship offers to enter the Naval 
Academy. He soon proved that he knew a great deal about 
professional subjects, springing from a boyhood desire to learn as 
much as possible about the great men of history. Ron had no 
problem with academics and his Oceanography major and he 
constantly gave extra instruction to his classmates. Ron has the 
highest sense of personal honor and integrity and is never afraid to 
stand up for what he believes. Although a qualified Army 
parachutist, Ron hopes his aviation training at Pensacola will be 
good enough to relieve him of his Army found knowledge. 


Mike came to the Naval Academy straight from the hills of 
Kentucky after graduation from high school. Plebe summer he 
adjusted to Navy life, but many of his classmates say his biggest 
problem was learning to wear shoes. His first love is flying and he 
pursued this goal by studying for a major in Aerospace Engineer- 
ing. First class year he was President of the USNA chapter of the 
A! AA. Mike's musical talents found an outlet in the D & B, and his 
conviction that "anything worth doing is worth doing right" will 
make him a fine leader in the naval service. 


Hailing from the Lone Star State, Bill traded the cotton fields 
back home for the p-rade field at Navy. But this was short-lived 
because he soon found he was better suited for the football field 
and went on to be an outstanding player for the varsity football 
team. His name frequently appeared on the Supt's mailing list but 
he always managed to escape a personal appearance. He was 
always easy to find during his free periods, being a firm believer in 
the theory that no problem is so big that you can't sleep on it. 
With his friendly nature and easygoing personality. Bill will go far 
in any venture he undertakes. 



Mike, a born and bred Navy junior, came to the shores of the 
Severn from Florida right after graduation from high school. 
Making the transition from civilian to Plebe seem harder than it 
really was, he rose to the occasion and has since compiled an 
enviable record. An avid sports fan, Mike ran cross country and 
track his Plebe year but later switched his interest towards 
company sports. Not one to let academics slide, he could often be 
found giving or receiving the "gouge" the night before a big exam. 
The method worked as Mike's name frequently could be found on 
the Supt's List. With his easy going manner and enthusiasm for the 
service, Mike seems assured of success as a naval officer. 


Bob abandoned the Army life his father had chosen and came 
to the Naval Academy from Fort Monroe, Virginia. The fact that 
Bob was on the Supt's list for one semester showed the academic 
potential he owns. He possesses that rare gift for leadership as 
shown by his excellent job as a member of the Plebe Detail. Bob's 
classmates voted him Class and Honor Representative for two 
years. A good natural athlete. Bob participated in volleyball, 
fieldball and Softball for three years. Bob will surely succeed in his 
two ambitions: to serve his country well and to get another 


Al, often called "Alvin" for short by his close friends, came to 
the Naval Academy from Wellesley, Massachusetts to pursue a long 
time interest in ships and the sea. Enthusiastic about almost 
anything that floats from dinghies to dreadnoughts, he has been a 
member of the Plebe and varsity sailing teams and the Midshipman 
Sailing Squadron and entertains dreams of being an old line 
battleship officer. Although occasionally at odds with some of the 
more technical courses, he usually manages to stay ahead by 
getting pleanty of sleep before exams. But a keen interest in the 
seagoing Navy more than compensates for any lack of academic 
enthusiasm and should contribute to ultimate success in the fleet. 


Moses Lake, Washington Is home to Bob but he calls the entire 
Pacific Northwest his playground. Quick witted and always 
friendly. Bob never lacked friends among the Brigade. He was a 
fierce competitor on the athletic field and sparked many company 
teams in spite of recurring injuries. Among his favorite activities 
were sleeping and sitting in on a game of cards. Academics posed 
little or no problem to Bob but he was first to admit that study 
was not his favorite pastime. Bob's outgoing personality and solid 
logic made him a favorite of those who sought advice. These 
qualities will enable Bob to succeed in his chosen career and make 
him a welcome addition to the Naval Service.

Thirty-five returned to a new company officer, and he turned out 
to be the Army exchange officer. This made "Army" build-up all the 
more fun (and work), as various items of interest turned up in his 
office (like torpedoes), or his office turned up in interesting places 
(like Michelson Hall). In sports 35 didn't win anything, but they had a 
lot of fun. In varsity sports, however, men from 35 were big in most 
sports. ECA's also were well supported by this company with 4 ECA 
presidents. 35 was the well rounded company.

Johnny, an Army brat, crossed service lines when he turned 
down an appointment to West Point to come to Navy. John's love 
for athletics covers a wide range of sports and he excelled in 
football, baseball, basketball and handball on intramural and 
intercollegiate levels. We didn't see much of John the first part of 
Youngster year — he was playing 150 lb. football. He probably 
holds the four year cumulative weight loss record, as he was 
always on some sort of diet. The second Yankee Clipper from San 
Francisisco, his room was always full of friends and patrons alike. 
John's friendly and outgoing personality is sure to be his biggest 
asset in the Naval Service. 


"Nub" came to the Naval Academy only to do post-graduate 
work because he learned everything which was worth knowing in 
the eighth grade. However, all of us benefitted from his vast 
knowledge. Hugh, being the son of a Navy fighter pilot, knew 
more about the F-4 than McDonnell himself. Nash seldom com- 
peted in company sports since he was always out for the varsity 
swimming team. Fiercely competitive, he drove himself to his 
maximum and we learned to expect nothing less. After we built 
the Batten farm, which was located outside the thriving metropolis 
of Taneytown, Maryland, it was used as our hangout, if we didn't 
run out of gas on the way there. Hugh will go Navy Air — Is there 
anything else? 

x^. ''"'S^' 


I should not like to have a biography written about myself; 
rather, I will use a quote from Goncharov's Oblomov to record my 
thoughts upon graduating. Assume that I am addressing USNA: 
"You will be frightened of the dawn of new happiness; it will hurt 
your eyes that are unaccustomed to the bright light. But I shall 
lead your Audrey to where you would not go, and I will carry out 
your youthful dreams together with him. Good-bye, old Oblo- 
movkal' [I] said, looking back for the last time at the windows of 
the little house. 'You've had your day'" 


"Chafes," the fastest amtrack on two legs, distinguished himself 
quickly when it was found that they didn't make leggings large 
enough to fit him. Eventually, they cut up an old seabag and told 
him to make his own. For three years, Mike's booming voice and 
the sound of the Bitter Ends were the most popular at the 
Academy. A native of Shellbyville, Indiana, his avid enthusiasm 
for his management courses was only equalled by his interest in 
sports, particularly weightlifting for which he was known through- 
out the Academy. Spring would find Mike running sprints and 
putting the shot for the batt track team. An energetic and capable 
leader, he will be welcomed anywhere in the Navy. 


Upon graduation from Berner High School in New York, 
Denny turned down several scholarships and decided to come to 
Navy. Here he divided his interests among sports, reading and 
sleeping, but more often than not, the latter dominated. Denny 
played lacrosse and won his varsity letter as a Youngster. His 
determination and physical ability in competition have always 
made him a winner. As a member of the Plebe Detail, as a 
motivator of company spirit, and as a man always ready to help 
peer and subordinate alike, he has won the respect and friendship 
of all. Although always the first person to say "Yes" when the 
word party was mentioned, those of us close to him knew him as a 
deeply motivated, hard-working person, and, more importantly, a 
sincere friend. LAWRENCE F. DIDDLEMEYER 

Dids came to the Academy via NAPS and the Marine Corps. 
With this background he had no trouble adjusting to the life of a 
midshipman. Besides being an industrious worker Larry could also 
be the life of the party. I doubt if anyone will forget Army, Plebe 
year. Being Vice-President of the art and Printing Club, he was one 
of the mainstays of the organization. On the intramural scene Dids 
could be seen playing football in the fall, Softball in the spring and 
in the pad in between. Calling Pasadena, Maryland his home he 
was only a hop, skip and a jump from the T.V. and a few tall cool 
ones. His cheerful, hard-working attitude should assure success in 

the Navy. 



When "Dols" left for the Academy from his hometown of 
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, he brought with him a keen sense of 
personal desire and enthusiasm. His good nature and organiza- 
tional ability soon won him a position as company Social Director. 
When Jim is not engaged at coordinating company activities, he 
devotes his time to Political Science and sailing. His special interest 
in athletics has gained him a reputation as a fine competitor and 
avid fan. Winter's first snow finds him heading for the slopes with 
his skis. Whatever challenges Jim meets after graduation, his desire 
and enthusiasm will insure his success. 


Dave, a Navy junior who joined the Naval Reserve while still in 
high school, entered the Academy via that route. Having had three 
addresses since Plebe summer, it's anybody's guess where "Otis" 
will call home tomorrow. A slide rule jockey who needs a 
dictionary to write a letter home, he elected to follow an 
Aerospace Engineering minor program in his attempt to avoid the 
Bull Department. Being by no means the kind of person to spend 
all of his time studying, Otis played batt handball and other 
battalion sports to occupy his afternoons. His maturity and good 
judgment enable Dave to accept the challenges that face him and 
make the best of whatever comes his way. 


Hailing from that famous city of Sarasota, Florida the "Gears" 
or"Bobbi", as he is known to les femmes, quickly established 
himself as a Dean's List resident and a company stalwart on the 
lightweight football team. Bob's increased academic load towards 
his Ops major and Math minor caused him to relinquish his better 
golfing days when he was Florida Junior 4-Ball Champ. Despite his 
duties as Spanish Club, class and Honor Rep., Bob never failed to 
respond to the cry of E.I. He was well-known for his company 
gouge sessions in the Black Magic Art of Nav. Ops. Looking to the 
future, he has decided to cash in his "Sunbeam Alpine" for a 
career in the United States Marine Corps. 


Calling the Land of Lincoln home, Jerry entered the Academy 
after one year at Lafayette College where he was a member of 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. Jerry adapted to the change and 
launched a colorful career at Navy. A true lover of p-rades, the 
"mouse" joined the Sailing Squadron during Plebe year. In the off 
season one could find him working hard for the batt handball 
team or working out on the blue trampoline. Extracurricular 
activities found him dividing time between Spanish Club trips and 
the Catholic Choir. The life of every party, Jerome D was always 
there with a cheerful smile. His ingenuity and intelligence will 
undoubtedly add up to an outstanding career in the service. 



Steve ("the Kupes") hails from the tiny town of Putnam, 
Conneticut, but to hear him talk, Putnam is no minute village. 
Coming from a strictly "Navy" family, he was well prepared for 
the exacting discipline that we experienced while at the Academy. 
As President of the Art & Printing Club for two years, Steve ran an 
efficient system which produced annually up to 5,000 posters for 
the Army-Navy football game. Also included in his work was 
providing posters for other sporting events, concerts, plays and 
dances. His experience from direction of this club will undoubt- 
edly aid him in becoming one of the finest officers provided by 
the Class of '69 to the fleet. 


Bob came to the Academy from Norfolk, Virginia where he 
excelled as a horseman, an interest which shall always be a favorite 
pastime for him. Bob's bubbling enthusiasm never left him at a 
loss to put down his work and help a classmate. Bob would 
attribute his joy to his personal faith in Jesus Christ. Fondest In 
Bob's memories of Annapolis will be those times spent with a 
certain Crabtown female. Bob's professional interests and his 
excellent performance as four year member of the YP Squadron 
will add much to the energies and abilities which will make him a 
truly outstanding surface line officer. 


Tackling Plebe year and life at USNA was no problem for 
"Weezer" as he brought that fighting Sooner spirit through all four 
of his years. From the athletic fields, where he participated in the 
tougher contact sports of soccer, rugby and lightweight football to 
his nightly wrestling bouts, Bob's dynamic personality endeared 
him to all. His Chemistry major induced many academic anxieties, 
and many hours of hard work (and a few in the PAD), but have 
resulted in a graduate destined to a fine, rewarding career in the 
service of his country. 


Coming from Texas, Bob never tires of talking —about Texas. 
Other than weekly haircuts and having to wear shoes 20 hours a 
day, Mac made a painless transition into military life. Boundless 
energy coupled with strong vocal chords have earned him the 
postilon of Head Cheerleader for the '68-'69 season. His easy going 
style has carried him through the first three years and should last 
him another. After graduation. Bob has plans for Navy Air. This 
desire was no doubt substantiated by a very enjoyable summer In 
Pensacola and Jacksonville. All things considered, Mac should 
prove to be a popular member at the O' Clubs. 


Bill is a master at the art of good humor. Seldom is one not 
greeted with a smile and the characteristic handshake he offers. 
Upon returning from Youngster cruise. Bear hybernated for a 
year, went from his slim 195 to a somewhat larger figure and not 
until the end of second class year did he recover from all that 
sleep. However, the company didn't lose any parties because of 
lack of participation on Bill's part. Intensely proud of being a 
Navy junior and of his high degree of professionalism, it looks like 
he's a lifer — . He's going subs but will It stay down. 


The "Marsh" has been a prominent man on the '69 scene since 
Plebe year when he was one of the backbones of the "tiger" 1 1 th 
Pledges. He has a rare balance of determination and frivolity as can 
be attested to by his stars, Supt's List and multi-stripes, on the 
first part, and by anyone who has ever seen him at a party on the 
second. He has always been a hard worker, expecting the most of 
those under him as well as of himself. One of the most loyal 
friends there is. Navy Air has first choice on this young man and 
then It will probably be F-4's, and to wherever F-4's are needed. 



George, a native of Wilmette, Illinois, brought to the Academy 
a sharp competitive spirit and a desire to succeed. His high school 
days were divided by allegiances to the Chicago Bears and Cubs. In 
four years George has distinguished himself both on and off the 
athletic field. Besides his B. S., he is pursuing a minor in Political 
Science. He is a natural leader, which was quickly recognized by 
his classmates who were exposed to his enthusiasm and devotion 
to duty. Athletically, George has excelled as a varsity linebacker 
and defenseman on football and lacrosse respectively. Upon 
graduation, the Navy will find in George one of the finest officers 
the Academy has vet produced. 


Few people has ever heard of Nanty-Glo until Andy appeared 
from the hills of Pennsylvania to make that little coal town 
famous. After graduating from his small town high school and 
having been voted "most intellectual," Andy did an abrupt 180 
and was voted by the Academic Board "most likely to leave." He 
turned much of his frustrations to sports with one goal in mind, to 
play on a varsity team. He never quite made the big team but did 
take an active part in the rougher contact intramural sports — 
football, fieldball and lacrosse. Andy's likeable personality, ambi- 
tion and perserverance will surely help him become an outstanding 
officer and make the folks back home proud. 


A Texan in the true sense of the word, Fred came to Navy from 
Texas Military Institute in San Antonio. He quickly put his 
military training to good use by giving E. I. in spit shines during 
Plebe year. But "Pose" was still tied to a more carefree civilian life 
by the strings of his booming base guitar. His fame as a member of 
the "Bitter Ends" is surpassed only by his famous adventures with 
the fair sex. As a rugged intramural competitor or struggling Math 
minor, Fred will always be remembered for his desire for per- 
fection and his cheerful disposition. His enthusiasm, ability and 
easy nature are sure to bring him future success. 


Bringing his "coal cracker" accent to the Academy from 
Minersville Area High School via Bullis Prep, Chuck was well 
prepared for Navy life before entering. In the academic depart- 
ment, his love for Management courses was balanced by the 
frustration of his year long battle with wires. Only perserverance 
and quite a bit of luck guided him through the "Magical Mystery 
Tour." Each Fall found him cheerfully losing twenty pounds each 
week to make weight for the 150 lb. football team. These 
determined efforts and his skillful quarterbacking won him an N 
star. Always ready to lend a helping hand, and a sympathetica! ear 
— that's Chuck. His aspirations are great, as are his capabilities. 



Les, hailing from Santa Rosa, California, but calling the 
Norfolk area 'home' is a man of many talents. Before coming to 
Navy, Les was doing well as a music major at Frederick College 
but it was the USNA Weapons Department where he discovered 
his true calling. "The Computerized Wonder" is an avid sailor and 
handball player as well as a master of circuitry. Lock picking, 
window-closer-booby trapping and gin rummy. With his many- 
faceted background, Les has found many friends among members 
of the officer corps and the opposite sex who recognize in him the 
soul of an individualist with a zest for living and for the naval 


Joseph Charles Rieth goes by the alias of Pete (!) and hails from 
San Francisco. Pete really loves the sea (despite four years at the 
Academy to tame him). He has been on boats as long as he has 
been here, rowing crew for a while and knocking around the 
Chesapeake on the yawls since Plebe year. Pete's second love, girls 
excluded, is the language of his ancestors — German. He was 
secretary of the German Club as a Youngster and visited Germany 
in '68. An individualist and lover of motorcycles, faded levis, 
electric music and slender blondes, Pete's interests after graduation 
again will turn to the sea — this time beneath the surface. 



It did not take more than a shotgun to convince John to come 
to the Naval Academy. In high school "Tolms" always stood 
above his classmates as an Ail-American eager. John captained the 
basketball at Navy and set several Navy records. Scholastically 
"Tolms" spends his time in the Mahan Chemistry labs alternating 
between alter-egos of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Out of the class- 
rooms and off the court Tolm's friends quickly recognized his 
attributes are cheerfulness, thrift, braveness, cleanliness and rever- 
ence and to think he was never a Boy Scout. 


Under indictment in Quincy, Massachusetts, Lang came to the 
Naval Academy on what then looked like a reprieve. Lang, the 
student, and Lang, the athlete, excelled equally on and off the 
field. Starting linebacker on the Big Blue Team, Lang was known 
for his crushing tackles and split second reflexes. As a student he 
studied Economics. His desire to serve his country brought Lang 
here and his love of the Academy and the Naval Service has 
achieved for him a knowledge of the service and performance of 
duty which is nonparallel. Those who have spent four years with 
Lang will forget much of the Academy world but not of Lang!

Whether the rubber from the wheels of a squeaky A-4 or from a 
screaming "vette", the Thirty-Sixth Company Class of Sixty-Nine has 
left its mark on USNA. The Sixty-Niners from Thirty-Six spent their 
fledgling years in the austere atmosphere of the "terrible twelfth". 
From this auspicious beginning, the class proceeded to bigger and 
better things. Based in the 8th Wing, it spread its control to the 
Brigade, the Drum and Bugle Corps, three clubs, one varsity sport, and 
numerous watering holes in the local Maryland countryside. In the 
near future, it expects to continue this process in the fleet and its 
ports of call.

Tom hails from Potomac, Maryland. Affectionately known as 
"Butts", Tom entered the Naval Academy right out of high school 
but found no trouble with Plebe year. His fiery competitiveness 
earned him the nickname "Mad Dog Butler" throughout the 
company and also a reputation on the gridiron. He played three 
years of varsity football and a year of Plebe lacrosse. Never one to 
let the "system" get to him, Tom always made ample time for the 
finer things in life. His natural leadership talents will be a definite 
asset to the Navy and certain to make Tom a great success in the 


Known to his classmates as "Wop" or "Cav", Larry forsook a 
career at Colorado's version of Disneyland and on the sunny 
beaches near his hometown of Shrewsbury, New Jersey to join the 
Men of Annapolis. His quick wit and Italian charm have made 
Larry a popular member of the Brigade, while his avid love for the 
"Soul Sound" played extra loud has endeared him to the many 
Plebes who have lived next door. Never one to shun the books or 
company activities, Larry has been a fierce competitor on the 
company football and Softball teams, all the while maintaining a 
3.8 academic average and pursuing a major in Applied Mathe- 
matics. We are sure Larry will be successful in whatever he 
attempts in the future. 


Doodz, a contribution of Park Ridge, a suburb of Chicago, 
followed the straight line path from Maine East High to Navy. This 
avid Black Hawk fan held only one grudge against Plebe year: he 
never could figure out why the D & B didn't have training tables. 
One of the better first sopranos in the corps, Doodz is often found 
trying to tune his Martan guitar to classical music. Academically, 
Luce Hall with its war games and statistical theory held some 
special meaning for this Operations Analysis major who very 
seldom saw the underside of a 3.30. Doodz seems to be standing 
on the threshold of an unlimited future and will surely be an 
invaluable asset to the naval service. 


Leo is one that none of us will soon forget. A better impression 
of James Brown's "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" you've never 
seen. As for grades, a sobering experience Plebe year convinced 
Leo of the wisdom in Attending class and thereafter Leo always 
managed to end up on the plus side of 2.00. A rugged competitor 
on the touch football field Leo was well known for his spirit and 
aggressiveness. In between studying and his constant strive for 
professionalism Leo found time to make many good friends. His 
stay at the Academy has prepared Leo well for whatever might 
come his way in the future, and with his many fine qualities Leo is 
sure of success. 





Navy bred by a senior Chief Petty Officer, Gordy hails from 
Hayward, California. Being one of the last members of the class to 
report to USNA has not influenced his academic standing. Piling 
on the books for four years, the fleet should represent a welcomed 
change for this upcoming naval architect. One cannot forget his 
non-academic merits. A fierce competitor in company football, 
soccer and softball, he is always in the quick of things. His quick 
wit and cheerful smile accomplishes wonders with mids and girls 
alike. USNA might be losing an academic slash but the fleet is 
gaining an excellent officer. 


Gully came to the Academy from the sandy shores of Virginia 
Beach and we never heard the end of it. After a productive Plebe 
summer (he was a permanent member of the marching awkward 
squad and gained notariety from dribbling through the Rotunda in 
sweat gear), Gregg went through all of Plebe and Youngster year 
without a demerit. Second class year long hair and sloppy 
roommates finally caught up with Gully and his perfect conduct 
record recieved its first blemishes. A well versified performer 
Gregg was a frequent member of the Supt's List as well as a 
standout on the basketball court. Gregg's friendliness, dedication, 
and sincerity won him many friends and will serve him well 
throughout life. 


Having spent three semesters at the University of Maryland and 
two months pumping gas in nearby Bethesda, "Lanny" abandoned 
the adventurous life of SAE parties and fast cars for the hallowed 
halls of Mother B and an Aerospace minor. "Pants" can best be 
remembered for his talents as a pole vaulter on the track team. 
After a summer of thumping Plebes, he won his coveted N-sweater 
the following Fall. Although not the Trident Scholar type, he 
remained sat and was usually out enjoying the feminine secenery 
on weekends. A native of Maryland, Lanny has won the respect 
and admiration of those around him and will undoubtedly become 
a great asset in any branch of the service he elects to pursue. 


Dan came out of the hills of North Georgia to Annapolis after 
completing four impressive scholastic and athletic years at South 
Cobb High School in Austell, Georgia. A three letter man pre- 
viously, once at the Academy he concentrated his efforts on the 
Navy baseball team where he started for the Plebe team and 
played three years for the varsity. Always a pleasure to have 
around. Dan's warm personality and subtle wit puts him among 
the Brigade's most popular, and his Southern hospitality should 
continue to aid him in his life-long hobby— girls. Regardless of 
what graduation might bring, the Navy is receiving a potentially 
outstanding officer, and we're sure the "Georgia Peach" will make 
the most of it. 


A Navy junior, T. P. came to the Academy from Bethesda, 
Maryland and Walter Johnson High School. Although not a giant, 
he impressed us all with his academic and athletic achievements. A 
continuous member of the Dean's and Supt's Lists since Plebe 
year. He was quick enough to beat most of the big boys in 
football. Known to the girls as Tom, he holds the record for 
dragging more Marys than most people know. T. P. was also a 
member of the Academy's only honor society in physics. Sigma Pi 
Sigma. It is easy to see that the Navy will gain an outstanding 
officer when the "squirrel" joins the fleet. He hopes to follow his 
father's footsteps as a career naval officer. 


Steve, "The Kid", hails from the bustling metropolis of 
Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. A firm believer in hard work and hard 
play, Steve excels in both. As our Second Class six-striper, his 
enthusiasm and leadership has been instrumental in developing 
class spirit and unity. On weekends, Steve is seldom seen without a 
drag and likes to "keep 'em guessing." Although never on the bad 
side of a 3.0, he has watched his stars corrode in his drawer for 
five semesters. In sports, from varsity football to company 
fieldball, Steve consistently displays leadership and an unmatch- 
able will to win. No matter where Steve finds himself in the naval 
service, his leadership ability and outstanding spirit will make him 
an asset to any endeavor. 



After a successful tour of duty at Gueydan High Freddie 
attended Marion Institute for two semesters. Fred's desire to be a 
leader among men and his longing for the sea led him to the shores 
of the Severn. Between a Chemistry major, the Musical Club 
Shows and varsity sailing, Fred's impeccable taste for women was 
notorious. Stribling Walk was rebuilt in his room. His name has 
become synonymous with comedy and humor. Fred's biting 
sarcasm and unparalleled wit will long be remembered by all those 
who knew "Tecumseh." The "Cajun King" with his uncanny 
ability to win friends and sincerity of thought will be worthy of 
the best that life has to offer. 


As one of Portsmouth, New Hampshire's most noble gifts to 
"Canoe U.", fightin' Ernie came to the shores of the Chesapeake 
directly from St. Thomas Aquinas High School. As an avid fan of 
physical fitness, on most afternoons he can be seen running 
Farragut Field, and most evenings he can be seen running the 
"fourth estate athletic club". Bob's quick and ready wit will leave 
a lasting mark on 'Old Mother B.' Although he tells us that his first 
love is marching, dreams of leading men are closer to his heart. 
Bob will make a welcome addition to any squadron. 


Jim caught the eye of the Naval Academy football scouts 
during a brilliant season at Bullis Prep and was persuaded to lease 
his talents to the Big "Blue and Gold" for the next four years. 
Midshipman McGovern's presence at the Naval Academy has been 
marked with an academic perseverance illustrated by his consistent 
burning of "the midnight oil." Jim may best be termed an 
individualist maintaining a staunch set of principles and gifted 
with a capability of oral suasion unequaled by his peers. As an 
uppercalssman, Jim has always been considered stern and yet 
unfailingly just. Jim is an outstanding midshipman gifted with the 
leadership talents which will ensure him of uninhibited success in 
any future endeavors. 


George left the steel mills of Pittsburgh and Turtle Creek High 
School to don the uniform of a midshipman. Despite the ups and 
downs of Plebe year, he was able to come out on top, maintaining 
a good academic average with little effort. Part of his time was 
spent with the Musical Clubs Show and the Masqueraders. Known 
as an animal on the company heavyweight football team, George 
undoubtedly holds the record for dragging nearly every weekend 
while at the Academy, including Plebe year. George's keen interest 
in the Navy will lead him into a successful career as a naval officer.

"Ski" came to the shimmering shores of the Severn from 
Johnson City, New York. Never one to let a difficult situation get 
the best of him, Mike handled the problems of Plebe year with a 
relative amount of success. Mike's afternoons for four years were 
dedicated to the confines of Macdonough Hall where he earned 
honors as a gymnast. For his efforts, he was elected as captain of 
the Plebe and varsity gymnastics teams. Mike's efforts weren't 
always directed towards athletics. He was also a dedicated pursuer 
of the 'fairer sex' which he claimed left him ready for the poverty 
program. Mike's proven leadership ability and rational outlook on 
life will be a definite asset to the naval service. 


Tom alias "The Rach", joined "our nations finest" after four 
years of high school in the frozen wastes of Massachusetts. When 
not in the pad, playing pinochle or writing to his OAO, Tom has 
devoted considerable time and talent to the Foreign Relations 
Club and NAFAC. Despite a one to four work to grade ratio, he 
has consistently maintained averages in the Supt's List range. After 
frustrating years in the back ranks, he has found in the "counsel- 
ling" of freshman a source of satisfaction and relaxation. Tom's 
wit, determination and great administrative abilities would be a 
welcome asset anywhere and expecially in the officer corps of the 


Rudes has made many lasting friends during his stay at Navy — 
his best friend being the pad. When he wasn't studying horizontal 
envelopment he could usually be found studying, working out or 
playing pinochle — not necessarily in that order. When it comes to 
sports, Rudes puts all he has into what he's doing. If contests were 
won solely on effort. He'd win by a landslide every time. His 
determination was put to use as a member of the Navy wrestling 
team and intramural softball team. As a true gentleman and just a 
plain old good guy Rudes has what it takes to be one of the finest 
officers in the naval service. 


Starting from Georgia, Jeep settled where Severn meets the Bay 
enjoying one of the finer Plebe years. Jeep developed a lasting love 
for the Academy. Sweating through a few "AC" boards, he's come 
through with a lot of work, and a little luck when it counted. As 
expected, he has many interests athletically, Geoff is a fierce, fair 
competitor, trying any sport just for fun. His interests vary from 
karate to football with parachuting and rugby on the side. His fine 
taste in music can be attested to by his record library. Sports and 
academics don't occupy all his time; he still finds a moment for 
the fair sex and is always meeting new, interesting femmes 


Dave hails from the thriving metropolis of Homer City, Penn- 
sylvania. After spending a year at Columbian Prep, Dave entered 
the Naval Academy with a sound background in academics and 
athletics, with the latter being more prevalent. Dave played Plebe 
and varsity football and was very active in company sports during 
his stay at the Academy. Though academics were an integral part 
of his stay at the Academy, the monthly letter from the Admiral 
never seemed to phase him! One of the more popular men in the 
company, his wit, determination, and perseverance should serve 
him well in the future, and we know his career will be a successful 


New Castle's finest came to the sunny shores of the Severn via 
NAPS where he quickly learned the "finer arts" of Navy life and 
walked off with the outstanding football and lacrosse player 
awards. A devoted athlete in all sports, Sherb has played both 
varsity football and lacrosse with TAD as a "Mighty Mite" and one 
of the "Weems Creek Boys." While being a dedicated "Sleepy 
Hollow" fan, Pat somehow managed to stay awake long enough to 
minor in Naval Architecture. Never one to pass up a good fight or 
a five minute nap that usually lasted three hours, Sherb will carry 
his competitive spirit and his belief that nothing is impossible into 
his duties as an officer and leader. 



A proud son of the Lone Star state, schooled in New England 
and raised in a Navy fanriily. Jack quickly caught up with the 
Academy's activities, especially the Choir, Glee Club and Musical 
Clubs Show. But it was his own barber shop quartet, "The Brass 
Buttons" that won him fame. Inspite of a memorable Plebe year. 
Glee Club trips, and girls. Jack has maintained a 3.0 CUM. A 
perennial wit, he's never at a loss for a jovial quip to give all a 
happy feeling. When not slashing Math courses, he could usually 
be found tinkering around his hi-fi gear. But no matter what his 
interests. Jack will always be a credit to his outfit because of his 
perserverance and friendliness. 


Pat or "Poop", as many of his classmates and friends call him, 
came to Annapolis right out of Webb High School from the land 
of sunshine, girls and surf. Southern California. A Navy junior, Pat 
found no problems with Plebe year and settled down to his most 
serious problem, academics. Although a struggler, he still managed 
to find time for such diverse activities as the Brigade Hop 
Committee and Plebe soccer. Later, turning his athletic prowess to 
company sports, he could always be counted on to give his best on 
the football, soccer, and Softball teams. With his pleasing person- 
ality Pat has made many friends throughout the Brigade. His 
determination and zeal will make him an invaluable asset to the 


Ed left his heart in San Francisco but brought his thrill for 
sports and never ending good humor to Annapolis. Wally's sense of 
humor made Plebe year more bearable and an upperclass years 
more enjoyable for all he knew. A Navy athletic victory was Ed's 
biggest kick and he worked hard to see many of them with the 
B.A.C. He was himself responsible for many company victories in 
Softball and his favorite, fieldball. Wally made the most of the 
academic buildings for his studies in Nuclear Engineering and left 
Bancroft Hall as his place of rest, rest for the upcoming weekends 
which he always made the most of. Ed will surely be one of the 
Academy's greater contributions to the naval service. 


A Navy junior, John hails from the sunny Southern California 
city of Glendora. After making his way to the banks of the Severn 
from Pomona Catholic, "Snow" set out on his long anticipated 
Naval career. Though not known for his academic prowess, he 
could often be found giving E. I. to the classmate. An excellent 
tennis player in high school, John's athletic talents were funnelled 
towards anchoring the batt squash and tennis teams. Although an 
excellent performer on the blue trampoline, occasionally he could 
take time out from practice to spend some time with the "boob 
tube" Navy. No matter what John does, his conscientious attitude 
along with his quiet, yet friendly personality will bring him 


In Memoriam 


Phil came to the Naval Academy from Pacific Palisades, 
California. From the start, he always had a ready smile and 
soon proved his ability to handle academics with ease. Al- 
ways ready for a basketball game, Phil furthered his interest 
in dramatics, thereby showing himself to be a truly versatile 
person. As time progressed and the rigors of plebe and 
youngster year eased up, he began to commit himself with 
typical enthusiasm to success in the Navy. But then the cruel 
hand of fate descended and took Phil from us. We will always 
remember him as our classmate and buddy. 


Edward Davis Sharp came to the Naval Academy from 
Hattiesburg, Mississippi in June of 1964. Academics proved 
to be difficult for "Dave", but they could not dampen his 
spirit and desire to become an Officer of Marines. Friends 
came easily to Dave. The niceness of his nature, sense of 
leadership and humble personality won for him many close 
relationships with his fellow men. His team spirit, love of 
people and love of God led him to be an active member of 
the Naval Academy Christian Association. 

Homecoming Weekend of 1967 brought a deep loss to the 
entire Brigade. Dave Sharp left us then, but he will long be 
remembered by his classmates and those around him be- 
cause . . . "no one else was ever quite like him."

The hundreds of U.S. Navy- 
Fleet Ballistic Missiles now 
deployed are anything but 
secret weapons. The world 
knows well that they exist— 
somewhere — aboard dozens 
of cruising nuclear subma- 
rines. Their silent presence 
speaks distinctly to all poten- 
tial aggressors: An attack 
on the United States or its 
allies brings rapid and devas- 
tating retaliation. So the 
only reasonable reply to this 
message is peace. 

This situation grew out of 
action first taken by the 
Navy in 1955 when specifica- 
tions were written for an 
advanced weapon system 
centering around Polaris. 
Plans called for it to be both 
an up-to-date and updatable 
deterrent force. 

Lockheed responded as 
the missile systems manager. 
Working together with the 
Navy-plus over 10,000 firms 
-Lockheed helped develop 
and build Polaris. By fore- 
casting certain technological 
state-of-the-art advances, 
and allowing for incorpora- 
tion of others that might 
occur, the Navy and Lock- 
heed planned Polaris to be 

extensible for years to come. 

Resulting from this total 
response, the first Polaris- 
armed submarine went on 
duty in 1960. This came 
three years ahead of the 
originally planned target 
date — and within budget. 
Since then, Polaris A-1 
(range, 1,200 naut. mi.) has 
given way to A-2 (range, 
1,500 naut. mi.) and A-3 
(range, 2,500 naut. mi.) 
models. Now the Antelope 
program is honing further 
Polaris' already keen capa- 
bilities. And the next step 
is Poseidon. Built at Lock- 
heed Missiles & Space Com- 
pany, Sunnyvale, California, 
it will be launched by the 
same submarines as Polaris. 
By carrying twice the pay- 
load of Polaris with twice the 
accuracy, Poseidon's silent 
message to aggressors will be 
the clearest yet. 

Understanding present 
mission requirements and 
anticipating future ones, 
combined with technological 
competence and manufactur- 
ing craftsmanship, enables 
Lockheed to respond to the 
needs of the Navy in a 
divided world.

at Boeing. 

Boeing 737, the world's most advanced short- 
range jetliner, is the first airliner to bring big- 
jet comfort to short-haul routes. 

NASA's Boeing-built Lunar Orbiter was the 
first U.S. spacecraft to orbit the moon and 
photograph far side of moon. Orbiters have 
photographed thousands of square miles of 
the lunar surface to help NASA scientists 
select best landing site for Apollo astronauts. 

747 superjet, the world's largest commercial 
jetliner, will carry from 360 to 490 passengers, 
and usher in new era of spaciousness and com- 
fort in jet travel. Deliveries begin this year. 

Minuteman is U.S. Air Force's quick-firing, 
solid-fuel ICBM. Boeing is weapon system 
integrator, responsible for assembly, test, 
launch control and ground support systems. 

727-200, long-body version of standard 727, 
world's most popular jetliner, can carry up to 
178 passengers. Designed especially for high- 
density, commuter routes. 

Twin turbine Boeing helicopters, built by Ver-

Some of our nation's newest ships are 20 years old. 

If you think the warships in our moth- 
ball fleet are somewhat past their prime, 
consider our merchant marine: 
Only one in five of the nation's mer- 
chant ships is under 10 years old. Two- 
thirds of them are too old, too small, 
too slow, too costly to operate to com- 
pete effectively with newer foreign ves- 
sels. At the present rate of replacement, 
and retirement of tonnage older than 
25 years, our present dry cargo mer- 
chant fleet of 663 ships could be down 
to 260 vessels in 4 years. 
That's a dangerous situation. For our 

country is far from self-sufficient. Of 
77 strategic materials needed to turn 
the wheels of American industry, we 
must import 66 — and already we're 
relying on foreign shipping for nearly 
95% of our imports and exports. Mean- 
while other nations are building more 
ships than we are, Russia by 8 to 1. 
Russia and 13 others are outbuilding us 
in terms of tonnage. 
We must rebuild our merchant fleet 
now. No business is more urgent. Not 
even outer space. And unless we build 
the ships we need in U.S. yards, we 

can't be sure of getting either ships or 
shipping at a time when we might need 
them even more than now. With mod- 
ern yards on every U.S. coast, Todd is 
ready to do its share ... in shipbuilding, 
repairs, and conversion.

a Rolex 

Most fine watches look the same. But you can spot a Rolex 

from the other end of a 40-ft. yacht. i 

Its classic shape is carved out of a solid block of Swedish 
stainless steel. The result is the Oyster case. . .so waterproof 
we recommend you scrub it down with soap and water to 
clean it. 

The heart of all this protection is a self-winding, 26-jewel 
officially certified chronometer. 

Because so much of the work is done by hand, it takes 
us more than a year to build a Rolex. Sir Francis Chichester 
felt it was time well spent. He depended on a Rolex 
Chronometer for his entire voyage. 

This is the Rolex Submariner Chronometer, guaranteed pressure-proof 
down to 660 feet, worn by the crews of the 1967 America's Cup contenders. 
$210 with matching bracelet. Other Oyster Perpetual Chronometers— 
in steel, steel-and-gold, or gold— from $175.

Our Third 














For years we went by our initials. GT&E. 
Short and snappy. We liked it. Then we found out 
most people didn't know what it meant. 

So we began using our full corporate name in 
all its 30 letter grandeur. 

Turns out many people, maybe you, are still pretty fuzzy about 
what we do. 

Well, it's like this. We do a lot of things. Because we're a lot of 
companies. More than 60. 

Sylvania is one of us. The Sylvania of television, stereo and radio 
fame. The same Sylvania that makes more than 6000 different kinds 
of lighting products. The ve^ same Sylvania that developed the 
bright red phosphor that brought color television out of the dark ages. 

To millions of Americans in our areas we're also "the phone com- 
pany." We're the second largest one in the country. We even go so far 
as to manufacture most of our own equipment. Print and Publish our 
own yellow pages. 

We modestly admit that we're intimately involved in nearly every 
facet of communications and electronics. Why even as you read this 
scientists in our labs are answering questions most people haven't 
yet wondered about. And in one of our plants somewhere, someone 
is making something you don't even know you use. 

For now, it's enough that you know who we are and generally what 
we do. 

Next question.

V8's up to 325 horsepower. And 
Camaro's the only American car 

besides Corvette that offers

Camaro's got a lot more going

that comes with a big V8, power 
disc brakes, beefed-up suspension, 
a special floor shift and wide oval

But don't think for a minute

YOU Should Join the ASMBAl^am 



ou can look forward to an exciting career. 

We know because our membership is com- 
posed largely of career people. Thou- 
sands throughout the world, in all 

military branches. 

Whether married or unmarried, they have 
these attributes in common: 

1) They serve their nation well. 

2) They think secure. 

ur military founders w^ere "thinking se- 
cure" when they formed ASMBA as a fra- 
ternal association to provide adequate cover- 
age within a limited budget. 

By grouping their resources, our members 
get maximum low-cost term coverage and 
have money left over to invest in the Ameri- 
can economy. 

^^nless you proceed to build security in 
such a manner, you may one day retire from 
an exciting Naval career and be un- 
able to afford the excitement you 
would like. 

ASMBA is a non-profit, tax-exempt military 
association, not affiliated with any commer- 
cial insuror or underwriter. We retain pro- 
fessional financial consultants to assist in 
offering more significant benefits to our

Admiral Robert B. Carney, USN. 

President of the Naval 
Academy Alumni Association 

Alumni of the Naval Academy are to be found today in positions of re- 
sponsibility and leadership in every major element of our society — in the 
military, in industry, in education and in government. A cohesive, enlight- 
ened and dedicated alumni can accomplish much in providing the vital 
leadership, military and civilian, which is required today, if this country is 
to meet the challenge with which we are now squarely face to face. 

I extend to you my best wishes in this worthwhile endeavor.

The woven building: 5 times as tall 
as the Empire State Building. 

buildings, bridges, airplane frames. 

Right now, Avco's Applied Technology 
Division is developing a new technique for 
"weaving" boron (or any other filament). 
Not the kind of weaving you might do with 
cotton — boron is far too stiff to be inter- 
meshed in the conventional way. But by 
arranging the filaments in a special 3-D 
pattern, with strands running in three direc- 
tions, each perpendicular to the others, 
unique structures suddenly become-a reality. 

And Avco scientists are hot on the trail 
of some other astonishing new space-age 
materials as well. In fact, materials research 
is one of Avco's growth fields of the future. 
All in all, Avco is deeply involved in no less 

Avco is 55.000 people moving ahead in a dozen growing, expanding businesses. Avco Corporation. 750 Third Ave., N. Y., N. Y. 10017. An equal opportunity employer 

The weavers in Lowell, Massachusetts have 
been famous for over a century. But no 
chambray, gingham, or voile they ever 
loomed holds a candle to their latest 

It's a weave of boron tilament. 

New processing techniques could make 
boron a key material of the future. Pound 
for pound, it's got five times the tensile 
strength of steel. In filament form, it can be 
combined with metals or plastics to produce 
a stronger, more rigid structural framework, 
at about half the weight of current ones. For 

than 21 of the areas Forbes described re- 
cently as the ones on the threshold of the 
greatest dynamism over the next 15 years. 

Like space exploration. And aircraft en- 
gines. And broadcasting, insurance, finance 
and medical research. 

In a way, the current term, "conglomer- 
ate," doesn't really describe us accurately. 

How about a here-and-now company with 
one foot firmly planted in the future?

How do you 
master a million-mile 


Security depends more each day on being able to find and neutralize submarines 

in minutes, not iiours, and in tiie depths of the seas, not their shallows. 

As the problem gets more complex, the solutions become more intricate. 

Sophisticated sonobuoys, challenging enough to design and 

deliver, are useless without the airborne analyzer 

than finds the pattern in their returns. Or without the 

navigation equipment that knows where you really are. 

Problems like this demand the system approach. The Sanders approach. 

Because Sanders appreciates the consequences, because our 

employees have the system engineering skills needed, 

we have made a continuing commitment to keep the seas secure.

fresh, Ankorite 387-F is unsurpassed. It can- 
not break down under hydraulic pressure 
because its interior iiMmpervious. It has a 
resilient Ankoprene synthetic rubber core 
which is bonded to the inner braids with a 
water-tight binder. A portion of the liquid may 
be absorbed by the soft outer braid inter- 
spersed with soft lead wires, permitting a 

durable, low friction contact without impair- 
ment to shaft surface. 

Ankorite 387-F is also excellent for circulating 
pumps, high pressure hydraulic apparatus, 
hydro-turbine shafts, and water works pumps.

Editor's Note 

Photo Editor 

Before I begin ail the credits and thank-you's, I'd like to 
make a few connments about what the LUCKY BAG means to 
me and what we've tried to do with it. 

To me, a LUCKY BAG is the only permanent record of a 
year at the Academy. It should reflect upon the year as 
experienced by all four classes, and I have felt strongly about 
Brigade-wide participation in creating the LUCKY BAG. Along 
these lines we have tried to include more of the underclass in 
the '69 LUCKY BAG in order to make it more worthwhile to 

I have always felt a little sad upon walking into the reception 
room in Bancroft Hall and seeing one year old LUCKY BAGS 
with broken bindings. Therefore, we have greatly reduced the 
physical size of the '69 LUCKY BAG in hopes of prolonging its 
life and making it less unwieldy. 

This has been a year of many changes for the LUCKY BAG. 
In addition to making it smaller, we have created the Features 
and Year sections in order to keep up with contemporary 
college yearbook trends. The new Album section is an attempt 
to provide a four-year class history in a place where it does not 
detract from the dignity of the book, and at the same time, 
makes the advertisements more valuable. 

Credit for the very existence of this LUCKY BAG must be 
shared with my managing editor, Marshall Rachmiel. He has 
been my procurer for everything from group photos to office 
chairs and has taken so much of the administrative load as to 
leave me free to concentrate on the editorial content. Photo- 
editor Jim Sandberg has done a tremendous job at co-ordinating 
the photo staff and supplying our picture needs. In addition to 
editing the Features section, Mike Lounge helped considerably 
with miscellaneous jobs and headaches. 

For the most part, photo credits are impossible, but I would 
like to single out Greg Morris for his photos of Plebe summer, 
and Jim Sandberg for the cars and girls, both in the Feature 

One of the prime movers of this book has been Major C. 
Albans, U.S.M.C, of the English, History and Government 
Department, who has been our Officer Representative. Without 
his help we would have faltered many times. 

I would like to thank Tony Mumpower and John Breeding of 
the Delmar Company of Maryland, for their help and advice in 
all areas of production. 

My sincere gratitude goes to Dempsey Limbaugh and Miss 
Rita Pafford of Harris & Ewing Photographers in Washington, D. 
C, who provided our senior portraits. 

I would like to thank Vince D'Ambrosio, Wayne Wolfe, 
Oneal SmyrI, and especially Ralph Criminger, all with the 
Delmar Printing Company, and Joe Roche of the S. K. Smith 

Finally, I would like to thank Ed Wilson, Fritz Hafner, 
Marion Warren, Lt. James Duffy, John Snakenberg, Terry Cullen, 
Coach Art Potter, and Coach Jim Gehrdes, each for their signi- 
ficant help in one way or another.
